    Watch Out, UK. Google TV Is Coming Your Way

    Google TV soft launched in the US last September with the Logitech Revue and Sony Internet TV products. Google however is reportedly working on bringing the system to the UK and per a Telegraph report sourcing Eric Schmidt, the fun starts within the next six months. Thankfully, UK buyers don't exactly have to start saving their quids since both product lines recently got major price… Read More

    Sony Cuts Prices On Google TV-Integrated HDTVs

    Google TV hasn't exactly set the world on fire, and while we could argue all day about what exactly prevented it from achieving greatness, the expensive hardware has to at least be part of the discussion. Logitech bit the bullet two weeks ago and lowered the price of their Revue from $250 to $99 — and it seems Sony has decided they might take a bit of that medicine too. Read More

  • Logitech Loses Big On Google TV, Revue Price Cut From $250 To $99

    Logitech Loses Big On Google TV, Revue Price Cut From $250 To $99

    I'll just say it: Google TV is sinking and taking its crew down with her. The service promised to bring new life to HDTVs when it launched last October. But it didn't. Big media made sure of it by blocking access to their online streaming, seemingly taking away Google TV's most novel feature. Without online streaming, Google TV's awesome search tool is crippled and the system is just an overpriced… Read More

  • Amazon Cuts The Price Of The Logitech Revue Google TV To $200

    Amazon Cuts The Price Of The Logitech Revue Google TV To $200

    Looking for a good deal on the Logitech Revue? Amazon has you covered. While I’d caution most from going the Google TV route — especially with the new GTV hardware and changes on tap — there’s no questioning a 33% price drop is huge. Amazon’s new price, assuming it’s not a limited time sale, puts the Revue at the same price point as the Boxee Box. The two are… Read More

  • A Peek At Google TV's New Interface

    A Peek At Google TV's New Interface

    Google announced yesterday that Google TV would be expanding and getting Android 3.1, but aside from some new manufacturers, there wasn’t much to show. Today, though, during another GTV-related developer talk, they showed off the new interface (above) and noted that the remote app API was being open-sourced. That’s nice — hopefully we’ll see more support in universal remote… Read More

  • Google TV Finds New Friends And An Updated OS

    Google TV Finds New Friends And An Updated OS

    Google's mantra of launching products early and often didn't exactly work with Google TV. It hit the ground with a gimped feature set and limited hardware options. The analogy of Android simply hasn't held true as hardware makers and retail vendors alike simply haven't picked up the devices. Today, at Google I/O, new hardware partners were announced as well as an updated OS. Google TV might… Read More

    OMG/JK: Can Google Correct Last Year's Big I/O Flops This Year?

    It's just about that time again. Google I/O is happening next week and just as in year's past, the company is expected to announce some big things on stage during their two keynotes on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. But what will those things be? Jason and I delve into some predictions for the event, which we'll both be covering. But first we take some time to look back at last year's I/O which… Read More

  • Wow, Google Has Ported My Ten Thousand Button Nightmare To The iPhone!

    Wow, Google Has Ported My Ten Thousand Button Nightmare To The iPhone!

    Back in October of last year, I got my first glance at the Sony Google TV remote. I immediately broke out into a cold sweat and hives. I mean, just look at the thing. Our collective living rooms are already a nightmare of boxes and cords — Sony and Google managed to translate that nightmare into remote control form as well. And now that nightmare is going virtual. Earlier today, Google Read More

    Latest Google TV Update Fixes Bugs, Does Not Bring Android Market

    The Google TV platform is alive and well. The dev team pushed through an updated to the Logitech Revue and Sony Internet TV products earlier in the week that squashed bugs and updated several features. But the big news is that the updated did not include Android Market. That’s not surprising. I spoke to the Google TV product lead a few weeks back and the official timetable response to… Read More
