Google and Linux are coming to your TV

,----[ Quote ]
| In what may have been Google's worst kept 
| secret in years, Google, along with its 
| partners, Intel, Logitech and Sony, is on its 
| way to delivering the Web to your television. 
| What will they be using to do this? Why, 
| they'll be using Google's Android Linux, of 
| course.
| Android is an embedded Linux that Google has 
| already been deploying in phones like its own 
| Nexus One and Motorola's Devour and Droid. 
| But Android has always been more than just a 
| smartphone operating system; it's also been 
| used in netbooks and other devices. So taking 
| it to a TV set-top box was an easy move for 
| Google and its hardware friends. 


News analysis: Google, partners have clout to make smart TV a reality

,----[ Quote< ]
| With Google said to be working with Intel and 
| Sony to develop a way to bring the best of 
| the Internet to television, industry analysts 
| wonder if the time for a smart TV has finally 
| arrived.


Get Ready For Google TV, It's Linux Too!

| Google has reportedly joined hands with 
| Intel, Sony and Logitech to create Google TV. 
| What is Google TV and why Google is suddenly 
| interested in a new medium: TV?




YouTubeâs Bandwidth Bill Is Zero. Welcome to the New Net

,----[ Quote ]
| YouTube may pay less to be online than you 
| do, a new report on internet connectivity 
| suggests, calling into question a recent 
| analysis arguing Googleâs popular video 
| service is bleeding money and demonstrating 
| how the internet has continued to morph to 
| fit userâs behavior.



More Details Leak Out About Googleâs Plans For The Set-Top Box

,----[ Quote ]
| The NYT says the serviceâwith the apropos name
| âGoogle TVââis being developed in conjunction
| with Sony (NYSE: SNE) and Intel; (NSDQ: INTC)
| the testing, meanwhile, is being done with the
| Dish Network.


The Irony of Microsoft's Anti-Google Apps Campaign on YouTube

,----[ Quote ]
| In a Microsoft video extolling its virtues,
| the narrator makes the point that marketing is
| difficult with Google Apps. It's far simpler
| with Microsoft Office.
| So we find it deliciously ironic that
| Microsoft is marketing a number of anti-Google
| Apps videos using Google's YouTube.
| Hmm...doesn't that defeat the point a bit?
| [...]
| It all feels like a company protecting its
| power base more so than embracing the current
| disruption in the market.
