If you've had a chance to use Google's voice search tool, then you already know why many feel that it beats the pants off Apple's highly-touted Siri software. Now Google has integrated Google TV functionality into its voice search tool, and the result looks like something from the future.
Connecting our content and cloud-based services to the various devices throughout our home and office environments has become increasingly complicated. Now Google has significantly simplified at least one aspect of seamless cross-device content consumption via YouTube.
We thought Google TV died last summer. Apparently nobody got the memo because the second wave of Google TV boxes are launching this summer. Continuing its attempt to dominate the home, Vizio just unveiled its own affordable Google TV set-top box that looks to pack quite the wallop.
In the race to beat Apple to the punch on a voice-controlled TV, Google's preparing for the worst. Or at least, that's the thinking behind the company's latest patent that calls for Siri-like commands to operate a Google TV unit.
Samsung must be crazy because it's apparently in talks with Google to produce HDTVs with Google TV baked in. Yep, that Google TV. The one that's only been supported by Sony and Logitech and blocked by major networks everywhere. Talk about jumping on a grenade that's about to detonate!
The Logitech Revue was the main piece of hardware available for the initial Google TV rollout. It didn't do well. It did so poorly, in fact, that Logitech won't be making a followup Google TV device.
Launched last year to lukewarm reception, Google TV flopped hard because of a number of things — overpriced set top boxes and integrated HDTVs as well as a bare and hard to navigate interface. Say hello to Google TV again, because Google's giving it another whack with a new update.
Google TV, when it was first released, didn't quite set the world on fire. While it had a lot of interesting ideas, its execution was found to be lacking and few people ended up getting on board. Google's hoping to change that with Google TV 2.0.
Hey, remember Google TV? It didn't exactly set the world on fire when it was released earlier this year, but that doesn't mean Google's given up on it. In fact, they just got TBS and TNT on board.
Dun dun dun. That is Google TV going down the toilet. Google's kindly asked its electronics partners to not showcase any Google TV wares at next month's Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Is this a sign of Google TV's early demise before it even had a chance to hit home?
