Your goggle box to become your Google box

Ian Hancock General

Google has launched it new service which looks to combine TV and the internet. With the use of a special TV set or a normal television plugged into a Google box you can now access content from the web in the comfort of your living room; viewing things like YouTube videos, live streamed content and web pages.

Google TV is a ‘natural extension of the web’ combining two of the most commonly used medium into one mighty content based interface.

Whilst the idea makes a lot of sense there have been a number of similar initiative in the past that have proved unsuccessful so it’s definitely worth holding off on this before opening up your wallet for another technology spend.
