Google to Introduce TV Software
I think any time Google gets involved it’s for the better of competition. Not sure this will have an effect on the HTPC crowd since it appears more geared for set top boxes, but still it’s an intriguing prospect having a giant like them compete with the standard Comcasts of the world.
The technology—designed to open set-top boxes, TVs and other devices to more content from the Internet—is attracting interest from partners that include Sony Corp., Intel Corp. and Logitech International SA, which are expected to offer products that support the software, these people said. None have so far discussed the efforts publicly.
