GeekTonic – Why Did Google Buy SageTV?

I have to agree with most of what Brent says in his editorial on what Google hopes to do with SageTV – especially the points on AllVid.  Whatever they have in store for us, I’m looking forward to reviewing it 🙂

It’s been three weeks since Google gobbled up the tiny Home Theater PC company, SageTV.  The tech blogs, mainstream media publications and even former competition have weighed in on the acquisition.  Now that the dust has settled it’s time to review what we know.  There are many things about SageTV that might have been appealing to Google.  Google is a company looking to acquire technology where they can inject quick & tested technology for it’s vision of home media.
