As I’m working on connected TVs project, I was really interested by Google I/O conference and the presentation of their Google TV platform. > see full coverage from Engadget
I really enjoyed one of their slide showing a whole family packed on the couch behind a laptop to view the latest holidays pictures with an unused blank TV set in the back.
It is a good summary of what is at stake with connected TVs: Bringing the biggest and prettiest screen of the home in the digital world.
As for Google powered TV, and program search,I believe they still have a long way to go. But given their focus and pool of resource, they can move (very) fast.
