    GoOgle TV Update

    Popular - Google Fast Flip

    Much of this morning's demo consisted of showing off the search feature and how users will be able to browse the Web using their television. Searching on Google TV allows users to find content both on the Web and on the TV. From there, they can view web content, view TV content or even set their DVR to record TV shows that air at a later time.
    The demo got interesting when the presenters started showing off some of the integration with smartphones and the Android marketplace. Not only can Google TV be controlled using a smartphone and speech recognition, but the Google TV hardware will be able to run any Android app in the market place that doesn't require phone-specific hardware to operate. So Pandora, Twitter, Facebook - anything that's an app for Android - will be available in a simplified form for the television.

    Google TV was released today on a nice looking Logitech box.

    I am thinking I'll be getting this for Christmas...this looks pretty cool.
