$1,000 bounty: root Google TV, add third-party apps

As if the ability to run market apps and get into tweaking, extending, and possibly theming Google TV weren’t motivation enough for the capable legions of Android hackers in cyberspace, MagicAndroidApps.com is offering up $1,000, via Paypal, to the first person who can successfully root a Google TV product and get third-party apps working before Google offers official support. Proof must be offered by way of a YouTube video.

The competition might get pretty fierce here and considering the possibilities (watching Google TV-blocked online content?) whoever achieves this task will also have the love and admiration of an army of Google TV enthusiasts. The already fascinating world of Google TV might be getting a bit more interesting in the near future.
