Samsung in ‘last-stage talks’ with Google to launch Google TV sometime next year

Samsung and Google have been an unbeatable couple.  It only makes sense that one of the world’s top producers of high quality flatscreen TVs would continue to join forces with the world’s top search engine and its highly customizable OS.  I don’t have to tell you, but this is very exciting news.  I mean, when a company like Samsung says they want to… Read more

Has Google TV become a hobby for Google?

Not everything is going to be a break-out success. Even when we look at the release of Android, it didn’t take the world by storm in one night, or even a month.

Honeycomb headed for Google TV this year–preview the UI

Google TV had a bit of a rough start last year, due largely to the fact that a lot of people weren’t sure why on Earth they would need such integration when watching the tube with an old lappy is so comfortable. But the general public is taking note of what universal searching, PIP app access, and Google account employment can do for a lazy afternoon with… Read more

The last time we heard the name Kevin Bacon and Google TV in the same sentence, it was regarding a mildly creepy commercial spot promoting the Logitech Revue. Fortunately, that hasn’t changed. Found on the Official Google TV Blog, Ivan Cobenk (who is really Bacon) has written a post talking about how his extended Kevin Bacon video has made it to… Read more
