Google TV vs. Apple TV, part 1: interface, YouTube, Netflix

Of course the primary difference between Google TV and Apple TV is that the former is meant to provide some new content and integrate with an existing supply of content (from your cable or dish supplier) and the later is designed to deliver content with no regard for existing television programming. But there are plenty of other differentiators and I wanted… Read more

Has your Logitech Revue been delayed?

Logitech sent out some emails last night with the subject, “Your Logitech Revue pre order. We appreciate your patience.” Apparently, a good chunk of you haven’t received your box just yet, and well…that’s not good. Especially if you pre-ordered and paid for next-day shipping. I’m not sure what Logitech has in mind for affected customers, but they’re… Read more

Controlling Google TV, Logitech Revue with Harmony Android app

The keyboard that comes bundled with Logitech’s Goggle TV box, the Revue (unboxing and early look) is functional and fairly user friendly, but it is a bit bulky und unwieldy for television interaction from a reclining position or in bed. So it’s nice that Logitech has released a free Harmony remote app in the Android Market (screen grabs below video)…. Read more

Sony Google TV booted into recovery mode; root not far behind?

While Google TV has just hit a slight snag, it’s becoming more attractive for geeks. A member of AndroidForums has gained access to Recovery Mode on Sony’s Internet TV. Here’s his video walkthrough on doing the same: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L21guovXDsc I can’t help but think that the Android mod community will convert this into an opportunity… Read more

ABC, CBS, and NBC block Google TV from browsing web video

Google TV’s one big, lofty goal of a main objective is to blur and even erase the line between web content and broadcast television. If you’re a TV network, that’s the scariest proposition you’ve ever heard. Networks bank on the value customers place on always-on, professionally produced, easily-accessible content. But if CBS becomes just another “video… Read more

Logitech Revue unboxing and early look

I hate to drop 20-plus minutes of video on you for what I intended to be a simple unboxing and hands-on, as it were, but there’s a lot going on with Logitech’s (and my) entry into the world of Google TV. I have to admit that I wasn’t sure where to start or how to organize my coverage of the many features, which are still very new to me. But rest assured,… Read more

Logitech Revue lands solid shipping date

As I mentioned yesterday, BestBuy claims that if you pre-order a Logitech Revue through their website, you’ll receive your product sometime from the 20-27th. While that date looks be holding true, it still doesn’t account for those of you who pre-ordered via Logitech.com. Well according to some e-mail alerts being sent out today, the 21st of this month… Read more

Leak: Logitech Revue coming 09/29 for $299, $179 from Dish

Dish Network has been the partner to watch in Google’s ramp-up to the launch of their living room break-out product, Google TV. And after including six months of free Dish Network service to Zeitgeist attendees (along with everything else one would need to experience the product), it’s not really a surprize to hear that Dish–who asked customers what they… Read more

Logitech continues pleasantly bizarre Revue spots

We caught a glimpse of Logitech’s first commercial for their Google TV set-top box last month, and people generally discussed the creepiness of it, whether or not the television was committing suicide, and how ironic it is that a Google-related product be represented by a giant eye coming from a medium we traditionally consider to be on a one-way street,… Read more
