Sounds great, I think they have already been integrating WiFi into TV's, but google developing a TV is sure to have an easier to use and generally better interface...i'm ready to see it in person.

There are already lots of products that do this (Boxee, MythTV, etc...) but I do hope that GoogleTV is what brings the internet/TV hybrid to all households. I look forward to putting GoogleTV on the box connected to my TV already (which is running Mythbuntu currently)

Google TV’s built-in Chrome browser can play back video content from any webpage, so most broadcasters’ catch-up services will work just fine. On the surface, Google has content licked!

Google TV is a software platform for set-top boxes and HDTV. This platform is totally based on the Android operating system and co-developed by Google and its partners and was announced on 20th May,2010. Your posted video shows that how good is this Google TV and I like its voice quality.

Well its been a few months and I'm yet to see some significant movement on Google TV. Yes the project seems to be alive, but it seems slow in picking up. Nevertheless, the idea is a good one, but it had already failed once. Having said that I know Google see things differently and innovation. Hope they'll pull this one off too!
