What Is Google’s “Smart TV”?
Google’s “Smart TV” debuts today at some techie conference in San Francisco. This is all good and well, but I’m sure many of you are wondering, “What the hell is that!?” The Sony device uses Intel Corp chips and Google software and is a response to a big ‘ol drop in TV sales. The deets are still fuzzy because tech guys can be very secretive when it comes to their new inventions but, from what I can tell, the coolest thing about Google’s “Smart TV” is that it allows you to have internet access on your television. The set will include a TV and Blu-ray DVD player but will have tons of web content. It will also have a keyboard that functions as a remote control. According to Bloomberg, “Internet access will be integrated with advanced television guides, personal content libraries and search.” This television-internet software isn’t available to consumers yet but, we wanna know, will you buy it when it is?
