…based on android. the idea is that people can access the internet through their tv, so they can watch youtube or update facebook while every now and then doing a google search and click on ads and make google rich.
don’t have a lot to say about this, except that it seems like a very good idea. personally, i stopped watching tv on a tv when they shut down the analogue signal in the us last fall (my landlord didn’t have a digital decoder and i didn’t want to buy one), and i haven’t missed it since. once you get into the habit of watching your favourite shows whenever you want, you can never go back. so yeah, based on a scientific poll of myself and my girlfriend, i am certain that this will be a success!
(and yes, if google can use this to break into the tv advertising market they are going to make so much money that they can buy you and your grandmother and pay you to watch their ads all day long.)
