Google TV is Coming


  • Google TV is Coming

    There are a lot of streaming devices out there vying for attention. Most of them are pretty solid, and offer enough to satisfy most customers, but none of them compare to the flexibility of an HTPC. One streaming device might offer Netflix, while another doesnít. One might play MKVs while the other handles DiVX , and it all gets confusing pretty fast.

    Google is setting out to change all that with Google TV. Itís not a set-top box or even a standalone product, but it may be responsible for finally bridging the gap between internet and television.

    Think of Google TV as an Android operating system platform for streaming content. On its own, it doesnít do much, but since itís open source, it wonít be empty for long. Anyone that wants to pop their application on to Google TV Ė Netflix, Hulu, Boxee - can do so. But itís the hardware thatís really interesting.

    The first Google TV box is presumably going to be made by partners Intel and Sony. Itíll almost certainly use an Intel Atom chip, and controllers made by Logitech, the fourth partner in the group. Just because Sony makes the first box though, doesnít mean theyíll make the only one.

    Open sourced means just that. If other manufacturers want to make Google TV set-tops or bake Google TV into their televisions, Blu-ray players, game systems or receivers, they can. Google, Sony and Intel have all declined to comment, but sources say that we may start seeing devices as early as this summer.

    MTV's Big Change

    The original MTV logo and the updated version Courtesy MTVMTV is embracing change. In nearly three decades on the air, almost everything about the cable network -- from its programming, to its focus, to its place in popular culture -- has changed with the times, except for its famous tagline, "Music television." Recently, the network quietly unveiled a new logo which has dropped the tagline entirely, indicating that MTV itself is leaving its original mission of an all-music channel in the dust. The new logo is meant to put the focus on MTV's current slate of talent -- the stars ...

  • videocn d2h problem
    Hi all, I had some problems with my Videocon. my subscription was about to expire on 10th August and I recharged 250 Indian rupees and that amount was updated and I received the confirming message. But later when I'm watching the channels picture got stuck and when I change to nearby channel no image or sound was there but the small transparent logo on the bottom right. Then I switched to home channel and it was working and then I changed to the original channel I was watching and found that it was replaced with a channel that wasn't there...
