Just Announced: Google TV

Come one, come all, here comes Google's answer to the living room. Aptly named Google TV, the geeks at Mountain View have just recently launched their new portal with videos, demos and FAQs forging the way for this autumn season's cluster of new television consumption devices. Featuring Search, Google Chrome and Adobe Flash 10.1, apps like Netflix, Twitter, CNBC, Pandora, NBA Game Time, Amazon's VOD and Gallery and even HBO, Google aggressively catapulting themselves as the God box for your living room. Eclipsing what Apple TV represents, Google is launching with just about every other company providing them content and support. Other features include, using your mobile telephone as a remote, "Fling" (the ability to send the website or show you are watching on your mobile phone with a press of a button), YouTube in full screen HD, watch and simultaneously browse and even create TV Playlists!

With my recent crashing of our Samsung UN46C8000 46-Inch 1080p 3D 240 Hz LED HDTV, I'm all for letting Google into my living room and letting the programmers do their thing. Now only if I can find a way of wiping the Samsung OS off of my television and loading up some Google TV goodness...there's an idea! Get it this fall on a Sony Internet equipped television or the new Internet Top Box by Logitech dubbed as Revue. Check out the video below!
