Google TV on it's way

Hanging with the Aussies can be quite enlightening. Google taking television to the Internet??

The Goog tube
Google's project for TV search is ultra-secretive; only a handful of broadcast executives have seen it demonstrated so far. To build the service, the company is recording live TV shows and indexing the related closed-caption text of the programming. It uses the text to identify themes, concepts and relevant keywords for video so they can be triggers for searching.

Don't go buying that $5000 big screen hi def television quite yet. On the good side, we won't even need to think about THE WB, home shopping, a billion knockoffs of the lamer Survivor series, or get pissed when the closest thing you can find to entertainment is Rosanne or 4 different stupid dating shows.

On the bad side, it's going to take college students a helluva lot longer to do their Internet research if its only done between episode reruns of 3rd Rock.

Probably is that because of the sandbox, you will either starve to death or die of thurst.

As far as Google TV, I'm guessing that once again because of their sandbox effect, the most relevent crime drama they will serve up will be Cagney and Lacey.

I've heard this rumor before.

I'm glad to see that there is more evidence for it. Access to more and more information is always a good thing. I heard about a guy who wanted to set up an internet VCR and the Television Networks sued him out of business.

I guess it helps to be google to be able to cut redistribution deals.
