Google TV was, well… kind of a failure. It wasn’t mature, it wasn’t finished, and it didn’t have what Android is famous for: Openness and apps from the Android Market. The concept was great, the execution just wasn’t what it should have been. Today, the …
Streaming Media West 2011, an annual event designed to cover the entire online video ecosystem is just a few short weeks away. Why should you care? Chances are pretty good that this is where we might get our first glimpses of the new Google TV …
Google TV’s Director of Content, Donagh O’Malley, was speaking at a Q&A this week where he indicated that the long-awaited Honeycomb update would be out in a month’s time. Participating as a member of a panel at the Connected TV Panel, MIPCOM 2011, O’Malley remarked that when …
Great news for Google TV owners and developers alike. Those promises of the Android Market on your Google TV have just received a huge kick towards reality. In preparation for a soon-to-come Honeycomb update, developers can now download a preview of the Google TV add-on …
Late last week we reported that Logitech would be dropping the price of their Google TV device, the Revue. We learned that the unit would be hitting the very attractive price of $99 in the near future as the company was hoping to jump start …

I accepted the device for what it was, despite not being able to fully enjoy it (I don’t yet have a HD cable box).
Android developers logging into the market publishing console will find another new option waiting for them. It appears Google has started adjusting the back-end in preparation for releasing the Android Market onto Google TV.

According to Armdevices.net, they have a tip that someone in Google is confirming that an ARM-powered Google TV is in the works, and will be released “soon.” Whether or not this “tip” is something that can be trusted, it would certainly be awesome to see a sub $100 ARM powered Google TV on the market. It can do nothing but help the platform spread to the masses.
As expected, Samsung has officially joined Sony and Logitech as official Google TV partners.

LG, Sharp, Toshiba, and Vizio were all set for the stage to unveil their version of Google TV at the upcoming CES show. Unfortunately, Google has pulled the plug for now. Google felt that the software was not yet ready, and instead of releasing an …
