Am I Blind, Or Am I Just Not ‘Seeing’ What’s So Great About Google TV?
You can’t see it, but I’m tapping out over here. Why? Because for the life of me I cannot understand the hype surrounding Google TV (and by extension, the Logitech Revue and other, similar items). It’s not that I’m anti-Google TV—that would be silly—it’s just that I don’t “get it,” for lack of a better phrase.
What is Google TV? That is, what is Google TV besides another potential revenue stream for Mountain View? It promises to bring the Internet to our TV, right? Watch TV shows from this service, listen to music from that—all well and good. I may not the biggest TV watcher out there (outside of soccer on the weekend), but I can see this being at least handy for some people. Anything to eliminate that cable bill, right?
