Try Out Part Of Google TV In Your Browser Right Now
A good chunk of Google TV runs inside a browser. Besides the main menu, everything else like the search, web apps, and a lot more are simply webpages and searchÂ queues. This means that you can essentially try out the service — or integrate some of it into your HTPC — right now. This hit me shortly after I posted our full review and I managed to grab the URLs of two of Google TV’s main products: TV Search & Spotlight.
Google TV Search is the platform’s secret sauce and would beÂ crazy useful outside of the product, but alas, those URLs seem to self destruct after a few quick minutes. Still, there are no doubt smarter people than I out there, so I pasted the link below anyway, with the hope someone canÂ deconstructionÂ them and out somethingÂ useful. Just don’t bother navigating to it, it won’t show the awesome search tool.
