    Google is slowly (or quickly, depending on how you look at it) taking over everything.

    I was reading somewhere that the best result from this might be improved cable TV. I don't have Google TV, but apparently the biggest issue is hardware. Motorola makes good hardware. So maybe we'll get a really improved Google TV box soon...

    Could be cool.

      Good hardware but mostly wireless. They invented the cellphone. It's more for the patents since they have to arm themselves against the recent patent buys by Apple and MSFT.
