    I like the user interface for searching all of your programming and the internet and the ability to customize my favorite shows, music or feeds to a home screen. However, I'm not sold on the TV apps. I watch TV to watch a show or movie.....not minimize a window and bust into a tweet. These apps screens will be loaded with advertisements and be useless. If I didn't buy a 58" HDTV to watch content in a smaller screen with **** all around it! Now if Google releases it's own Apps and games, then it would be useful. We all see how successful the Blu-Ray live feature is on it's players! No one wants to tweet or browse the internet from their TV while watching something. That's why I have a laptop and iPad. Also, the AppleTV will have Apps and games on it soon. Sure, I can't search across my DirecTV programming or internet with it (I can already search all of DirecTV through it's own software and I can save my 9 favorite channels on the main screen......oh, and they even have their own apps now too), but I can still rent and watch movies, listen to internet radio, watch YouTube, browse photos, and watch any content I have on my computer or bought/rented through iTunes. I'll take iTunes over Amazon VOD and Napster any day of the week. Plus, I'm not wanting to pay $200 for Logitech's Google TV box. Google may not see a huge success for their product if the cost remains that high. It'll be a niche product just like the ATV.

    so what you're saying is that i should just ditch the dream of being a super mod and change my sn to "ridiculous"??? I don't follow Google crap, therefore I asked if anyone would know. Do you know? NO, you don't. So you'll just relish in the glory of bashing what you think is a newbie... thx bro.

    it's not about copying each other. it's about doing it better.

    and it looks like android will eventually do it better than iOS, as far as market share.

    open systems are always better than closed.. we should know this, we're a JAILBREAK community.

    Wait, why the hell can't people be satisfied with regular old fashioned plasma HD TVs. I still have a regular 100 pound low-def TV. Why would we want watered down mobile apps apps when we're at HOME anyway? Or is a laptop so 2009? In fact, I only have a 512 MB 2.8 GHz single core processor computer running Windows XP with a 20 pound monitor, and my iPod. And guess what? I'm completely happy, and never find myself saying "Man, I could use another computer, especially while I'm laying on a couch! And why the hell can't I surf the web on a huge HD screen, and have TV in picture-in-picture?!". Really? How damn lazy are we getting? I for one am happy I'm not using dial-up still, and that I have a pocket-sized computer to use high speed Internet on.

    Exactly. Why would anyone assume GoogleTV will be a success given their track record with the Nexus One? Competition is good, but GoogleTV at $299 versus $99 for ATV or Roku????

    I only haze people that ask unanswerable questions. If something isn't out yet for testing then how would anyone answer you?! Ask me if the next iPhone is hackable... Then ask me if the next PS3 is hackable... The ask me if [insert future product here] is hackable.. If ya can't think critically enough to realize the answer is who the hell would know since they aren't out yet then I worry severally about you.

    Good luck, Google. We know that you won't beat the Apple TV. Perhaps...
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    For some reason, I highly doubt a "Hacked appleTV" is goin to be just as good, or even better then Google on this time around :-/ Google got this one in the bag, "This Year"
