GoogleTV: PC In a Living Room?

leave a comment »

Intel (and Microsoft) had a dream to own the living room, it still trying to do make it real through GoogleTV. They don’t get it – take a look at the size comparison on AppleTV & the Sony Blu-ray Player with GoogleTV here! But worst of all the software on GoogleTV reminds me of a PC – a Wintel PC. I had to go through 2 reboots and 9 steps to set it up. The first reboot was for a system update – and guess what when I rebooted back – GoogleTV made me go through the first 3 steps again – including re-sizing the screen to fit my TV! Ian Betteridge says it here: “Why GoogleTV will fail, in one sentence” and attributes it to the simple design snafu of even requiring to re-size the screen. But it is insanity squared when it is not able to store it and forces you to go through again!
