Here comes Google TV

So while my buddies over a 2FatDads have been busy buying up all the local stock of AppleTV‘s for every room in their house (even ones without a TV), I’ve been patiently waiting for Google TV!

And now it’s here. Almost.

Update: Logitech has announced their set-top box, the Revue, and it’s available for pre-order!

There’s no photos yet because it’s still just vapour-ware but with Logitech and Sony on-board hopefully it won’t be long.

Of course Netflix is in on the deal – suddenly they’re not the distinguishing feature anymore but good for them – but so is the Amazon Video store (probably not for us Canucks, remains to be seen). Of course Youtube is there too, so is Android, and the obligatory Android phone App for controlling your TV.

Will this be enough to convince me to come back to the living room couch and watch TV? Who knows. Will it make the other Fat Dads jealous with their Apple TV’s? Well, maybe if Larry and Sergei put on black turtle necks for the launch.
