I heard about Google TV about a year or so ago, but I didn't think it would come to fruition as soon as it has. Yesterday while I was in Best Buy, I saw they started carrying the first ever Google TV, made by Sony.
"TV, apps, search, and the web...together at last. Your TV just got smarter."
You can take the quick tour on their site: http://www.google.com/tv/ ,but the jist of it, is that everything is now "OnDemand" per se. They say "Type in what you want to watch, and we'll find it for you. Google TV lets you seamlessly search all of the content on your TV, the web, and apps – then access it with a single click. You can also easily switch between TV and the web without having to change inputs on your television."
It's different than your typical TV with apps that have come out in the last couple of years though, because it's more about the instant TV content, as well as the movies and such. No more rearranging your life to catch shows when they are scheduled to be on and searching through 500+ channels, no more paying for DVR, it is all at your finger tips, and of course apps and the web, which is always nice to have around...
