HOW AND WHY MOBILE DEVICE BROKERS AND LIQUIDATION PROS WILL
"INTEGRATE THIS NEW TV MODEL INTO THEIR REVENUE STREAM PROTOCOLS"...i.e., How you Mobile Pros (Mobile Device Brokering)...will
benefit from the new TV by GOOGLE PLATFORM!
Saying it will “change the future of television,” Google on Thursday
rolled out Google TV — the internet giant’s venture into web-TV integration.
The application, run by Google’s Android
operating system, lets users search for content from their television, DVR and the web.
And get this:.........."I am glad
that I say, Here we are folks, the multimillion-channel TV is here,"said Google project director Rishi Chandra during
a two-hour keynote on Google’s Android operating system at the company’s annual I/O conference in San Francisco,
as sites like Google-owned YouTube have emerged as viable entertainment options, the move is a nod to a basic truth of leisure
time: The estimated 4 billion television users worldwide is still a much bigger customer base than those using the internet.
And, "There’s still
not a better medium to reach a wider and broader audience than television,” Chandra said that day.
The platform will let users
search for content, from the name of a TV show to the name of a network, in much the same way a Google search works. They’ll
get results from TV and the web and be able to watch either on their TV screen.
It also will have voice recognition, letting
users speak the name of a show or other content and have it pop up on their screens.
...And, hee said this too "I see Videos
should be consumed on the biggest, best, brightest screen in your house,” Chandra said. ................"That’s
your TV at hard work........"
Devices for Google TV will be sold at Best Buy and on the market this fall, in time for the lucrative holiday
shopping season. No prices were announced on Thursday.
The system will allow Android smartphone applications to be displayed on television
screens and such integration as being able to watch a show on TV and a Twitter stream of people talking about that show at
the same time.
Google TV home screen will let users organize their content, like shows they’ve recorded on their DVR, and integration
will let users view photos from such sites as Flickr and Picasa on their TV screens.
In addition to Best Buy, other partners include
Sony, which will launch a line of TVs that optimize the Google service, Intel, Logitech and DISH Network — which also
will offer features specifically for Google TV.
Developing for the system will be open, a fact that let Google’s top brass
take several shots at Apple’s iPad and iPhone. They pointedly noted that Adobe’s Flash media player will be integrated
into the system’s Web browser.
Adobe and Apple have been feuding publicly, and loudly, over Apple’s refusal to run Flash on its products.
to be part of the Google TV initiative with other industry leaders who share a common vision of enabling access to the best
web experiences possible,” said Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen, who attended the event.
Google isn’t the first company to meld
web and TV content.
In March, TiVo rolled out TiVo Premiere, which lets subscribers pull internet content, music and movies onto
their televisions more easily.
The Boxee Box, a cubelike device that shares internet content with your TV, was awarded the title of “Last
Gadget Standing” at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
And California-based company Roku also offers
a digital video player that integrates television, Web content and a video library. It retails for about $100.
The real bottom line, for those
in the Mobile Device Brokering and distribution niche mkt, is that the integration of these handhelds will ONLY continue to
exponentially grow, for the next 10 years at least...a lot of money here, too!
