I was reading about the Google TV updates and the discussions are squarely at the center of what we have been examining in our course. It is about platforms and apps. It is about rethinking the TV architecture and not look at simply overlaying search on the existing architecture but to form linkages with chipset manufacturers to evolve TV from a standalone consumer electronics device to one that is at its core, a computer (just as the discussions we had on the automotive sector). It is about thinking Android as the OS for TV (just as Apple iOS driving Apple TV).
It will be interesting to see what they do with Google +
Look forward to your thoughts and discussions..
