Google, Intel and Sony have teamed up to develop a platform called "Google TV" that will bring about a new way to surf the Internet via televisions, according to The New York Times . Logitech, which makes remote controls and computer devices, will reportedly develop peripherals for the platform. These will apparently include a remote with a tiny keyboard. This follows earlier reports in The Wall Street Journal that Google is testing a TV program search function with Dish Network.


Why not Chrome OS?

This doesn't make sense!

If a device must be designed and launched by Google for the TV appliance it should be Chrome OS based in my opinion, not Android based. In terms of support and security there is no discussion that Chrome OS is much better suited for this.

Android may be prettier, but it lacks the robustness built into Chrome OS.

I'm curious to hear Google's take on this.

If I was a manufacturer or an ISP, I would invest to go Chrome OS ASAP!
