It is going to take extra 5 years for this technology to sync. It is on the way but none of the players will solve it. Someone not there is the owner of the idea. These ideas are old tied processes that never worked

People have been trying to marry the Internet and TV for years, since Web TV Networks. It ain't easy but we'll get there eventually--but not via the walled garden of cable cos' tru2way.

I see TV's getting more and more smarts. The PS3 changed the game a bit by providing so much horsepower to your TV display and focussing more on media capabilities. They have really done a pretty poor job leveraging it but it's getting better. I really don't see a need for yet another device for TV.

tru2way is a cable industry thing and it is very much alive. But that is a completely different ecosystem beyond things like Google TV and Apple TV.

Google is having a significant impact on the tech industry by becoming a software supplier and challenging Apple, Microsoft and others in this domain. It is good to see a healthy level of competition exists in the tech industry. Another interesting breaking story on CNN and other news networks is Facebook has been caught privately hiring pr firms (Burson-Marsteller, etc.) to raise privacy concerns about how Google and other companies handle user data with journalists. So Facebook is the funding behind most of the questions being raised about smart phone user privacy in the media recently and their intent was not altruistic.

This is very interesting. This has been brewing since about 5 or more years ago. But I think Google has all what it takes now to enable this! I think the libraries will be on Java language. But... does this mean that the TV's will have to be connected to the internet through DSL and RJ-45 connectors? How about bi-directional cable? what ever happened to that? Like thru2way?
