Move On. Wireless. I connect using N and stream 1080p videos just fine.

“Worldwide three quarters of homes have a TV. Only two million are connected to the Web today, but that is expected to grow to as much as 43 million by 2018, Wilson said. In the US, TVs are viewed three times as much as PCs, he added.” Now this sounds very good, but when the price of a good big screen TV (55 to 65 inches) drop to under $1000, these figures are going to change. We still live in a digital divided computer world. How can people gain Internet access when some people cannot purchase a PC? At the college level, there are some students that do have a PC at home or Internet access because they cannot afford it. It is wonderful if you are a student and stay on campus. I heard figures like this during the “Internet Rush” years of the 1990’s. By the way, 2018 is only seven years away…think about.

There is no major difference between open and closed. It is still the same people that do it. Security is not an issue.

I worry about the security of such open systems.

@lifewingmate: Google just announced it is supporting USB 2.0 on Android but has no plans for USB 3.0.

What is the mechanism to prevent the introduction of malware into these interconnected systems? The tightly controlled (iPhone) Apple App store has the advantage that it provides a barrier of entry to malware in comparison to open systems.

The essence of the article is Google TV is now open for application developers to design, test and install their application. On the other hand what the article is describing about the TV over Internet is still very far from realization in a practical situation as the TV over Internet is inferior compared to conventional TV today. But still lets hope best for the Google TV.

Can you tell us which study "In the US, TVs are viewed three times as much as PCs" is from? In addition, will USB 3.0 play a part in this? Google TV seems to be moving in the right direction since sites such as Netflix and Hulu allow on demand TV watching. In addition, will these apps allow you to enhance your Google TV experience? Finally, there are no mentions about how the apps will be tested. Glad that developers are invited and interested, but will Google open up this opportunity for Tech Comm and other folks to take part?

No cable cos anywhere in sight. I think they still have their head in the sand about connected TV. I think they still hope to offer a walled garden.

Was there a special interest group from Cable TV service provider? Are they interested in Google TV concept? If they do, chances of Google TV becoming successful are high.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
