This GoogleTV/AppleTv will not do anything better than a PC+TV combination but seriously untill the whole/most of broadcasting content is also available through internet this is a non starter. The TV business is saddled with fierce competition and is very cost sensitive and add to that the broadband costs which are not still dirt cheap to make this a real competition to satellite TV. So I think intel may have done the right thing in keep off form this for a while.

Agree completely. Plus most of these ODM's also make other consumer products. I am willing to bet many will never touch Intel again, for tablet,set top box, phone, etc. They did way more damage than just a few google TV boxes. They said very clearly do not design with us for anything outside of PC's.

Again!! Intel has been in-and-out of digital TV business for past 1-2 decades several times. This is latest in the series of flip-flops.

Agreed! That's what the CE industry should have been doing all along, when they started to introduce Internet connected BluRay players and TVs. Whether built into TVs, or provided via a STB like a BluRay player, for some reason, the CE types preferred to give users a very limited experience. For instance, only a handful of web sites are accessible. But it's too late for that. Consumers have become too Internet savvy to be blown away by such limited options, is my contention.

Good point. Intel seems not to think long term. There seems to be no internal innovation process. They are buying all the world and they are also want to sell. If they do not have a coherent plan, they will miss opportunities. They need to have a real plan, not buy and sale hack strategy, hoping one will work.

Better luck next time on consumer electronics. Level One Infenion Digital TV Cable Modem .. Look at the IDF presentation, all about laptop, transistor, security, and power. Consumer electronics is not even in the radar....Wait till TVs start browsing web pages. ARM will expand all its dominace

All these days i heard news of Intel buying and expanding. It is hard to see that they are closing a division.But sooner or later when the DTV market picks up due to some new king of invention with a great deamnd which will be more than the demand for CPU's what Intel will do? I feel that they could have kept this division and fine tune it with minimum expenditure.

Nice post! I just wonder what will happen to the Libit engineers who were bought by TI and then by Intel. Once upon a time, they had some cable modem business, before Broadcom cornered the market on that piece of silicon. more info at: http://news.top-shoppingmall.com/

Well at least they didn't say "we don't know yet," even though that might be a more truthful answer :)

Good point. Actually that was exactly the reason why I asked Intel what happens to the cable modem technology Intel acquired from TI. Intel says that it belongs to this gateway business category, and ďwill be part of the expanded charter of the Netbook and Tablet Group under Doug Davis."

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
