Google TV Eleven Months Later

Eight months ago, I wrote about Google TV not being able to succeed at the $300/$400 price range.

See full article here, previous Google TV article.

Google must have read my article or maybe microeconomics started to make sense for them. The previously $300 Logitech Revue is now $100! And the previously $400 Sony Internet TV Blu-Ray Player is now $250! I officially feel "dirty" for buying Apple TV for $100. Ugh. How was I suppose to know that the Logitech Revue price was going to drop by 67%? At least I am not in the camp that bought the Logitech Revue for $300.

If you are looking for a machine to stream Netflix onto your television, buy the Google TV Logitech Revue. If you are looking for a Blu-Ray player buy the Sony Google TV model.

Since my last post about Google TV, "The Goog" has bought Motorola Mobility. Motorola Mobility not only makes phones, but have the rights to a large amount of cable and satellite boxes. So you know Google is going full steam ahead with Google TV. Google TV will not go the way of Buzz, it will be a success like Android.

The Logitech Revue even has a decent commercial.
