Here is some exciting news from Google. Want to know what it is? Well, as the technology advances there are lot of expectations, true and to keep up to those expectations internet giant Google has always delivered to their consumers. Here comes the latest gift which is the “Internet TV” which allows you to browse the net and watch the TV too at the same time, on the same set. All it requires in addition is the set-top box.
Google TV allows the user to search the internet and the TV using a single click. The services of ITV and BBC i Player can be made use of on the television screens. This service allows the user to switch between two usages of TV and the Internet without having to make too many adjustments, the switch over can be made pretty easily, that is what the company claims. The Smartphone and iphones can be made use of for the search purpose and we can even have the option of making use of the voice for the search purpose. Another added feature from the giant is that YouTube can be watched in high-definition which is really good.
In an era where a lot many things are being worked out at the same time, it becomes increasingly necessary to have such thoughts of having a gadgets or technology which can be worked out for more than one purpose. So, Google TV is one such thing. Despite the number of facilities being provided by Google it faces stiff competition from its competitors who already have got those facilities and are doing well in the market.
It may be noted that Google had earlier stated that it had no immediate plans to expand Google TV beyond US, but now it says that it will soon be launching the services in UK and the company has been seeing UK as its stronghold. So far, the company has failed to succeed in the US and one of the main reasons to be seen here is that the cost is too high, $270 and the ease with which it can be used is quite difficult, this is what people have got to say. Applee TV which costs two-third of the cost of the Google product allows its user to rent TV programs films and watch shows directly from internet on the TV. Now it’s up to the user to think which product is the smartest of the lot.
