The concept of viewing content from the internet on your TV is not a new idea. HTPCs (Home Theater PCs) have been around since 1993, but have had limited success due to their cost and complexity to operate. In May of 2010 Google announced their...

Google TV is something you’ve probably heard of, but don’t know much about. It’s a rather odd combination of device and software platform that aims to bring an Android-based search and play service to your television. As with the...

Over the course of modern culture, some brand names fall into the vernacular. About to sneeze? Grab a Kleenex. Need to vacuum? Head for the Hoover. Want a soda? How about a Coke? Want to find specific content on the Internet? More often than not...

TV meets the web. That’s the basic concept of Google TV – the platform powering the seemingly trivial black box that is the Logitech Revue. T3's Jeppe Christensen has played around with the box for a few weeks and here's his...

There’s no denying that Google TV – and the Logitech Revue – has potential. Unfortunately, much of that potential is currently only part delivered on. The downside to Google TV’s all-encompassing compatibility is that it can feel...

Overall, the Revue is the box you want if you're interested in putting Google TV in your living room. It's not perfect, but it's solid, although we'd like to see the cost go down: at $300 with a complicated and lengthy setup, the Revue...

Wow, what a great keyboard! Hat’s off to Logitech: They really know how to design a keyboard. Our opinion of the rest of the Revue—Logitch’s first Google TV product—isn’t nearly as lofty. The Revue’s utility in no way...

The promise of Google TV is to deliver a "web, made for your TV". To reach the masses, the Logitech Revue is a hardware solution that lets anyone with an HDTV and an Internet connection join the party. It's even more fun if you already use Cable or...

In case it's not clear, I really do love the Logitech Revue. In fact, I loved reviewing the Logitech Revue. It's fun to use. It's a great and powerful system, and I was able to really dazzle some people with the built-in functionality it...

The Logitech Revue with Google TV is loaded with potentially game-changing functionality, but its high price, numerous caveats, and current assortment of bugs make it best-suited to early adopters--at least until promised firmware fixes become...

Google TV doesn't (yet) offer the perfect marriage between TV and the Internet. However, as a first step and initial release of the product, we like how the courtship is going. Logitech may be the first company to come to market with a Google TV...
