  2. Sounds like a desperate move.
  3. Not necessarily. Google's chromecast is the top electronics seller on Amazon. As an owner of Logitech Review Google TV I was a little disappointed. But that is really because I don't subscribe to cable anymore which was what the Revue was designed for.

    You would think the Google TV name would be much more appealing then the Android TV name.

    I think Google TV can easily overtake Samsung SmartHub. I have a 2011 smart TV and the smart hub is pretty bad. It has changed a ton, especially with the 2013 models, but from my experiences, a Google TV Software upgrade would make it a much better TV.

    Do you know how many times I've heard this statement(with actual links backing them up) regarding windows phone. It should be the number 1 OS by now if those are the standards.

    I think the Android name is much stronger than Google in respects to this market segment.
  8. No mater what they call it, it is very cool!
