Meh, I’m definitely not the target audience for this. I regularly hook up my Blackbook to my TV, connect a wireless keyboard and mouse, and I’m good to go. Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, etc. are all at my fingertips. The intriguing part, though, is that some TVs are going to be built with Google TV. So essentially these TVs become internet devices without having to attach a computer. That’s a pretty neat idea, especially for the non-tech-savvy. The Google TV box, on the other hand, seems like it’s just going to be another cuboid to silently drain energy. Why buy another box when you could hook up a computer to your tv?

But then again, who knows. With Android outselling the iPhone, maybe the Google box won’t be some unremembered product like Apple TV.
