Call me crazy but I thought Google TV was going to have legs. I mean, not out of the gate but I thought that by now they would have refined the software to the point where it was something crave-worthy. And nope.
Logitech was an early manufacturer with their Logitech Revue and as we heard, they had more returns than sales early on. It cost them over $100m as they entirely failed to sell and there’s no Revue 2 in the works. Their CEO called Google TV a beta product and ultimately a mistake. The only redeeming words about Google TV are that it has a chance, in a few generations, to be a viable product.
Well if you liked the product at all you can probably get them for pretty cheap this holiday season as they sell through what they have in stock and after that Google will have to up their game before the top tier manufacturers take another shot at the beta world that is Google.
