|Now with even more games...|
Google has just acquired Motorola, which happens to be a major cable-box manufacturer. IS it possible we could see Google TV getting some widespread adoption in the cable industry? Don't hold your breath; those cable boxes are just a way for cable companies to get you to pay for their DRM and give their profits a fat boost. They're unlikely to see any benefit to Google TV... "what's in it for me?" will be the question running through their minds.
I suspect Google may take their time with the Google TV relaunch, as Apple is apparently doing. Apple may pop up with a surprise for the holidays, but it looks like their new iPhone(s) being announced in September will probably be their major product introduction for the rest of the year, aside from some new MacBook Pros.
Roku may have the 99 cent family room game market all to itself this Christmas. I wonder if they'll let other developers in on the fun?
