Before we all jump up and down for joy over Google TV, let's take a quick reality check here.
There is to bringing true IPTV into the home than having a Google browser and a keyboard. There's a ton of plumbing and smarts that goes into the middleware that runs the home network and provides for compelling features such as Whole Home DVR.
I don't want to speculate on what's coming, and I'm all for innovation, but before you call your service provider to cancel your satellite, cable or telephony based TV service, stand by until we see what OEMs will be bringing into the home and if the same or better experience of true HD, 5.1 audio and true wired home networking has been thought through and brought to market.
