Google Tablet and TV coming

ENTERTAINMENT/TECHNOLOGY - Google has announced plans to build a computer tablet (similar to the iPad, the HP Slate and other products) which will use Google’s Chrome operating system. (Google's Android OS is already the most popular SmartPhone platform.)

The Chrome operating system will also be released as an alternative to Microsoft Windows. In essence Google is taking on two titans at the same time, Apple's iPad and Microsoft's operating system at the same time... but if anyone can do it, its Google.

Google's expansion into the telecommuting business is sure to be profitable. Google is already the #1 search engine, the #1 source of streaming videos (thanks to owning YouTube) and #1 source of internet advertising.

But they're not stopping there. Google has also announced plans to bring the internet to television screens in the form of "Google TV" which be launched in 2011 and allow people to browse the internet using their television using a small device inside your new TV that essentially turns it into a web-browsing computer/TV hybrid.

Better yet the service will be free... (Free internet? Impossible!) Which begs disbelief because you have to wonder how this will become profitable and doable. We will just have to wait and see. Google is apparently working with content providers to make this Google TV a hybrid of television and the internet.

Sony said last week it has agreed to have Google TV on its new television sets and Samsung says it is also thinking of offering Google TV on new TV sets.

Meanwhile Apple is planning its own Apple TV product, but it will (surprise, surprise) only be available on Apple products. But frankly Apple products are becoming lame.

Meanwhile Google Music is also on the horizon, allowing mp3 downloads (for a price) and music sharing.
