Google’s Next Frontier: Internet TV

Just what is Google up to? Is it a search engine or is it more? It hopped onto email with Gmail [competitor: Microsoft Hotmail, Yahoo! mail], dabbled in mobile technology with Android [competitor: Apple iPhone], created a browser overnight with Chrome [competitor: Microsoft IE, Firefox], provided a new translation software with Translate [competitor: AltaVista (now Yahoo!) Babel Fish], gave away Web services with Docs [competitor: Microsoft Office], bought YouTube [competitor: none really], … and now has indicated that it wants to be a player in the Internet TV arena with the help of Sony and Intel [competitor: Apple TV].

All of this made possible by the search you and I type into its search engine every day. In-cre-di-ble!
