500°
194w ago - According to SideQuesting.com (linked above), Google TV is rumored to be heading to Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system as part of a Spring 2011 update.

Currently Google TV is already integrated into upcoming Sony Blu-ray players including the [Register or Login to view links], so although the rumor is unconfirmed thus far for PS3 it does seem to make sense.

To quote: "Sony currently provides both Netflix and Hulu Plus apps to its users, as well as Sony Pictures films over PSN. The PS3 also allows for networked streaming. It is clear that not only does Sony want the PS3 to be a gaming hub, but the premiere multimedia hub of the home as well.

GoogleTV provides the ability to view any media at any time, web or live, something that few other devices accomplish effectively and no other gaming device can do. This is a huge advantage for Sony of they can extend Android's reach.

With Google TV having the ability to include apps, this provides a quicker method of acquiring many of the same apps that the Xbox has (Last.fm, Twitter, Facebook) and more. The PS3 can more accurately become an "everything to everyone" product if it has access to all of the...
 

Google to Build Ultra-fast Broadband Networks in Select Areas

650°
232w ago - Today the AP reports that Google is planning to build ultra-fast broadband networks in select areas.

Feeling lucky? Apparently Google will seek input from communities that might be interested in getting one of its test networks which will deliver speeds of 1 gigabit per second.

That would be roughly 50 to 300 times faster than the DSL, cable and fiber-optic networks that connect most U.S. homes to the Internet today, at speeds typically ranging from 3 megabits to 20 megabits per second.

To quote: Google envisions systems that will enable consumers to download a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes; allow rural health clinics to send 3-D medical images over the Internet; and let students collaborate with classmates around the world while watching live 3-D video of a university lecture.

"Our goal is to trial new technologies and figure out what kinds of applications you can send over these big pipes," said Richard Whitt, Google's Washington-based counsel for telecommunications and media. "There may be next-generation applications that are being held back right now."

Google said it is prepared to sell access directly to consumers at prices that are competitive with existing broadband services, but would consider letting Internet service...
 

Rumor: The First Real Screenshots of Google's Chrome OS?

550°
257w ago - These alleged screenshots of Google's Chrome OS –with a Mac OS X-inspired dock– may be real, apparently from an unconfirmed source sent to Mashable.com (linked above) from Development BETA 0.1.15.

To quote: An unfamiliar source sent us these, which claim to be screenshots of the upcoming Google Chrome OS.

Are they real? Who knows, but we'll confess we kinda like them - super simple for a web-centric experience.

They'll probably turn out to be mockups from a kid in Delaware. Or pinched from an Engadget story published years ago. Or something.

We don't care... they're cool, and we're only gonna keep prodding Google (Google) until we get to see the real thing.
 

Google Breaks the Internet: This site may harm your computer

350°
286w ago - Update: It seems fixed now, the "This site may harm your computer." appears to be removed from the majority of Web sites.

Well at 1:55am on a Sunday in Australia, I went on google to search my local newspapers Web site, strangely I noticed that the site had been listed as harmful.

Scrolling down the page revealed that every other page was also listed as harmful. It came to me that the ultimate test to see if this was correct was to search google in google and just as I suspected, it was blacklisted as HARMFUL.

I found this hilarious so I took a screen capture in case Google tried to cover it up quickly. Its not often a large company such as google makes such as LARGE mistake.

This capture is attached to this article. Hope you enjoy!
