An interesting article in the Daily Telegraph today.....
Google, the internet giant, is believed to be testing a new technology which will allow consumers to search programme listings on their own television sets.
The new product also lets users find and watch YouTube video clips on their televisions. Google is understood to want use the system to target adverts specifically to television viewers. This would allow it to generate revenue which would ultimately be shared with the television provider.
This opens up another avenue for Google for example, perhaps, to people who don't have web access on a PC. Having started to copy all the world's books, how long before you can use Google on your TV to search for a book, movie or magazine article as well as a Youtube video or a TV programme?
Fascinating to see where this leads and what Apple and Microsoft are up to on this front?
