The Daily Slash: November 26 2010

Hello all you shoppers and non-shoppers. Today, like all days surrounding a major US holiday, was a day of mixed news. Not mixed in the way of good and bad, but mixed in the way of one thing being basically nothing like the next! As I said this morning, the tablet wave is really gaining speed, quite a few of the posts today ending up being tablet or tablet related. We've got reviews of both the TV top box Logitech Revue and the Nokia C6-01 smartphone - all this and MORE on The Daily Slash!

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 26 2010

It's the start of another wild, weird, and wacky day, with news coming in from Japan that Darth Vader is acting as spokesman for Android, pointing at you, demanding that you buy! If you'd like to escape his grasp, but would still love a nice drink in a Google-positive environment, you can head over to the new Android-themed bar, also in Japan. Then you're going to see a real concentration of tablet-related news. The wave has really started to condense, everyone trying to chew off a piece of the one-sided hunk market that's very much alive and wild this holiday season. Sit home instead of battling it out in the streets, stay warm, stay full of turkey, and drink lots of cider today with SlashGear Morning Wrap-up.

The Daily Slash: October 20th 2010

Welcome to one giant jungle cat of a Daily Slash, so wild and crazy I keep calling it the daily Slasher in my head. Two giant bits of news hit at once: the Back to the Mac event and the release of Windows Phone 7 handsets (hint: we've got three of em to look at!) Plus a whole torrent of other wonderful and fabulous bits of news that'd otherwise be big but was sort of CRUSHED by those two big guns. Shall we? Let's begin!

Google TV – An Early Analysis

Google TV – An Early Analysis

I had a chance to get some hands on time with Google TV from both Sony and Logitech. Let's start off and agree that re-inventing the TV experience is a necessary but also incredibly difficult task. Necessary because with the exception of the DVR, television simply has not changed that much in the past 50 years. Yes, we got color, then we got HD; but the overall experience has not drastically changed. Re-invention is in essence what Apple desired and still desires to do, and what Google is now putting a stake in the ground in order to attempt as well.

I say re-inventing the TV experience is difficult, because it is controlled by the service providers like DirecTV, Dish, Comcast, COX, etc. These service providers offer their customers a completely closed system in which to access their content, or premium content. So for a company like Apple or Google to make inroads with a TV experience that is as tightly integrated with a customer's service provider is an uphill battle.

Why Google TV Will Be Best Without the Set-Top Box

Why Google TV Will Be Best Without the Set-Top Box

As you know from my columns here, I’m a bit of an entertainment nut. Whether it’s video games or a set-top box, I’m always looking for the latest and greatest device to satiate my desire for high-quality content that’s available whenever I call upon it.

That’s precisely why I’m so excited to get my hands on Google TV. The search giant’s platform strikes me as a product that does everything the Apple TV should have done. It allows me to search the Web, pull content from just about everywhere, and enjoy some of the apps that I currently use on my smartphone. It’s simply a full-featured product that I’m looking forward to using.
