Google really wants to be everywhere on the Internet. The latest news involving one of the biggest search engines is that Google teamed up with Intel and Sony to create a new set-top box for in-home streaming.
The project, called Google TV, is based on the Android operating system available on some smartphones. According to the New York Times, Google TV will let consumers browse and stream the Internet right to their televisions. The new project has been underway for several months.
The three companies all decline comment on the project. But if the rumors are right, they will face some big competitors including Cisco, Motorola, Microsoft, Apple, TiVo, Roku and Boxee. Not to mention Yahoo!, who demonstrated Widgets on the new lineup of LG HDTV’s.
