Out of Love with Google TV

"Google TV may change the boob tube forever. But does the Internet really make for must-see TV?" Kevin Sintumuang writes a love letter to his television set.

Google TV changed our relationship. No more remote control. I was searching for shows with a full-size wireless keyboard on my lap. No more switching channels when the Jets game got boring. I was on the Twitter: “I am tweeting from my Google TV!” On the Facebook: “I am updating from my Google TV!” On the YouTube—then back to the Twitter: “Google TV does not offer me any clarity to this Bieber thing.” I jumped from app to app. From website to website. I blew through an hour of “Robot Chicken” on the Adult Swim app until I realized: This is what I do at the office. This is not what I should do on my couch.
