Canonical Showcasing Ubuntu TV This Week (click for full article) "On Monday Canonical said that it plans to show Ubuntu TV, an upcoming service the company defines as a "concept design" and a "vision on how TV will work in the future" at CES. The news arrives as Google and its partners begin to roll out products based on Google TV 2.0, and as Apple insiders claim that the iOS company is currently working on its own Siri-laced TV project. "With no cables, no boxes and no hassles, the goal is to un-complicate television for the average viewer while delivering to him or her all the services and options that they are becoming used to," the company said in a blog. According to the just-launched Ubuntu TV website, Canonical's upcoming platform will pack "everything you want in a TV, in a TV." Features include easy integration of broadcast, online services and applications, millions of movies and TV shows streamed on demand over the web, a modern broadcast TV experience (search, watch, record and play), and get this -- a shared-screen experience with iOS, Android and Ubuntu devices."
