    Showy: Google Trademarks Term For TV Remote Control Software (click for full article)

    "Google just trademarked the brand "Showy" for TV remote control software.


    Fusible uncovered a trademark filing for Showy today after dotWeekly noticed Google had registered "GoogleShowy.com" earlier this month.


    The trademark filing says Showy is:


    Downloadable software which allows users to use their computer, tablet device, or mobile phone as a remote control to operate video display devices and televisions; and downloadable software which allows users to remotely control the content on internet-connected digital signage.


    Our guess is that this product is part of Google's big consumer electronics push, and will let users control their TV from an Android phone or tablet."

    Google Trademarks New Software Called 'Showy', Turns A Device Into A Remote Control (click for full article)

    "It's highly probable that this new software will correlate with GoogleTV, as El Goog has reportedly been working on a new remote that incorporates voice controls and cloud services, allowing Android users to control their TV by speaking to it.

    Of course, there's nothing official coming out of Google's camp at this point, so we'll just have to wait and see exactly what it plans on doing with Showy on an official level."
