GTVsource.com » Google Fiber: Further Proof of Google Abandoning Google TV (click for full article) From the article: "Google Fiber has just announced its launch in Kansas City, signaling one of the biggest moves for the future of (real) high-speed and accessible internet. It is a great step forward from the Search Giant, a step that is sure to change the whole country at some point. There is a bit of a discrepancy, though, one that simply can not be ignored by Google TV fans. Mountain View has once again decided to ignore the very existence of its smart TV platform, without making a single effort to advertise it or push its success even a little. This comes a surprise, as Google fiber seems to have been every other product's time to shine. Google is boasting its amazing internet speeds and a bundled TV experience; all for a price that is hands-down unbeatable. One can get 5 Mbps internet for free (with a $300 construction fee), 1 Gbps internet for only $70 per month and 1 Gbps internet plus TV for $120 per month. The latter 2 having waived construction fees. If that wasn't enough, users are getting an Android Nexus 7 tablet and discounted prices for Samsung Chromebooks. So once again: what about Google TV? A substantial part of this services revolves around the television. And with this being a major announcement, it was Google TV's time to shine, more so than Android and Chrome OS. Why Google decided to put its smart TV platform aside continues to be a mystery and makes no sense. Even if Google didn't see it fit to offer a discount for Google TV products, they could have at least mentioned its very existence. It enhances the TV experience and is highly based on the internet. A simple mention would suffice."
