Google TV: silent but not forgotten at I/O 2013 | The Verge (click for full article) by David Pierce - May 17, 2013 "It's easy to miss the Google TV booth here at I/O 2013, hidden in the corner of the third floor. That may not be an accident: there was apparently no room in the company's sprawling three-and-a-half-hour keynote to mention Google TV, either, just a short blog post hours later announcing that it now runs the latest version of Android. So in a sea of new products, services, and pitches to developers, we couldn't help but wonder: is TV dead? Google has killed plenty of products with many more fans than Google TV - will it go the way of Reader? GOOGLE TV IS ANDROID, AND ANDROID IS GOOGLE TV We've been told that Google TV isn't going away - the company can't give up, because the market and opportunity are too large. But Google's changing its approach to your living room, beginning with the update this week. Google TV is now based on Android 4.2.2, the latest version of the operating system, and offers developers much more - when Google TV first started three years ago, the team forked Android to build the OS, and a source described this update as "bending the fork back in." Google TV is Android, and Android is Google TV - or it will be, whenever the update becomes available. It's what Google TV should have been from day one."
