    Intel is betting on Tizen and Atom marriage for smart TVs by VR-Zone.com (click for full article)

    "With Intel having lost its opportunity with Google TV, the company is now re-focusing its efforts in the smart TV business towards its own Linux operating system - no not MeeGo, but rather Tizen. There will be a smart TV specific version called Tizen TV which will run on Intel's CE range of Atom processors, but the question is if it'll be good enough to compete with Google TV on ARM."

    Wow, what will this mean? I thought Intel was out of the smart TV processor business, having sold their ARM business to Marvell and with Google TV moving away from Atom processors to ARM. Maybe competition is good but I think there is enough competition and I would feel better if Intel was still working on Google TV processors.
