    It's good to hear that the Intel 'Horizon' 4200 chips have power management. I always wished that there was a power management feature for the Revue. This information about the 4200 chips seems to indicate that the lack of a power saving mode on the Revue is a limitation of our current Intel CE4100 chips. Still I understand that the Sony Google TV devices can have their Google TV turned "off". (This is not the same thing as 'power-saving' mode). So I would assume that Logitech (could add an "off" function by software update) or an app could be designed to turn the Revue completely off?

    From the article: --- "One year later the new CE4100 chip emerged under the codename 'Sodaville', and that was launched and gained substantial traction in the industry, with nine products launched in 2010 alone featuring the processor.

    The at the end of 2010 another new chip was launched, codenamed 'Horizon' (or CE4200 for short) and offering a further eight video streams, as well as advanced power management, including the ability to hibernate and resume quickly".

    Oh, I'm not talking about something irrelevant as the cycling of an unused Mayan calendar. There's something much more tangible, like the Vampire Robot Nazi Zombies whom are plotting to take over the world. Hopefully they'll follow Google's lead and not ever meet their estimated milestones either.

    If you know what the product does and you want the things it does, I say definitely, your internet speed will be good enough for most anything Google TV offers. The product is already great and is expected to get much better in the very near future.
