    Wisdom there is already an ongoing thread about this topic in the "Off-Topic" section of the forum (see link below).

    This subject matter is not specifically about Google TV - The title of this section of the forum is "Google TV General Discussion".

    Can you please post topics that do not pertain directly to Google TV in the off-topic section. Also please take a quick look around before starting a new thread to see if a current thread already exists on the same topic. No need for multiple threads about the same subject matter.
