    Briefs: Dish DVR, Geofeedia, Google TV, Groupon TV (click for article)

    "A few TV industry headlines from around the web to share...

    - Dish DVR draws fire - Customers may be impressed by Dish Network's commercial-skipping feature on the Hopper DVR, but at least two networks aren't so happy.

    - But can they stop it? - How the TV industry blew its best chance to kill Dish's ad-skipping technology. (Hint: Remember ReplayTV?)

    - Social news discovery service - New geolocation service Geofeedia helps journalists locate real-time photos, tweets where news breaks.

    - Live TV viewing down - Not like this is surprising, but live ratings are in decline as viewers' attention is diverted across a new sea of on-demand opportunities.

    - Google TV on LG - LG shows off the "best Google TV yet," according to VentureBeat, with motion-controlled "magic remote," 3D capability and dual-core CPU.

    - Groupon TV show - CBS orders a new series about twentysomethings who work at Groupon, but oddly calls the show, "Friend Me." Huh? "
