    Google TV provides a new UI to your existing Cable or Satellite box. If gives you the ability to do an instant search, just like you would if you went to Google.com. The benefit is that it adds the ability to search both your local providers channel listings, as well as the web for all content associated with your search criteria. Google TV will also have the ability to run customized apps for viewing streaming video as well as other apps that can be developed by anyone.

    We may see the integration of some of Logitech and Sony's gaming control pads. It would be awesome to be able to connect a PS3 controller for use with Android games.

    There is a rumor that Sony will be integrating its PSP Go and Android together in a new phone. With that rumor and what we know about their partnership with Google on the Google TV the PS3 controller may not be to far fetched.

    Thinking like that makes me start to wonder if I should wait on a Sony Blu Ray Google TV combo instead of the Logitech Revue.
