    Ummm I seriously hope that we arren't stuck with Flash 10.1 when the new update comes out. I've already been shut out of several web sites because they required Flash 10.2 or higher. From the article: - "Web With Google Chrome and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 you will be able to access everything on the web. Google Chrome and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 have been featured in the device to make you browse all the websites very easily." -:(

    Worst article ever. That person hasn't got a clue what Fishtank is, nor what Google TV 2.0 brings new to the table.
