    That reviewer didn't sound too impressed. I'd be curious to check one out though, it sounds like a good concept.

    From what I understand 2 of the big differences between Yahoo Connected TV and Google TV are 1) Yahoo TV has no web browser 2) With Yahoo TV the broadcasters that participate actually approve of it, sign a deal with Yahoo, and the broadcasters design their own app. It's a kind of an overlay that allows the user real time integration with the live programming. Not all the broadcasters have signed on for it yet though. I think Disney was one of the ones mentioned that signed on.
