Who owns a Google TV ? Google has proven itself to be a company that knows when to cut its losses with a product, so that alone makes us feel like Google thinks the set-top box war is one that it can win. Google announced that it will be showing off more Google TV boxes at CES this year, and will be pushing functionality like voice command and the new PrimeTime guide.
Year by year Google TV looks cooler and cooler with the Android UI, but every year it has the same problem as well. There is one big problem with the idea that Google has: cable providers have absolutely no interest in supporting the product.
The new Google TVs are planned to come from traditional hardware partners LG, Visio, and Sony, as well as new partners Asus, Hisense, TCL and others. In addition to pushing the voice command features, there is also a new PrimeTime guide. Check out the Demo Below!
Google Maps for iOS has been pretty big news over the past week. It was released to critical praise, and jumped to the top spot in the iTunes App Store in just 7 hours. The release was so big that there were even reports that Apple execs were "seething" over it all. Well, they aren't likely to be too happy about this news either: Google Maps apparently saw 10 million downloads in its first 2 days on the App Store.
Jeff Huber, Google's senior VP for Geo and Commerce made the following statement :
We're excited for the positive reception of Google Maps for iPhone around the world. Congratulations to the Maps Team on the recognition for the passion and hard work they poured into it, for this release and over the last 7+ years.

Google self-driving car has fascinated our minds with its technological promise since being introduced in 2010. But yesterday, the self-driving car touched our hearts. Google posted a video of the self-driving car taking a legally blind man for a spin, showing one of the possibilities and benefits that could come from the technology.
"Where this would change my life is to give me the independence and the flexibility to go to the places I both want to go and need to go when I need to do those things," - Steve Mahan says.
The self-driving car takes Mahan to Taco Bell for a quick meal and a dry cleaner to pick up his clothes.
"Look, Ma, no hands," Mahan says. "No hands, no feet."
Google said the drive took place on a carefully programmed route and showed one of the possibilities that self-driving cars could offer.
"There is much left to design and test, but we have now safely completed more than 200,000 miles of computer-led driving, gathering great experiences and an overwhelming number of enthusiastic supporters," - Google said in the post
