Submission + - GoogleTV uses outdated Netflix (

SchlimpyChicken writes: Audioholics did a fairly comprehensive screenshot-laden review of the Logitech Revue GoogleTV. While the review praises its tight integration with Dish and the beauty of the RF Harmony remote control integration, it does include some interesting commentary about its overcomplexity, and lack of Netflix "2.0" support among other things. It seems Google is using a the antiquated no-search interface found on older BD players and televisions instead of the advanced system being deployed in PS3 and the Xbox 360 this year. Overall, it seems most of the GoogleTV awesomeness is waiting for 2011 — the question is whether or not it came out too soon and if anyone else (Apple?) will have time to gear up major competition.
