To me, a big geek, Google TV is a great value. I'm voting with my wallet...
It works so well, that I've cancelled my $65 a month AT&T Uverse TV subscription.
In 4.6 months, Google TV will be free and I'll be pocketing $65 a month.
The time I use to spend watching re-runs on Uverse, I now spend
- using the Netflix app to stream videos
- using the built-in chrome browser to surf the web, ck email, watch podcasts, watch YouTube lean-back.
- using DLNA to wirelessly listen to my music collection on my sterio, watch my pictures and videos on my big screen (from my Windows 7 VMware VM), etc.
When the Android Market to opens, I'll be downloading new apps....
But as far as a bad rating goes, I don't see where people are coming from. Maybe they're caught in some reality distortion field, or have some axe to grind.
