I don't know if anybody ever noticed in my signature, which I now have changed I mentioned "come talk about your droid at (website).
I've pulled that part off just for a bit while I "switch homes." However needless to say I am into Android powered devices. I'm also a big fan of Apple too so if you have an iPhone I won't argue with you.
Because of my interest in this I do frequently check out stories about Android devices and what's going on in that world. Well, while reading about the the Google acquisition of Motorola Mobility I saw this:
Besides cell phones, Motorola Mobility makes cable set-top boxes, a fact that Page called "a great opportunity."Google has long been interested in bringing its search services and advertising to TV screens, but consumers have shown little interest the company's products so far. Motorola's cable box business gives Google another chance to get the software in front of viewers, but only if cable companies agree. Motorola's biggest competitor in the cable box business is Cisco Systems Inc.
My first thought was "hey, this would be great. TWC gets these babies and I'll gladly get rid of my TiVo" because I'd love to have Google TV included with the cable.
Then reality set in. Comcast uses Moto boxes to provide their customers DVR services and TWC has moved towards Cisco and Samsung. So that probably means we won't ever see that happen for us.
This is really too bad. A box that included Google TV from a cable company would be inexpensive and a big leap forward (IMHO) for cable. But I doubt if we will ever see that with TWC.
