Now TV goes the Google Way

Pretty clear from the title itself that Google has again tried to expand its already huge advertising base and what is better than to conquer your living room where you spend most of your time.

This new effort clearly has got hardware manufacturers and cable network behind it in US to get an ultimate TV experience as Google describes it.

It is really a huge effort to bring together the TV and the internet with the introduction of an amalgamated intuitive interface. The operating system is going to be android and develepors are already being urged to start creating apps for this new platform.

Really reminds me of days when I used to create pages for Microsoft TV with a browser which was a total pain eventually making me skip it altogether.

One thing worth noticing is the fact is the TTY directive in CSS media type might be making a comeback. Lets watch this space. I am quite keen and excited to work on this and if you are interested as well, let me know.

About me

My website is a way of aggregating information which is close to me such is environment, green computing, social media, ubiqitous computing, context aware systems, supply chain management, web accessibility, drupal and so on.

Some of the content is available to the public and mostly which deals with research and controversial issues are not.

Juggling between my business, research activities and volunteering campaigns, availibility of free time dictates my ability to write blogs which might not be so frequent at times but I always like to learn about new things specially in mobile computing and related technologies.

I am also very interested in enriching the lives of elderly, disabled and specially with total visual impairment by the use of pervasive computing. To me, the most effective computing is which is never seen but is around you to help you when needed.

Please feel free to comment on my blog articles and on the site.

Your feedback is very much velcome. This site is dedicated to poeple around me, specially my parents and teachers. Thank you.
