Aside from complementary massages and gourmet lunches, another perk of working at Google appears to be an abundant supply of powerful drugs, with Chairman Eric Schmidt proclaiming his floundering Google TV will be built into most TVs next summer. Bullshit.
Schmidt's claim, that "By the summer of 2012, the majority of the televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded in it," couldn't be more out of touch with reality unless he was also promising to come to your home and watch the TV with you too.
To begin, Google TV itself is a questionable product that's broadly failed. Logitech, Google's champion hardware partner, dropped its rifle and ran the other way screaming after the Revue bombed. Software updates that'll beef up Google TV are on the way, but the system is starting at a huge disadvantage—most people have either been burned by Google TV, or have forgotten about it.
