The Revue, Logitech's Google TV black box, never really took off. Unsurprising, since Google TV never took off either. So a humbled Logitech just slashed the price down from the original $299 to just $99. That hurts.
It seems like everyone wants to get into your living room this year. Most companies are invading with media streamers, but Google wants to sneak an actual computer in there. It's an Android for your TV.
The early word on Google TV is that it's kinda messy! So's the inside of the Logitech Revue, which is basically a netbook on a motherboard, complete with a 1.2GHz Atom processor.
You know those commercials that leave you totally mystified, like "how did this possibly get created?" This Logitech Revue promo video, in which a hairy-legged, Peeping Tom TV set creeps up on a teenage girl in bed, is like that.
Logitech's Revue, their set-top-box Google TV machine, just hit the FCC and got all of its parts documented. That it's powered by a 1.2GHz Intel Atom processor and 4GB RAM isn't surprising, but the fact that it has a built-in fan is.
We've known that the Google TV Box with its Harmony-remote-like superpowers will be coming soon, but until this photo slipped out we didn't known its real name. It'll be called the Logitech Revue with Google TV. Quite a mouthfull. [Engadget]
