Multimedia, AV Logitech just presented their first GoogleTV product, the Revue. I've written many times about how the TV is the next big device to get revolutionized. Unfortunately, I personally just don't think that the Revue is "it." Warning: an impulsive, reactionary, but also honest rant is following.

It’s all about the money. It’s companies doing backroom deals with each other trying to wrangle the biggest slice of the pie and gain a monopoly. Why did Google allow Logitech’s proprietary and useless webcam software? Money. Why did they omit basic TV features? Money. (cable networks fearing change)

None of the companies involved here are in it to give you a good TV experience. They are in it to extract as much cash from you, and each other. There is simply no changing this.

Some big companies are going to have to fold before you get the perfect TV experience you want.
