Multimedia, AV "Yesterday, Logitech hosted an Analyst and Investor Day and during his remarks, CEO Guerrino De Luca pulled absolutely no punches in describing the 'mistakes' the company made with its Logitech Revue Google TV set top box. Calling the company's Christmas 2010 launch 'a mistake of implementation of a gigantic nature', De Luca told investors that the company had 'brought closure to the Logitech Revue saga' by making plans to let inventory run out this quarter and that there are 'no plans to introduce another box to replace Revue'."

RE: *TV = Failed product

Member since:

Apple has failed, Google has failed... Maybe it's time to consider the idea that people are not interested in a crippled mac mini to plug in their TV. That the functionality is simply not worth the financial cost, encumbrance, and setup time.

The idea of extra TV features may have potential, though, but only if people don't buy an expensive product just for them. That is, if the features are integrated in another product or service : a good TV set, a video game console, or an ADSL plan.

Just saying...

Here's a really bad bit of news for Apple and Google.

Gamebeat: Game consoles most popular device for watching online content on a TV screen

Jobs didn't "crack TV" at all. I don't think he really ever understood it. There is a convergence device, but it's probably the same one being used to play videogames every day: the game console.
