Google TV: is it real?



This is a video of a beta feature from google... or perhaps an elaborate mockup of a feature that google should provide...



Here is commentary:

Is it real? Apparently not, but it points to a big potential change from traditional broadcast to internet delivery in the next few years. (Ref. tv.peekvid.com).

Update: I just saw this video from the same source:

It's hilarious. These videos are from an art studio called Fatal Farm, which is in the business of creating mock commercials and in this case semi-plausible technical hoaxes...
