In the Living Room, Still No Sign of Google

Nick Bilton, New York Times:

While the company has been successful with its mobile offering, it can’t seem to figure out how to enter the living room. Or at least find a permanent home there.

The company’s first attempt at connecting the living room to smartphones and tablets was also a flop. Its Internet-connected TV, Google TV, has struggled to sign on programming partners and to get along with hardware makers.

Insert requisite Eric Schmidt quote:

“By the summer of 2012, the majority of the televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded.”
