If this is the best that Google can pump out against Apple's software then I'll might as well make the funeral arrangements for a once innovating company in Mountain View Ca.
Google TV is not the same thing as having your computer (even a media center PC) hooked up to your TV. Surfing the web from the TV is just a TINY fraction of what they are building the platform for.
