Google and Intel Join Forces on Video Search Technology




From the press release

Intel Corporation and Google today announced plans to work together in bringing Google Video to the new Intel® Viiv™ technology platform. This planned collaboration is intended to give consumers an easy way to search, manage, and consume the huge amount of video information available on the Internet from the comfort of their couch.

“Google looks forward to working with Intel to bring Google Video to consumers who use the new Intel Viiv platform,” said Susan Wojcicki, vice president for product management at Google. “Both companies believe open standards are critical to provide rapid growth in digital entertainment. Our goal is to work closely with Intel to make Google Video content available on new digital devices in the home.”

I wonder if there will be an option to allow you “convenient” access to Google’s new pay-per-video service.
