This week is a big one for Google . Their 3rd I/0 conference for developers takes place on Wednesday and Thursday so there should be some interesting news coming out of San Francisco (there usually is anyway but this time we’re talking about tech stuff only).
Early reports are getting ahead of the conference about an alliance between Intel and Google to (as well as Sony) to move the Internet and TV closer together. The Financial Times reports
Google and Intel are expected to announce a significant breakthrough into consumer electronics and the broadcast industry this week with the launch of a “Smart TV” platform.
Top executives from the Silicon Valley companies are reported to be ready to reveal a deal with Sony, bringing web services to its televisions, during Google’s annual developer conference in San Francisco.
