Google Launches TV Platform
Google came out this week with what they simply refer to as ‘Google TV.’ The search engine giant has teamed up with Intel, Sony and Logitech for the technology, which works alongside your existing cable or satellite box. The idea is to be able to pull content from the web anytime you want and watch it on your TV. Few details were released, such as when we could see it on the shelves of stores.
TweetDeck Rolls Out New Features, Supports Foursquare
TweetDeck came out with a new version this week that now supports Foursquare integration and Google Buzz (does anyone still use that?) Among the other new features is the ability to schedule tweets and filter out users and topics you don’t want to read. This last feature is particularly useful, as I’ll no longer have to hear about Justin Bieber or “The Bieb.” One flaw, though, is that tweets in custom group columns no longer show up in TweetDeck. The column sits empty with no recent tweets, even though I can see the tweets in the main column. Other users have reported this issue as well, so hopefully they come out with a patch of some sort to remedy this little problem.
See the video below for a more detailed overview.
