    With Google's IO conference coming very soon, many folks in the industry are speculating what sort of announcements Google will make regarding their products. Most agree that, more than likely, Android will dominate leaving Google TV and Chrome OS with very little interesting new developments. In fact, on ChromeSpot, they went to the trouble of listing, and it turns out the speculation was right on the money. Here's what ChromeSpot had to say regarding the schedule for the Google IO Event,
    Talk about being left behind sucking wind. You would think that Google doesn't care about these products, but in reality they are still working hard to make them successful. Even though right now they are 'taking a back seat' to Android, many analysts believe that they both just need a shot of marketing attention from an actual Android Market. And, even though Google TV and Chrome OS aren't getting a ton of attention at IO, you can bet that Google is working on multiple ways to make these competitive in the market when the timing is right. After-all, they have poured millions into these projects, and they have huge upward potential for the future. In fact, eventually we will probably see these products begin to merge together more and more. What do you guys think?

    I wnat a Google TV box from Logitech. But their box is just too expensive. Its $300 and the AppleTV box is $100. They offer nearly the same stuff. I coudl easily survive on HuluPlus for $8 a month. But right now, I'm under contract with Dish Network for at least another year and that is a hold for me. Also, I'm a big Hockey fan and can't go without my games. NHL Gamecenter Live woudl be nice and there are devices that offer it along with HuluPlus, but they blackout all the local games here. So its useless to me. If I could pay for hockey games without blackouts, I'd definietly get a GoogleTV box with huluplus and a hockey package.

    a year or two ago google purchased a small startup company (who's name i cant remember) who had created the virtual 'desk' desktop, 3d if u will. it included a pinboard no the back of the desk and pinboard on the side upon which you could 'pin' notes, pictures and calendars. the desk itself would feature the stack option as if you would stack a number of actual 35mm photo's on a desk, same with documents and folders. with a swipe of the mouse you could fan these out and view any of them.....

    i have been waiting for google to incorporate this feature/design into their chrome or some OS.....gigngerbread has some of it in it.......so i think they have plenty of trick up their sleeve, android has taken front stage for the moment

    ChromeOS isn't exciting to me~ I honestly am not sure why Google has chosen to have ChromeOS represent their desktop front when Android is such an exciting unix platform.

    Something akin to AndroidPC, with the kind of awesomeness that's tied to Android, but on a desktop platform would be ridiculously exciting. Especially with Market support~ and Google integration in a light OS. It also has the marketing bump and labeling of Android, which is on the minds of more of the public than "ChromeOS".
