Google Inc. handles my Internet searches. It manages my e-mail. It’s even taking over my telephone. But I’m not putting Google in charge of my TV.
Not for $299, anyway. Cut the price, and I will think about it. But for now, the first Google TV set-top box, the Logitech Revue, delivers too little value for the money.
Which isn’t to say it’s a bad product. Indeed, Google’s long-awaited effort to meld TV and the Internet is much more potent than the new $99 Apple TV. Too bad the Revue is saddled with severe limitations.
