Fox 8 News & Geek Squad – What is GoogleTV?


If you’re looking for a new HDTV this holiday season, you might want to check out SmartTVs that combine television and the web with technologies like GoogleTV. I had a chance to talk to Cleveland’s Fox 8 News this morning about GoogleTV and why you might want it in your living room.

Organizing Your Tech (and Life) in 2010

I spoke with Bill Wills and Dave Ramos of Cleveland’s WTAM 1100 this morning about how to organize your technology in 2010 by making sure your important data is backed up.

Google Chrome Now Available for Download

Google has just released their first public beta for Google Chrome, a brand new web browser based on the Webkit codebase. Currently, only Microsoft Windows is supported with an available download, though there are links to register for updates for Linux and OS X.

Exactly how much of an impact the release of yet another web browser will have is still undetermined, but if any company can make it big, it would probably be Google.
