While there still isn’t any official confirmation on how the device will work, details of the upcoming Google set top box have apparently started to surface on the Internet. Word going around is that it will be built by Sony and Intel, be powered by Google’s Android OS, as well as use Chrome as a browser. Aside from that, it seems that this box will not aim to replace your current set top box, rather it will integrate alongside it, effectively daisy-chaining your current set to box, to Google’s box, and also to your TV. With that in place, Google’s box will collect data from your current set top box, and offer its content to you in an entirely new user interface, and will also offer searching and browsing channels, as well as other web-centric content. Would you like to have another Google device in your home, or do you think that Google is beginning to take over the world (more than it already has)?
