I honestly don’t get the big deal that comes of people being excited about Google TV. I mean, without Dish Network, who cares? Forget about any selection of local channels or anything worth watching. Not happening.

Besides being useless for most people, they are confusing to new users who think this is going to be relatively easy to jump into without much of a hassle. Wrong. With Apple TV, Roku and now, the Boxee Box being available, one has to wonder why anyone really cares?

Seems to me that Google is more bent on finding a place to push its widgets to the consumer than merely trying to provide a place for enjoying TV. At the end of the day, I think Google TV could do well. But the underlying issues of content and making the experience usable for everyone is kind of a big deal.
