Android-TV Link May Be On The Way

Rumor has it that Google’s working on something known as “Google TV” – a product that’ll act as a set-top box, delivering Internet content straight to the largest screen in the house.  And rumor has it that Google TV will be Android-based, too, meaning developers may want to prepare for it.

Dan Sung listed 18 different ideas for apps today, and some of them sound pretty great.  “Ad blocker” is an obvious – and invaluable – suggestion, of course.  An IMDB app with facial recognition software would be fantastic, too.

Other proposed apps include something that could split the screen between any number of channels and something that would level out volume differences.

So even if it’s a little early to start working on stuff, at least consider coming up with some goals and concepts.  Google TV could be a very big deal.
