Google TV Faces Delays Amid Poor Reviews

Google TV has just enacted its first programming cancellation. The Consumer Electronics Show next month in Las Vegas was meant to be the great coming-out party for Google's new software for televisions, which adds Web video and other computer smarts to TV sets. Although Google already has a deal with Sony for its Internet TVs, other television makers - Toshiba, LG Electronics and Sharp - were prepared to flaunt their versions of the systems. But Google has asked the TV makers to delay their introductions, according to people familiar with the company's plans, so that it can refine the software, which has received a lukewarm reception. The late request caught some of the manufacturers off guard. And it illustrates the struggles Google faces as it tries to expand into the tricky, unfamiliar realm of consumer electronics, and drum up broad interest in a Web-based TV product that consumers want. Google has a long history of putting out new products and then revising them on the fly. But in the consumer electronics market, companies place big, well-timed bets - to attract holiday buyers, say, or back-to-school shoppers.

GE study: ZigBee is better than WiFi for smart grid home communications

A recent GE study on energy efficiency and wireless communication options for smart grid devices found that ZigBee is at least two times more cost-effective and efficient than Wi-Fi. "To realize the benefits of the smart grid, it is critical that the underlying communications technology consume as little power as possible," said David Najewicz, manager, external technology programs, GE Appliances, and one of the paper's authors. "Because of the widespread use of these communication technologies at the residential level in home area networks and in smart devices, the choice of technologies is critical." GE found the two technologies that best meet the overall performance and cost requirements for home-area network communications are Wi-Fi (802.11/n) and ZigBee (802.15.4). These were evaluated under typical HAN, smart-device conditions and in a configuration representative of future mass-production implementation. On average, the ZigBee system consumed 0.39 watts over a 24-hour period, while the Wi-Fi solution consumed more than twice (2.2 times) as much, a total of 0.87 watts over the same period.
