It looks as if Logitech will beat Sony across the Google TV finish line. Sony recently trumpeted an October 12 event in New York City, at which the company will be revealing its Google TV-powered Internet TV. But now Logitech has scheduled its own Google TV event in Manhattan event six days earlier. The invitation promises that "Google TV will be a new experience that combines TV, the entire Web, and apps--as well as a way to search across them all." The press conference will be led by Logitech's Executive VP of Products, Junien Labrousse. In other words, we should finally be getting all of the juicy details on the Logitech Revue --price, release date, specs--which was first unveiled at last May's Google I/O event. Interestingly, the invite makes reference to Logitech's "line of products for Google TV," which indicates that the Revue may come in more than one version, or that Logitech has additional Google TV products up its sleeve. Either way, this is certainly shaping up to be the biggest season for Internet TV products to date. Yet another reason you might want to wait--if only for a few weeks--before taking the plunge on a new Roku or Apple TV .
The Sonos Controller for iPad is now available as a free app in the iTunes App Store. The application allows an end user to view rooms, music, and what songs are playing, all at once, and in landscape or portrait mode. Quickly search for your favorite artists by typing on the virtual keyboard and browse through albums by pointing and flicking. “The iPad, with its large, vibrant touch screen, provides an excellent Controller user experience for music in the home,” said John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos Inc. “In keeping with the tradition of getting better over time—and, at no cost to our customers—we’re thrilled to provide another free app that makes it fun and easy to search, find and play music in any and every room of their home.” In conjunction with the new Sonos Controller for iPad, Sonos released Sonos System Software 3.3, a free one-button software update to the Sonos Multi-Room Music System. With Sonos 3.3, Sonos now supports AAC radio stations, adding to the more than 100,000 radio stations, shows, and podcasts you can stream directly on Sonos. In addition, all Sonos customers in Finland, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK now have instant access to ten million songs and all of their playlists on Spotify. Sonos Controller for iPhone 3.3 has been submitted to Apple and is pending approval.

Google TV, in tandem with the Logitech Revue and Sony's Internet TV Blu-Ray Player & Internet TV, seems to have paid attention to both the attempts at producing a viable "Internet TV" in the past as well as the functionality a HTPC brings, and have produced something that finally has lasting potential!
We live in an "always on" world where we expect our Smartphones to provide us with media content, email, social media, and any other information on demand.Â It is time we realize that we can now expect the same functionality that we get on that 4.3" screen of our Smartphone from the 46" HDTV in our living room, the laptop or all-in-one PC in the kitchen, and even from the tablet we use sitting out on the patio enjoying nature.
With James Cameron's Avatar becoming the most successful Blu-ray DVD to date,Â Blu-ray manufacturers could finally breath a sigh of relief and be confident that the once infant format has finally matured.Â Â The next dilemma facing Blu-ray is an old problem that once again reared its ugly ahead to threaten this newbie format.
