Pete Cashmore Talks Google’s Venture into TV and VoIP on Bloomberg
Google has been very busy in the last few days. First came rumors of Google’s venture into TV space with SmartTV. Then, Google offered to acquire Global IP Solutions (GIPS), followed by a slew of announcements at the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco, the biggest being the release of an open source, royalty-free video format called WebM.
Google, Intel and Sony’s SmartTV project could reshape television as we know it, and Android-based set-top boxes could open a whole new world to developers of Android apps.
Furthermore, Google’s acquisition of VoIP-focused GIPS could mean that Google is building a Skype competitor, or at the very least bring significant improvements to its gTalk and Google Voice products.
Check out the video below to see Pete Cashmore discuss the implications of Google’s acquisition of GIPS and the development of SmartTV, as well as Foursquare’s recent deal with Starbucks.
