Comments on news posted 2012-11-16 12:25:44: In addition to the suite of changes coming to Google TV, Google now says that GoogleTV embedded LG televisions will also come with embedded OnLive gaming functionality. ..
As pointed out its better to put these functions in a disposable set top box , DVD player, or game console. These are easy to change out at much lower cost as opposed to changing out lets say a 60'' TV along with the labor of physicly removing the old one and installing the new one.
Plus, if you have to get a new TV at some point, all your settings and preferences will be totally gone - if you just had another box (Roku, Google TV, Apple TV), it wouldn't matter how many TVs you had to switch all your 'smart TV' stuff would still be there.
