Google Offers Voice Search for Google TV
As Well As GUI Enhancements and Search Functionality
by Karl Bode 10:15AM Wednesday Nov 14 2012
Though their Google TV platform isn't quite the revolution they promised, the company continues to bring improvements to the service in the hopes it someday will be. According to a Google TV blog post, the company is soon bringing voice search functionality to the platform, allowing users to simply speak "Netflix" to open that application. The company says they've also made numerous tweaks to the Movies and TV app and GUI, introducing a new "Quick Guide" they say allows users to find content easier, in addition to letting users browse content even if they're already watching another program.

Google's not being specific about a launch date for these improvements, only saying they'll be arriving to Google TV-embedded LG hardware in "the coming weeks" and other second gen Google TV platforms in the "coming months."

I don't have a cell phone, thanks for asking though.
Plus you know google likes to spy on people. That is what their whole business is built on.

Um, yeah. Where have you been?

Google has never denied having a contract with the NSA.
AT&T gave the feds wholesale access to traffic data what, ten years ago?

We live in a surveillance society.
Unfortunately, a huge majority are volunteering for it.

Its just a matter of time before those who opt-out are so conspicuous that we receive special focus.

wouldn't want them to be any different than other ISPs, would we?

I refuse to buy a cable box with a microphone in it just like I refuse to buy a cellphone where I can't remove the battery.

Re: Wire tap

If they put a screen reader in it so I can use netflix and amazon I don't care if they listen to me or not... I mean everything we do here in the u.s.a. is being recorded anyway
