Google Home Entertainment

“So it’s 2010. Google owns the telecom market. They’ve become the primary media source. They own the virtual desktop market. Where else could they be? Home entertainment of course.

Google currently sells a network search appliance to companies large enough to have network equipment, which allows those firms to use Google technology to search their Intranets and the like. Imagine a miniaturized version of such an appliance integrated into your home entertainment unit that recorded all the video coming down your pipeline (or, more likely, tagged the video source which it would already have indexed), thus rendering it entirely searchable with Google-patented video-recognition algorithms. The software would instantly recognize the images and environments contained in the video stream, allowing it to respond to your queries and, not surprisingly, place unobtrusive and directly pertinent advertisement nearby.”

Carnival of Web Monstrosities

Beware... the new Carnival of Web Monstrosities is in town, and it brings you a freak show of HTML!


See some current products being photoshopped into vintage settings. Like a wood-case PSP. [Via Boing Boing.]
