Logitech Revue Ad with a Creepy Kevin Bacon [Part 2]

Uh oh, looks like Google TV is at it again with the awesome Kevin Bacon commercial. For those that missed the first one you can read about and see it here. The Logitech Revue is the widely popular Google TV set top that has been selling quite well. Google reported around 90,000 in Q4. Back in December Google released the "Biggest Kevin Bacon Fan" video and it had a lot of mixed reviews as it was a little creepy. I liked the ending though.

Android Market coming to Google TV platform soon

Google TV hasn’t been that popular so far despite the fact that the platform has some interesting features. The main problem is that many of the major content carries like the major TV networks and Hulu have blocked Google TV users from being able to view their content on the TV. One of the things that I think could save the Google TV platform would be access to apps from the Android Market on the Google TV platform

Logitech shows off Video Calling on the Revue

Just as Logitech Revues were hitting doorsteps we get treated to video demos of some of the non-tv features of the device. In the latest video we see demo of a web cam chat from the Logitech Revue. "In case you’re wondering what video calling on your TV will really be like, we thought we’d give you a little preview. By now you’ve already heard all about the products that we announced earlier this month, including Logitech Revue with Google TV and the Logitech TV Cam accessory, so this time we want to tell you, or rather show you, more about the experience of keeping in touch with loved ones." The video brings an interesting personal take on video calling - similar how Apple advertised it's FaceTime chat service. Video chat is definitely the future of communication and video chatting directly from your TV is a big part of that. [Via Logitech]
