Google TVs Coming to a Home Near You

TechCrunch reports that Google-enabled televisions are on their way to the household.

Japanese manufacturer Matsushita (Panasonic) has signed a deal with Google that will see the company launch flat panel television sets that allow users to access YouTube and other Google services such as Picasa Web Albums.

Forum members find that this is a great move, except for one who doesn't like Google's infiltration into everyday life. (Oh well.)

But of course, there's a catch:

Like just about everything Google does, in will come the targeted advertising based on your viewing habits to keep that cash machine rolling.

Personally, I think that YouTube video needs to be improved quality-wise. Sites like MetaCafe offer video at a much higher quality. Let's do that with YouTube before bad quality videos hit the television screen.
