Google TV: A Clicker Killer?

Google announced their TV search appliance the other day. Most everyone knows about this news by now, but if you haven't, see the video below and read all the stories (everyone) on Techmeme.

Of course, this seems to be a version of Clicker, a TV search engine run by Jim Lanzone. Clicker is very cool, but can it stand up to Google, even if Google TV has less features and a poorer user interface? I suspect not. Honestly, I have not done much research on both being that I have been offline for two days and still digging out. But you can read all the news above and see a short summary of Google TV in the video above.

Some fun quotes from the forum threads at WebmasterWorld, Google Blogoscoped Forums and DigitalPoint Forums:

this looks amazing, yet scary at the same time

Google TV socks :-)

So far TV's an the internet haven't really mixed well. I think there are some great benefits but for the most part I like my Internet separate from my TV.

And the best:

"Developers can start optimizing their websites for Google TV today." Sigh, here we go again.
