No Google PC, Think Google Video

The speculation about Google announcing a Google Cube, which has been summarily dismissed by David Krane, Google’s PR big cheese on his blog. So what will Larry Page talk about during his Friday keynote at the CES? A reliable source of mine pinged and told me that the big news would be new and improved Google video. It is some sort of a video distribution deal which has been in the works for a while. Maybe content on demand, or finally a strategy and partnership that gives direction to Google Video. Whatever it is, Googlers are pretty pumped about these recent developments. I don’t have any more details, but given the money gusher Google’s video efforts can be, I won’t be surprised. Video is the big theme at CES this year. Check out our podcast about video 2006.

Oh, and it will be announced at CeBit in Germany 3/9/06-3/14/06, not CES (as by now everyone knows)

Nope. You are all wrong. The “Google Cube/Box” is the Viseon Visiphone. http://www.viseon.com

They’ve been working with Google last year. Read about its feaures on their website and compare them with the rumored features of the Google Cube/Box. It’s a no brainer.

I thought Google dropped VLC and went with Macromedia. Maybe they might come back. http://dl.google.com/opensource/VLC/vlc-diff.txt this is very old,(ya 6 months is old) Anyway, VLC is a pretty bad player and is also under threat from those EU DCMA laws. Google must go with Real or other open RTSP implementations.
