Google TV is one of those products that Google tends to forget about most of the year. Today, though, the platform is getting some love as Sony Google TV devices are getting a firmware update to version 2.1.1. Included in the update will be the ability play movies rented via Google Play (about time) as well as watching movies via youtube.com/movies.
Logitech's update, on the other hand, is less straightforward.

Google I/O is coming and it's time to get excited! It's like Christmas in June! It will be here in just a few
short agonizing weeks - and we need to prepare. There is background information you need to know, rumors you should have in mind, and past announcements and acquisitions that need to be remembered. Google always leaves little news breadcrumbs for those that pay attention, and I pay attention.

The official Google TV Team's Twitter revealed earlier this evening that Sony has begun releasing an update for Google TV devices. Evidently, the update includes performance enhancements for Chrome (chiefly concerning start-up time), and the ability to watch 3D Blu-ray movies.
If you're the owner of a Sony GoogleTV, the ~260MB update should be automatically rolling out any time now, but just in case yours hasn't shown up yet, you can go to System Settings > About > System Updates and pull the update manually.

Well, that was quick. Shortly after new Google TV partners were announced, LG has announced one of their Android-powered offerings: the LG Smart TV with Google TV. Details are scant at this point, as the device won't be demonstrated until CES, but we do know that it will launch in two series at some point this year. Both will feature LG's Cinema 3D displays, which do not require the expensive shuttering glasses to work, and both will come bundled with remote with the Magic Remote Qwerty - unsurprisingly, a QWERTY version of their Magic Remote.
