Among the myriad wonders and glories unveiled at Google I/O this year, there were a few standouts. One of them is the highly anticipated Google TV.
Google has made it abundantly clear: choosing between the TV and the computer is a bad thing. Very bad, indeed. So, we should put them together in an intuitive way that allows us to enjoy the benefits of both without losing the benefits of either one.
According to Google’s very limited homepage for Google TV,
Google TV is a new experience made for television that combines the TV you know and love with the freedom and power of the Internet.

What a day this has been at the Google I/O!
I have run around and talked to numerous extremely interesting people, including Googlers who have hinted (nothing is official until it's announced tomorrow and, of course, they could be trying to trick us) and pretty much unofficially confirmed some very interesting details about Android 2.2, also known as Froyo.
First up, I have confirmed that JIT will definitely be included. As we already broke earlier, simple benchmarks show a 450% improvement in speed over Android 2.1 Eclair, due to JIT.
But this is just the beginning. JIT can't help performance everywhere and in some situations has no effect at all, such as I/O operations or while running native code.
