Google TV hasn't been in the wild for long, but major content providers like ABC, CBS, and NBC are already blocking their content from Google's awesome little TV companion. This, as you might have guessed, sucks.

The Logitech Revue site has gone live, and it includes all the details on the Google TV-powered box we've already heard so much about. You won't find much information on Google TV, but what you will find is plenty of information on the Revue itself, as well as its many accessories.

Logitech has released its first commercials for the Revue, the first Google TV box to hit the market. The commercials are so weird on so many levels - it looks like Logitech is going to be using a giant TV with legs as the mascot. Not creepy enough?

During Google I/O, Google announced Google TV. Yesterday, the Logitech Revue – the first Google TV box – passed FCC approval, and as usual, the FCC was kind enough to provide some pictures of the unit.
The unit sports some pretty decent specs:
- Android 2.1
- 1.2 Ghz Atom CPU
- 4 GB Memory
- 2x HDMI 1.3
- 2x USB
- S/PDIF out
- Ethernet (presumably 10/100/1000)
- IR headers
The Revue plays nice with Logitech Harmony remotes and acts as a WiFi access point for your entertainment devices. Read More
