I am not convinced many people want the full internet on their TVs. People tend to sit far away from their TVs making the experience less than ideal. Netflix, Pandora, YouTube etc for the TV I completely get (and want). Facebook, Twitter, Email I don't.
Yeah I think the portion of the population that wants to web browse on a TV is very, very small. Laptops, smartphones, and no tablets will do this infinitely better.
back in 2003 i worked at a gateway store and my manager used to hate the concept of the media center pc's we sold back then. he said the pc is not meant to be used with a tv. 7 years later, the joke's on him... it's only a matter of time before this catches on ;)
Don't think that you'll be able to connect to ANY website that you normally can on your laptop or PC. You can NOT connect to the major networks with Google TV. Most of the APPS for Google TV are for 'pay for use' related services. Go to Best Buy and TRY to connect to NBC / CBS / ABC to watch your favorite past programs. It's NOT going to happen!
