Google has plans for TV, too?

Google TV

So what we know is that they were previously in talks with TiVo, and that they recently launched that whole Google Video initiative, which put closed-captioning data and video clips on tap for users. Oh, and that whole buying lots of dark fiber and unused bandwidth thing they've got going on is also garnering a lot of multimedia app speculation. So what's Goog do to fan the flames? Nothing less than post an ad (which has since been removed) on their site looking for a Google TV Project Manager. This is someone who was supposed to be well versed in "the intersection of Internet and Television technologies, Video-On-Demand, Personal Video Recorders and emergence of next generation set-top-boxes with IP connectivity." Google looking for (more) people with IPTV experience? We'll let you do the arithmetic.
