    Wondering what an app built for Google TV looks like? Jinni showed out at the Cable Labs winter conference with its metadata based search engine, and now it's letting people see what it could do on a Google TV device. It works either through "semantic search" based on understanding queries like "smart love story" and also pulls up social recommendations and personalized recommendations once it's stalked gotten to know you. as is all the rage these days, it can pull in content from several online sources like Netflix, Hulu and iTunes.
