I watched the video. Although it does not seem like a hoax to me, I am not too sure it would work. And I am a little pissed off at the idea of logging in and logging out of Gmail, given the fact that I have a slow internet connection.
gmail with it's ~250 kb footprint can be pretty tedious to load especialyl on a dialup. since thunderbird.. i don't remember when i last logged into gmail.
Whoah, hold up for a second... GoogleTV?
Yes it is a good one, it is actually so good that most people who watch it seem to believe that it is true. There is even a second video trying to prove that it isn't a hoax/joke.
But if you know a bit about how movies are being distributed over the world to all the countries, than I don't think it's hard to notice that what was shown was completely impossible in the legal aspect. Movies, series and other programs are usually licensed per country, medium and similar characteristics. That's why it isn't possible - at the moment - to provide those popular movies/series (like Prison Break which was shown in that hoax) over the internet to the whole world. Some of these movies were recently released on the internet as a test (from ABC I think), but it's only available to the country in question, it is the USA. They don't have the rights to distribute it elsewhere.
Yea thats pretty much really freakin funny. The best part are the people with comments saying that it took them like 1000 some times but they "finally" accessed it. And then the people that actually admit to loggin in and out 100's of times! Speaking of gmail, mine isn't working now it keeps giving me a server error, is anyone else having a similar problem.
Nevermind its working again. Must have been all the people logging in and out lol.
Not a hoax...
The search giant's TV land efforts have been an evolving process, which has included the debut of a prototype earlier this year to search TV programming. Google's TV efforts were a topic of discussion on several blogs that pointed to the job posting on Google's site.
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Funny video.......
Hoax, and a good one at that... obviously.
Can someone bring some evidence?
