VVizio has announced its Vizio Co-Star Stream Player, which incorporates Google TV by transforming any HDTV into “the ultimate smart TV.” Users can watch live TV, use apps, game with OnLive, use Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube and iHeartRadio. It also comes with a universal Bluetooth remote and a full QWERTY keyboard. It also supports 1080p Full HD and 3D with built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and a USB port. Pre-orders go live in July, and the box will run you $99.99.

    GoogleTV, huh?
    Reminds me of the scary dystopian vision where Google has a media monopoly and decides for you what you get to read/hear/watch.
    They partly do it with their search engine already (show different results to different users based on their habits)… so I wonder whether that theory will pan out after all.
