Google's Multi-Media Madness

Try Google TV, and Google Audio on for size.

These nascent features were the subject of several recent Google want ads, each containing hints of Google on-demand video, radio and games to come.

Google's got at least three Google TV-related job openings: a product manager, and two television technology engineers, one based in Mountain View, Calif., the other in Kirkland, Wash. There's also two other Google Audio (read Google Radio) jobs open.

Google's been desperate to make features compatible with a lot more devices than personal computers, a way to expand the reach of its advertisers, and rake in more money. It seems Google's off to a start, but still seems way behind competitors Microsoft and Yahoo in this regard. |
