Hisense Pulse Review: The best Google TV set top box yet.

by: Derek RossDecember 26, 2012
Last week, Hisense, a Chinese electronics company, released their first Google TV device. The Hisense Pulse is the second Google TV set top box to come in at $99 this year. As time goes on, Google TV keeps getting better and better, slowly moving from tech gadget to something you'd want your mom to have in her living room. Google TV has improved quite a bit over the past 2 years since the launching of the Logitech Revue, the first Google TV device. Is Google TV ready for the masses? I believe so. Let's have a look at the Pulse, the best Google TV set top box yet.

Review: iFixit dissects $99 Google TV-powered Vizio Co-Star

by: Gary SimsAugust 24, 2012

Vizio’s exceptionally priced $99 Google TV set top box started shipping a few days ago and the iFixit team have got their hands on one. In traditional but brilliant iFixit way, the team takes apart the device bit by bit and finds out what makes this little power box tick.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Vizio Co-Star, it is a Google TV smart box which turns your TV into an Android based device and gives you easy access to all your favorite stuff via apps like Chrome and YouTube. It has Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, supports 720p, 1080i, and 1080p via its HDMI connector, has full access to Goolgle Play (including games and apps) [...]

The $99 Vizio Co-Star Google TV box sells out in 12 hours

by: LucianJuly 27, 2012

The Vizio Co-Star Google TV might be the first Google TV box that’s worth buying. It now has access to the Google Play Store, which should include access to XBMC, support for OnLive gaming, and great specs for the low price of $99. Take all this into account and it’s not hard to imagine why the Vizio Co-Star sold out in just 12 hours from launch.

I can’t stress enough how important the $99 price tag is for set-top boxes or mini-consoles like the OUYA, which also uses ARM chips. It’s the sweet spot for pricing such a device, and I wish Google would’ve realized this from day one, instead of going crazy with a $300 price for the Logitech [...]

Vizio Co-Star Google TV box available for pre-order for only $99

by: LucianJuly 24, 2012

The Vizio Co-Star Google TV set top box is now available for pre-order for the low price of $99, and it will start shipping on August 14th.

The Vizio Co-Star includes two HDMI ports, one USB port, and one Ethernet jack. On the software side, you’ll of course get everything that Google TV has to offer, including Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Youtube, and, perhaps the most interesting feature for some users, OnLive gaming support.

I think the Vizio Co-Star will achieve at least reasonable success in the market, and will probably be the most successful Google TV yet. Why? Because of two main reasons: pricing and games.

First off, $99 is the sweet spot [...]

Why XBMC for Android is the single best version of XBMC

by: LucianJuly 21, 2012

Apparently, the people behind the open source XBMC media center app, want to make XBMC for Android the best XBMC app there has ever been, on any platform, since the launch of the original Xbox. In particular, they think that XBMC for Android is a very different beast from the XBMC for iOS because of the following reasons:

XBMC for Android will allow users to boot directly into XBMC XBMC for Android can launch Android apps When the launched Android app is closed, the user will be returned to XBMC When the Pivox XIOS box is turned on and begins booting, the boot screen is user changeable and can even show animations!

What this means is that if you have a cheap Android-based [...]
