As we search for more ways to add functionality to our lives, Google seems to be leading the charge at how to innovate and have enhancements added to your life that you didn’t even know you needed.  Enter Google Leanback.  Google Leanback is a fun and interesting way to search YouTube videos where it feels more like channel surfing on the TV by giving you a feed (pretty much a playlist).  Being fun on your computer is one thing, but if you have internet on your TV, then it takes this to a whole new level.  Sony just released the first TV’s that come with Google TV, including leanback.  Is this just lazy of people?  Is this a service that people want or will even use? What could be a benefit or drawback of a service like this? Explain your answer.

    i think it its a pretty cool idea. its cool because you can look up anything i want with Google TV. but it can be awhile to find the right video and cant find it. but you can watch whatever you want to watch. so i think this google tv is cool i would get it.

    No,cause it is much faster to find a show you want to see. Yes cause everyone will use this.Cause it is a smarter way. the benefit is that everyone will get this cause it is smart.

    No i don’t think this is lazy of people because it is just as bad as being on a computer. Yes people will use this because now they can watch tv and get on the web with out even getting out there chair. A draw back of this might be that it could be slow.

    It really depends if your always watching this new TV then I considerate lazy but if you watch it sometimes and still get up and do stuff then you should be okay cause everyone needs some technology sometimes, its really fun!

    I think its the best idea they came out with yet because its cool how you can sit on your couch and be on the computer. and its just like having a huge computer screen. also i think its gonna bring the sells of computers to decrease. Because thats what computers are for and now the new google tv is gonna blow up and everybodys gonna like it better . but after awhile things get old so people will be running back to the computer or if they make something new they will run to that .

    I think its a pretty good idea. It might be more expensive, but when you have Internet access, you can watch whatever you want whenever you want. Plus, you get a bigger screen, so its much easier to see than your computer when you’re trying to watch videos on YouTube. Its also more convenient because you don’t have to wait as long for the video to load. It gets really annoying when you wait 10 minutes and then find out that the video was removed from YouTube (that was a personal experience). I know there are times when I feel like grabbing my laptop and smashing it on a large rock. We’ve all been there, so its nice that Google is trying to help with that. I personally don’t think that’s lazy. I think it will improve our entertainment experience. I think many people will want to buy it right away, but others might be unsure if it will be any better than a regular TV. When they hear that other people like it, they’ll probably also make the switch. ♥♥♥~TQ

    In someways it is being lazy but like in some cases if you are injured like a broken leg you might not be able to get to the computer in that case it is not being lazy

    Yes because people act like they cant walk to their computers. I mean getting on the computers isnt as lazy as just sitting around. Also people can get more excersize by just walking to their computers.

    I think people will become more lazy. The benefits of this is that people don’t have to get up to watch music videos. Another benefit is that it will make a lot of money. A drawback is people will become more lazy. Another drawback is that if it sells well then laptops and other tv’s won’t be bought as much.

    i think that it is lazy of people but that is a good way to get Google and i think that it is good because this saves gas and time etc and this is the future from the past we do have these things to worry about so i do think that this is lazy but this has a good and a bad side

    excersize plays a very important roll in our daily lives but with some people they think they don’t need it, but every one should excersize for at least an hour every day!

    I MEAN THIS PRETTY COOL. BUT I SEE IT AS A WASTE OF TIME. TO SOME PEOPLE THEY MIGHT HAVE A BUSY LIFE, AND THEY DON’T HAVE TIME TO WATCH THE SHOWS THEY WANT THIS WOULD BE PERFECT. BUT IF YOUR ON A LOW BUDGET THEN JUST STICK TO HAVING CABLE AND INTERNET. EITHER WAY IT JUST A WAY FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT. I DON’T THINK THIS IS WELL, LAZY OF PEOPLE, BUT WE LIFE IN A TIME OF TECHNOLOGY AND WE SHOULD LIFE UP TO IT.

    i agree its for lazy people. its bad and good way to get google and i think that its good cause its on your tv so you dont have to go to your computer or get up and get your laptop. but i bet theres a couple catches like you need internet connection. heres a big catch that most people dont like the cost. and i bet its huge.

    i think this is pretty cool. but for some people they just don’t have the time to watch videos on youtube. so it really doesn’t work.. but for some people they might want to buy it. i think it wont sell that great though

    I mean it actually depends on the standing point of your situation. I think that it’s a little bit of both lazy and just making things more convenient for yourself. I also think the Google Leanback is better than trying to keep searching for just one channel or movie you like. Because that could take forever. Then again, that is just my opinion.

    With Google lean-back you can watch what everybody is doing on their face-book. I think that’s spying on people. How can you watch anything on u-tube and not even touch a mouse?

    this is really cool. i think i would have to get both of these. i mean i always wanna watch somethen but something else is always on. but with google tv i dont have to wait to watch it i just type it in and there i go. i would like to get the youtube thing to. cuz i always forget what youtube videos i like and witht that dont have to forget becouse all my favorite videos are there.

    I don’t see anything lazy about it. I think it is fun. It’s just technology improving. It’s basically like it being on a computer just on a t.v. I like the idea. That is my opinion.

    Honestly i don’t think that it is lazy. Because its cool new way to use something. People that use youtube constantly would like this. And it would benefit and grow more useful over time because of it being just another network type thing or something just like netflix on tv. Its not lazy its more fun and less time consuming.
