flattr this!

googletvhackerGoogle TV has been getting a bad rap recently. And it’s no wonder: there are a couple of commercial devices out by the likes of Logitech and Sony, but both of them run via different input devices. You can’t access online content such as Hulu, which was what Google had envisions. There’s only so many times I can watch that video of the guy driving his lawnmower around with monster truck wheels on YouTube. I need real content on demand.

But with a lot of perseverance, a site called GTVHacker has been able to jailbreak a Logitech Revue.¬†You can then run Android Market and watch whatever you want on the device (yes, that includes Burn Notice if you’re so inclined). Check out the clip.

You can go to 1:30 if you want to just see the Android Market. How about some big screen Angry Birds?
