Google on its way to dominate your living room

Sony only has about one month left to pimp out its Internet TV line as the only TV sets with Google TV built-in, as other companies are lining up to start offering the new platform for their products, and it'll start with cascading announcements at January's CES.

That's according to a report from Bloomberg, which cited "people familiar with the matter."

In addition to 3D, Internet-powered TVs are expected to be a big draw at the upcoming trade show, and there is no bigger name in that arena than Google TV.

After creating the country's most popular smartphone operating system, Google now looks to conquer the TV world as well. Google TV is unique because it gives viewers full, unfettered access to the Internet, with a special version of Google Chrome pre-installed.

It also runs every app without interrupting the TV or movie content you're watching. This is very different than similar offerings from Samsung, Sony, or others, which force apps to dominate the entire screen.

Most of these manufacturers already have their own internally-developed TV operating systems, so the fact that Google has been able to get them to accept its software is a huge boost for the search giant.

Google's share price is now at an unbelievable $594.97.
