Android Overload: Google Greenest IT Company In The World, Unity Games Coming To LG Google TV’s and More


We have another dose of the Android Overload here for you tonight. These are the stories that made it past our desks today, but for whatever reason, didn’t manage to make it onto our illustrious front page. No worries, before we toss them into the bin, we figured you let you guys give them a final once over. I found LG’s push to get Unity games up on their Google TV televisions to be most interesting. Can’t help but wonder if an Android powered gaming console could arrive sometime in the near future with Kinect like functionality.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  2. So we are to believe that Google’s massive server rooms and server houses are “green”. I read a story a while back that they use more electricity than most third world countries. That is BS! Google aint not greener than my rear end.

Last year Google invested close to a billion dollars into clean energy projects. Cisco lost its top spot in 2010 to Google this year.”  See: http://mashable.com/2011/04/12/ivanpah-google-solar-energy/ and http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/pressrel/20080819_egs.html etc etc
