Google TV sounds like a great idea. Sure. But one large downside has just surfaced, which should surprise no one. Google is in the advertising business after all, so Google TV product manager Rishi Chandra has confirmed that ad skipping will not be allowed.
Many of us are used to skipping ads on our set-top boxes. Google really has to arrange things so that somehow the user sees this as a win. I’m not sure how they would do that. You know what would be great? Putting the ad on my remote. That way I can set it down and ignore it.
