Google Eyes Adding its Search to TVs
Google is remaining tight lipped about a job posting seeking out a product manager for its IPTV ventures. The company has declined to give further details beyond what the job description says about the new position, although it seems to be clear that Google is interested in taking its search technology beyond the computer.
"You will provide leadership on product vision and execution of projects that enable using Google's search and advertising technologies to enhance users' television-viewing experience," the posting says of the job's responsibilities. Additionally, the product manager would look into ways that Google's search and advertising technologies could "enhance [the TV] user experience." If the listing is any clue, the Mountain View, Calif., search company is interested in the areas of video-on-demand, DVRs and IPTV set-top boxes.
