Google can search billions of web pages in less than a half-second, calculate advanced mathematical problems and spy on your neighborhood via satellite. Now according to reports in The New York Timesand The Wall Street Journal, Google is partnering with Sony and Intel to develop an integrated software system that will bring web content to your television.

While a handful of televisions currently on the market-- for example, a 50-inch Samsung-- offer customers a connection to the Internet, the access is limited.This leaves this market wide open for some major changes to be made. Obviously, Google, this is your cue.

It's no surprise that the Web search giant, which provides the majority of the world's Internet searches and helps fight national cyberattacks, has stepped up and is tackling the future of your television - Google TV.
