Google has partnered with Intel and Sony to develop a platform that allows TVs to browse and use Web apps for games and social networks. It will be based on the Android OS, extending the current web browsing capabilities found in most web enabled televisions. The partnership indicates a continued interest in extending web experiences off desktop screens.

This kind of cross-media browsing should present an interesting challenge for designers as they consider creating web experiences for a large screen across the living room rather the small one at the end of their fingertips.
