In their constant quest to conquer the Internet galaxy, the New York Times reports that Google has teamed with Intel and Sony to produce the next generation of TVs built on Android that can run applications. While some set top boxes can already stream content from the Net, they are somewhat limited. Google TV will be open source. Similar to Apple's ailing TV, you will be able to watch videos from sites like YouTube, stream on-demand channels and customize with 3rd party apps. Look for more information this summer.

RealNetworks will stop selling software that allows users to copy DVDs after several major studios took them to court. The major complaint was that consumers would buy a movie, make copies then return the movies. RealNetworks is now forced to pay $4.5 million in litigation fees to the studios and refund the purchase price to the 2,700 who bought RealDVD.
