It’s 11/11/11, which just so happens to also be Veteran’s Day here in these United States of America, It’s also a Friday, which means most of us are ready to eject the grueling memories of another work week and enjoy the weekend.

Apple TV may be a hobby for Cupertino, but Google TV devices are a nightmare for manufacturers.
Logitech, manufacturer of the Google TV enabled Revue, recently admitted to "very modest sales" of the set top device in the last quarter.
