2010: Google TV
2010 was the year that Google announced its plans to conquer an area where so many others before it had failed. That is, bring Web content (complete with Google services, naturally) to the large-screen TV in a way that preserves the best of both experiences.
Three years later, Google TV isn't dead, but it's hardly thriving, either. (Above is Google TV's 2013 iteration). Though Asus showed the Qube at CES 2013, products remain few and consumer interest is barely measurable. In fact, as CNET's Seth Rosenblatt put it, Google TV "remains one of the company's most public and ongoing failures."
