The Google-Yahoo war continues!

Some damn hot thing happened in todays CES at Las Vegas. Today morning Yahoo unvieled a service that will bring the power of a PC to a TV and mobile phones and today afternoon Google unvieled their new service that will replace TV with computers (Well technically speaking it already has!).

Hoping to change the way people watch television, Google Inc. today unveiled a
video service that allows users to view a limited number of network shows online
for a fee of $1.99 per episode.
The service, called Google Video Store, gives the search engine a big infusion of first-rate programming from such sources as CBS and the National Basketball Association, something the Mountain View company did not offer in its free streaming service that premiered six months ago.

Yahoo Inc., the world's largest Internet media company, is unveiling a new service that allows mobile phones and TVs to control its Web services similarly to the way computers do now.Chief Executive Terry Semel on Friday will describe the new products -- marketed under the newly established Yahoo Go brand -- in a speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the U.S. electronics industry's largest trade show.

The products include Yahoo Go Mobile and Yahoo Go TV. A third product, Yahoo Go desktop, will tie the phone and TV services back to the most common way of using Yahoo services, which far and away remains the personal computer.
