Google TV: everything you ever wanted to know  —  Google made some waves yesterday when it announced the new Google TV platform, backed by major players like Sony, Logitech, Intel, Dish Network, and Best Buy.  Built on Android and featuring the Chrome browser with a full version of Flash Player 10.1 …

Google TV: Who is the competition and what are they saying about it?  —  The Google TV has landed and is already sending ripples through the marketplace, but what about all the companies already blending internet and TV?  Whether they are already planning to work with the new initiative …

Alexander Vaughn / App Advice:
Leaked White iPhone HD Hits The Web?  —  There you go again, the rumor of a white iPhone HD started last week by some leaked spare parts is about to get much more momentum.  Indeed, the same source has now published some shots of what it claims to be the actual device.
John Gruber / Daring Fireball:
Post-I/O Thoughts  —  Post-Google I/O, there's not much room left to see iPhone-vs.-Android as anything other than an all-out war.  What we've got here is a good old-fashioned epic rivalry.  —  It's exciting, vicious, fun to watch, and ultimately should prove to be excellent news for consumers.

Jan Ozer / StreamingMedia.com:
First Look: H.264 and VP8 Compared  —  VP8 is now free, but if the quality is substandard, who cares?  Well, it turns out that the quality isn't substandard, so that's not an issue, but neither is it twice the quality of H.264 at half the bandwidth.  See for yourself.
Thanks:rawmeet
MG Siegler / TechCrunch:
Google Confirms Froyo Launch: “The roll out to Nexus One devices has begun!”  —  Last last night (early this morning) there was some confusion about our post indicating that Android 2.2, Froyo, had started to roll out.  Some thought we had Photoshopped the pictures (I wish I was that good at Photoshop) …
Brad Stone / New York Times:
Regulators Are Watching Google Over Antitrust Concerns  —  IN the 1990s, Gary Reback, a Silicon Valley lawyer, almost single-handedly brought the antitrust weight of the federal government down on that era's high-tech heavyweight, Microsoft.  Now Mr. Reback contends there is a dangerous …
Michael Gartenberg / Engadget:
Entelligence: Is Android fragmented or is this the new rate of innovation?  —  Entelligence is a column by technology strategist and author Michael Gartenberg, a man whose desire for a delicious cup of coffee and a quality New York bagel is dwarfed only by his passion for tech.

Andrew Mager / ZDNet:
Best of TechCrunch Disrupt Hack Day Projects  —  When people hear the world “hack”, they think of something negative: a spammer or troll trying to get at your personal information.  But a hack, in the context of Hack Day, means to build something interesting in a short amount of time.
Discussion: TechCrunch
Paul / Music Machinery:
The Swinger  —  One of my favorite hacks at last weekend's Music Hack Day is Tristan's Swinger.  The Swinger is a bit of python code that takes any song and makes it swing.  It does this be taking each beat and time-stretching the first half of each beat while time-shrinking the second half.
Louis Gray:
Former FriendFeeder Kevin Fox Exits Facebook Henhouse  —  Only a little over two years ago, I covered well-respected Web user interface designer Kevin Fox's leaving Google for the then-startup FriendFeed.  That's practically ancient in the world of the real-time Web, as since then …
