YouTube's made-for-TV viewing experience has made its way to Google TV. It will be available on the Logitech Revue, which is set for release before month's end.
If online video on big-screen devices like HDTVs is ever going to take off, it's going to need a specialized user interface. YouTube's latest attempt is called Leanback.
YouTube has made the impossible possible with Leanback -- the lazy man's version of the hyper-popular video streaming site requires only a keyboard to use, meaning you can leeeeeean back

Yahoo is working on a universal log-in system called Y Connect, Mike Tyson is returning to Punch Out, and Facebook is apparently sharing user data--a violation its own terms of service.
The popular video-sharing site is now supporting 4k, an industry-standard format that makes 1080p-resolution clips look tiny, by comparison.
Tubemote offers users a new way to watch YouTube videos on a big screen with an interface that can be controlled from mobile phones, Netbooks, or any other device that has a Web browser.
Vimeo is the latest to get in on the big-screen TV Web video-viewing experience with "couch mode"--a full-screen viewing mode for Vimeo videos that's remote control friendly.
On today's show, the NSA announces a new security program that's terrifyingly called "Perfect Citizen" but (at least on the surface) appears to be little more than a series of Star Trek red alert alarms.

The long-rumored Insignia Internet-enabled TVs are now official, with Chumby widgets and TiVo interfaces--but no DVRs.
