Mark October 17th on your calendars. That's the date Best Buy is expected to start selling GoogleTV.
Engadget received a leaked internal Best Buy document that purportedly shows the release of the GoogleTV being pushed back to October 17th. That date was apparantly pushed back from the original ship date of October 3rd, though having not been announced was only an internal target.

While we're very much looking forward to the Revue GoogleTV from Logitech, we're not looking forward to the rest of Logitech's ad campaign.
Here's Logitech's latest stab at advertising for the GoogleTV. Yes, a naked Man-TV secretly enters a young girl's room, jumps on her bed and scares her.
When taken into context with the other ads already playing on Logitech's site, the campaign makes a little more sense. TV is lonely MORESeth Weintraub - Aug 26, 2010 3:20 PM ET
Technical details are still scant, but Logitech has publicly hatched a name.
In a blogpost today, Logitech broke down the reasons it created a whole new brand for its GoogleTV appliance, rather than extending its popular Harmony brand of remotes or Squeezebox Internet radio players.
Logitech Revue does everything we're known for and more. So it couldn't just be the Harmony Box or Squeezebox TV or, even worse, the Logitech TV Hub MORESeth Weintraub - Jun 17, 2010 8:06 AM ET

There you go. Any questions?
Along with some other analysts, Forrester yesterday said they think GoogleTV will be a hit even though some, like Apple CEO Steve Jobs, have panned it.
The original video from Google I/O is pasted below.Seth Weintraub - Jun 16, 2010 12:38 AM ET
At Google I/O, Logitech was said to be building set-top boxes, while Sony was said to have been building TVs and Blu-Ray players with GoogleTV. A new FCC doc seems to show a Sony stand-alone device.
Engadget uncovered a FCC filing this morning that shows a Sony box sitting on a workstation (below) with a separate label 'Internet TV Box' pictured at right.
That sounds very GoogleTV-ish. Are we looking at Sony's Google TV?

As one of GoogleTV's premiere launch partners, Logitech finds itself the center of attention for the first time in its long history.
Logitech was founded in Switzerland in 1980 by two Standord alums, Daniel Borel and Pierluigi Zappacosta, and Giacomo Marini, a former manager at Olivetti. For the first part of its life, Logitech made mainly mice and then keyboards.
Logitech (LOGI) did this extremely well, better than anyone else in the world. In MORESeth Weintraub - May 26, 2010 3:07 PM ET
Consumers don't want the web on TV – they want a better TV experience
As you might have seen last week, my Techmate sparring partner Michael and I got into it a bit about Google TV. He liked the idea, I didn't.
I still don't.
At the time when we shot our video segment on the subject (see below), I had heard rumors about the announcement, and the details weren't yet clear – MOREJon Fortt - May 24, 2010 2:10 PM ET
With Google TV, the company wants to marry the web with the living room television experience
Earlier today, Google gave an impressive demonstration of their vision for the future of the television experience that was marred only by Bluetooth connectivity issues.
The company plans to combine its video technology and TV partnerships to bring the web into the living room. From YouTube "lean back" (ie. living room view-friendly) sites like NBA.com to MORESeth Weintraub - May 20, 2010 5:09 PM ET
