Internet search provider Google appears more serious than ever about preparing features for home electronics. In the past few weeks, the Mountain View, Calif.-based firm has begun looking for employees to make Google TV and radio products compatible with televisions, stereos, radios and cell phones.
As for TV, Google appears to be preparing an on-demand service that would serve up videos and games. The company is asking for software engineers with experience in Internet-based, interactive TV, personal video recorders, video-on-demand and some unspecified features offered by cable operators. There are now at least three TV-related job openings at Google: a product manager, and two television technology engineers, one based in Mountain View, Calif., the other in Kirkland, Wash.
