Report: Google TV showing woeful uptake among users

Tech Crunch says the amount of traffic coming to it through Google TV ranks 18th among top devices visiting the site, with a number that's so statistically small Google Analytics presents it as 0.0 percent.

Sony has already slashed prices on its line of Google TV products, in one case by some 25 percent.
