Google Changes it's Tune...

Google recently announced that the will be buying TV time to air a web-spot created by their Japan team. The hope with the TV spot is to raise awareness about Google Chrome and encourage the masses to download it (and by masses, I mean people who aren't Apple users). Here's the spot:

On the Official Google Blog, the company discusses how they are going to use Google TV to buy the media space but what really interests me is the fact that Google is using TV. For a long time, the company has been against mass advertising for their products and this could signal a large shift if Chrome downloads substantially improve. It might not be long until we see some celebrity telling us how great their Google Reader and Gmail account has been for them.
