At he CES show a new google TV box to compete or replace the Logitech product was introduced by Visio http://www.bgr.com/2012/01/10/vizio-announces-two-
Here is another article as well, shows more so the controllers.
The new controllers is an interesting concept, I'd like to see how it feels to use.
Still, I like my Revue and I wish Logitech would move onto a second gen device.
This to me has been like learning to ride a bike for Logitech, except when they crashed the first time they just gave up instead of trying again and seeing how great it can be.

I've owned a Revue for well over a year and absolutely loved the previous interface as it allowed me to avoid the Dish Network's awful menu system. For the first time using Dish, I could find things quickly and easily. The new interface definitely has some advantages, but it totally erases my primary use of the product.
Every time I see this type of "sea change" with any type of product I'm usually left very disappointed and the product is usually bug ridden for an irritating period of time. Symantec is the absolute king of "let's change everything as often as possible." Apparently Google is on the same track...
I'll continue to use this product as it does have its advantages. There is also an advantage that wasn't initially clear to me when this update rolled out. Its loss of Dish TV functionality frees me from staying with Dish. The Revue menuing system was the main reason I haven't moved back to cable. So... There is a silver lining.
Also... When this new version first rolled out, I called Logitech to find out what was going on. I was told that I would never get that functionality back with their product. How nice.
