Update 01/05: This year at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, starting January 8, 2013, Google announcing mobile/TV pairing feature to devices from its partners including Bang & Olufsen, LG, Panasonic and Sony.

"These new devices will also have the latest look and feel for YouTube on TV, letting you watch HD videos and channels on the big screen with everyone at home. Catch the latest videos from your subscriptions, watch playlists full of 1080p videos and find the next great video faster with search suggestions," google posted.

Also, in 2013, "more devices with these features are coming from Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, Vizio, Western Digital and others."

Combined, these set-top boxes, integrated TVs, and IPTV boxes with Google TV are available from 9 partners across 10 countries around the world. In addition, recently launched apps on Google TV like Amazon, France24, Dramafever and more will also be shown.

In other news, Google updated Chrome's certificate revocation metadata on December 25 to block intermediate CA, and then alerted TURKTRUST and other browser vendors.

Google blocks intermediate certiface authority from TURKTRUST in Chrome

Chrome first detected and blocked an unauthorized digital certificate on December 24, 2012 for the "*.google.com" domain that was issued by an intermediate certificate authority (CA) linking back to TURKTRUST, a Turkish certificate authority.

Given the severity of the situation, "we will update Chrome again in January to no longer indicate Extended Validation status for certificates issued by TURKTRUST, though connections to TURKTRUST-validated HTTPS servers may continue to be allowed," Google wrote.

Intermediate CA certificates carry the full authority of the CA, so anyone who has one can use it to create a certificate for any website they wish to impersonate.
