Google Introduces Leanback for Youtube

Google has unveiled a new version of Youtube designed for the 10 foot experience. We are seeing more and more experiences aimed at the 10 foot UI and to me proves why its a great idea to have a small form factor PC connected to your TV (or Windows Embedded device) and why extenders are doomed

The site is called Leanback and it controlled from the arrow keys on the keyboard so it should work with the Media Center remote. There is all the usual youtube content including some full length TV shows.  I am sure some cleaver Media Center developer could get this integrated directly in to Windows Media Center
