In today's TechBytes, Google is considering jumping into the cable television business.

It's a move that is sure to shake things up. The Google service would distribute stations directly over high-speed fiber optic lines.

It might also include phone service, making Google a direct competitor with big cable providers like Comcast.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet

Lenovo has come out with a new tablet geared towards mobile professionals.

The ThinkPad Tablet combines the latest Android software with some of the most popular notebook features.

USA Today's Ed Baig thinks it is a solid option for mobile professionals.

"Overall, this is a very nice tablet. Again, for mixing business and pleasure. It's not for everybody. But if you want to take advantage of a pen, want to take advantage of a keyboard with accessories, this is a pretty nice way to go," said Baig.

The ThinkPad Tablet starts at $500.
