Yahoo and Intel are teaming up to make televisions more interactive.Intel will provide hardware that will go inside new TVs and set-top boxes.

Yahoo provides the software in the form of widgets, which are small programs that let you do things like track the news, watch web videos, or buy things on eBay.

The companies hope to start rolling out this new technology early next year.
