Even if I had originally been considering getting one of these (which i've been against this OS from the start) that last line of the article would be enough to make me say "oh hell naw"from the article:
The company's broader strategy is to have everything on the Web, so it can index it and monetize it with ads. Will you be buying one?
The short answer: "not a chance in hell".The company's broader strategy is to have everything on the Web, so it can index it and monetize it with ads. Will you be buying one?
Thanks for clearing that up for us. I eagerly anticipate your 18th post.Listen, because you need to wake up, like the rest of this World of Trolls and REALIZE a FEW THINGS ABOUT CHOME OS; Google's attack on clunky running operating systems is coming whether YOU and Others like it or not! You ****** think Chrome is just a browser, but it's actually an Operating System Disguised as Browser, without any legacy code whatsoever. It's truly NEXT GEN STUFF, incorporating all of Google's incredibly fast technologies (including SPDY) as well as advanced industrial strength features in IPv6. Like Jumbograms...... which can be sized up to 4GiB (4.289GB) in size (this is an industrial strength container freighter on certain devices). Normal IPv4 packets are only measured in Kilobytes and for normal users in IPv6 they will go up in size quite a bit, but not into the GB range. Less packets, limited hops and more efficient routing along with a monstrous address space, will allow every device to have it's own address for decades into the future. Which means NO MORE NAT! .....right now in good old fashioned America, we still have carriers refusing to invest in the new equipment technology (too cheap like AT&T and Time Warner) to bring everybody into the future with IPv6 support. Instead only businesses and governments get the chance to use the faster far better protocols of the Future in IPv6. Verizon is only giving you IPv6 on 4G while Sprint is working to provide it for everyone. IPv6 brings IPsec now being required security. Which is far better than SSH, TLS, etc and is slow because it's encrypted on the device. IPsec is automatically encrypted enroute and includes everything sent!!! Improved secure hypertunneling of IPv6 will make your connection to the Cloud as secure as performing compute tasks as if on your local device. The Cloud becomes your computer, but you will still have the power to compute applications on your local device cached to your system. You won't really be on the web until you leave Google's Cloud Space and then.... you are anonymous and protected from intrusion, malware or virus infection always. Because you're only operating a sandboxed browser encrypted through a Secure Hypertunneled (like VPN but better) path that's hides you behind Garden Walls, but with full free access rather than controlled access of Apple's iOS for instance! Most people are now using their computers primarily for internet web access, email and providing content today. The object of both Chrome Browser and Chrome OS is to provide productivity along with that content, since you're already only using the web anyway. They are both prepared w/ new API's to run applications even after you close your browser and no other browser is capable of doing this. So.... Chrome Browser becomes an Operating System within a browser,Trojan Horsed right into your present OS. Where do YOU spend most of your time? Most likely you live on the Web and Chrome will in time make your legacy OS simply a hindrance as well as totally obsolete for evermore!!! ......Apple seems to think pacifying you with a dual boot OS simple incredibly inept Safari browser will keep you happy, so they can continue to sell you what you don't even need anymore!!! Now with Google Chrome you must think FAST... like in "SPDY" FAST= like in up to 64% faster than plain HTTP than everything else out there!!!! http://www.chromium.org/spdy/spdy-whitepaper
