Google Is Making Their Own Netbooks
In this video about how Chromium OS will boot quickly (at around 2:35), the speaker mentions “we’re also using solid state storage devices… not hard disk drives” and how that will let Google Chrome OS load much faster.
My question is how would Google know what sort of hard drives we’ll be using, unless they are making their own computers?
The speaker also mentions how our “netbooks will go to sleep… and wake up in under a second”. It looks like we’ll all be buying Google Chromium OS netbooks in a few months.
Update: Robert Scoble – “Ahh, now we learn what I meant by “locked down.” You will only be able to run Google’s Chrome OS on new machines made for it.” – http://twitter.com/Scobleizer/status/5865136064
