Google Chromebooks

“Well it was bound to happen sometime”, said Microsofts founder Bill Gates. Okay maybe he didn’t say that, but I bet he used stronger language!

So Google’s attempt to take over the entire world continues with it’s recent launch of the Google Chromebooks. Basically e-machines that come with their browser Google Chrome installed. While Microsoft are probably not losing too much sleep about this just yet, they must see the writing on the wall as Google makes more in-roads into Microsofts traditional market space.

The fact that it’s a Google Chrome pc suggests to me there won’t be room for another browser on their machine. Students can rent a Google pc for $20 per month on a two year contract, while prices for buyers starts at around $400. So it’s a new dawn for home computing but the world keeps turning anyway.
