Google Chrome OS: Yet Another Bad Idea

Boots up in 7 seconds! No traditional hard drive! No need for anti-virus software! Never worry about anything. Google will take care of it for you.

Get on-board Google’s new Chrome OS.

This is my favorite part –

“Chrome OS netbooks will not have traditional hard disk drives — they will rely on non-volatile flash memory and Internet-based storage for saving all of your data.”

That’s right, just put all of your documents and files online, the playground of hackers!

And I’m not saying that Google is best bed buddies with the Patriot Act. It’s just, when the Patriot Act starts its sexy whispering in Google’s ear, Google has a hard time saying no.

But then… 7 seconds to boot up! What a miraculous cure to America’s collective ADD!

(Obviously this is all my opinion… Opinion… OPINION! Stand down, legal team, stand down.)

  1. I don’t know how this online storage thing seems to be catching on, but I agree with you. I don’t mind waiting the extra minute for my computer to boot especially if it mean that my data stays with me :p

  2. I’ve been thinking about this too, actually, and personally I dig the idea. For a primary PC, absolutely not–but that’s not the intention, and for a netbook I think Chromium makes a lot of sense. Near-instant startup for web surfing, and the ability to link over to a networked PC to pull in an eBook or stream some media.. just what I want!

    I also just read some interesting speculation, that Google could easily give away free Chromium netbooks. The hardware involved is cheap and getting cheaper, and if they coded some advertising elements into the OS they can easily recoup the costs. Put me down for 3! 🙂
