Since no one else is freaking i might as well

Don't do it! This is googles plan to control the internet and charge us a monthly fee to use it!

Anyone else look into the new google operating system at all yet? It's still in beta but it looks promising :).

(google is not in the spellchecker lol).

i do wonder if they will be monitoring traffic to help "improve" their search and ad-serving capabilities. however, my granpappy always said "there is no such thing as a free lunch!"

The Google Chrome OS isn't something you can just download and install, if I remember correctly. It's an OS you can only get if you buy a computer shipped with it. The OS seems kinda simplistic to me, you can't do anything that a netbook couldn't do. So you can't play any real games or anything.

Actually, it increases your security when you use them as your DNS.

Dudemus brings up a good point. Google makes a lot of money taking your information and then selling it to ads to help create targeted advertisement. So although Microsoft looks evil and charges through the nose for things that generally suck, Google has a much darker side that not many people realize.

I'd still rather work for google, Muwhahahahhahaa. They make $

Google will kill us all when they grant computers the capacities to learn and then hook it up to the internet.
Then, it's Judgement Day.

Until then, my internet needs a speed boost so I'll give it a shot.

Sounds like they're doing my shopping for me.
