Chrome OS: Rise of the lean, mean netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| After Googleâs Chrome OS Open Source 
| announcement two weeks ago, itâs looking like 
| Google is out to change the world again â this 
| time by dominating operating systems. With 
| Google and its device partners gearing up to 
| drop the first Chrome OS netbooks on us by 
| yearâs end, 2010 may well be called the Year 
| of the Netbook.



Combining Chrome OS With Android Looks Like Google's Endgame

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that Google has unveiled Chrome OS, it
| has to make sure it doubles down on
| Chrome's exposure.
| With Chrome OS a potentially disruptive
| operating system in a market long-dominated
| by Google arch rival Microsoft, the
| backlash against Chrome will be quick and
| unrelenting if Google doesn't have a solid
| long-term plan in place. Several Microsoft
| partners are already on record as saying
| Chrome OS is "all talk."


Yahoo Should Buy Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| My last column was all about the culture of Microsoft and how it makes real
| change difficult for the company.  Itâs not just at Microsoft that these
| things happen, by the way: nearly all mature organizations get into similar
| ruts.  And if, like Microsoft, they are spectacularly profitable ruts, well
| then it isnât surprising that things stay more or less permanently
| dysfunctional.
| [...]
| Next column weâll deal with the rest of Microsoft, chopping those 20,000 to
| 50,000 heads.
| New Kindle?
| A few hours from when Iâm writing this Amazon will reportedly introduce the
| second-generation Kindle ebook reader.  A lot of money has been lost on
| ebooks over the years and I have my doubts that the Kindle is yet profitable.
| Still, if any company can make a go of eBooks it is probably Amazon.  As for
| whatâs in the new Kindle Iâll take a chance and guess right here.
