You could lose 25 notebooks in a row, but your data is always going to be safe. That’s the line Google will try to sell with the Chrome Notebook. I love this video. I just wished I could see all 25 notebooks destroyed. The guys at Google must have had fun making this video.
I assume the notebook being featured is the CR-48 that we’ve all heard about. The first accident was quite humorous. They dropped a cup of coffee, a toaster, and even the kitchen sink! Hilarious. Freezing the laptop in nitrogen and ramming a spike through it, was entertaining. Incinerating it in high heat was ok.
Based on what I’ve seen, I think I’ll wait for the second generation of Chrome OS notebooks that could withstand coffee spills, ice cream meltdowns, kitchen sinks, freezing nitrogen and intense heat.
This video shows the Chrome OS main selling point, that everything is going to be in the cloud in the future. Your data is always going to be safe and accessible from any computer, laptop, or any computer running a different OS, since everything is going to be based in the cloud.
In a few years, network connectivity is not going to be an issue since I predict most devices, including computers will have built-in broadband support.
