Google?s Business Experiment: Nothing but Web

By Tom Simonite, Technology Review
Decades of Moore's Law have trained us to expect every new computer to do more than the one before. Google's most ambitious foray into cloud computing, however, has it wooing businesses with computers that do much less. Those computers are known as Chromebooks. The laptops, officially launched in June, use an operating system called ChromeOS that is little more than a souped-up version of Google's Chrome Web browser. “Chromebooks came from this realization that cloud computing gives an opportunity to rethink what the desktop is,” says Rajen Sheth, Google's program manager for Chromebooks. The pitch to businesses is slightly more prosaic: outfitting and supporting workers with Google's Chromebooks costs a lot less than giving them conventional PCs.
