Read this article on GigaOM the other day, and totally agree. Google is quietly and subtly building its own platform on top of platforms. Eventually, everything you do on your computer can be done through the Chrome browser and Chrome apps. The ‘future of cloud computing’ will have arrived, and everything can be done through the cloud. (Well, almost everything. Not sure about heaving video editing or 3D CAD, but I’m sure they’ll eventually come around too.)
if when I’ll be ready to purchase a Chromebook instead of a Macbook, and feel confident that I’m able to do everything I want with the machine.
