Google Chrome OS (operating system)
What is Google’s Chrome OS? What does it do? Why do we “need or want” it?
Basically, Googles new OS makes your life on the Internet much faster and safe.
Music, movies, interaction with friends, documents, games, and email all done where?
Not on your PC, but stored online.
It’s called “Stateless”, meaning, it’s in cyber-space, not stored on your PC, not stored on your cell phone, it’s stored in cyber-space online.
So, Chrome OS is like this massive “external” hard-drive that stores all YOUR data. That includes all the above stuff, you know, email, games, video etc…
So, if you install Chrome OS on your PC, what that means is that your computer no longer has to boot-up all the applications that it requires in order to actually “work” for you. Or rather, allow you to work “on it”.
The most appealing thing about Chrome OS is that you can work very fast. The second appealing aspect of this OS is that any virus that comes along is actually going to be attacking Google’s OS, not your PC or phone OS.
Now let’s consider how this could be a sneaky “Darth Vader” approach to “owing” our minds, our hearts, our….
Or maybe I should say, “Mawahahahaha ha ha ha!!!!”
I’ve noticed a Trend, if you will.
You may have noticed it too. You see, I’m really quite computer and Internet savvy. My brain has been online since just about the birth of the Internet so some of these concepts are easy for me to follow.
However, I have many friends who can barely “text” and think the Internet is for playing games, watching videos, and sharing pictures with friends. Along with the occasional “annoyance” where they put my email in a group and send me some ridiculous hyper-forwarded sillyness that I have zero time and even less interest in reading.
Anyway, it’s these non-tech-savvy friends that I have noticed are adding me to their “Google+ Circles”. Yah, I know! What the heck?
My friends are happily uprooting themselves from Facebook and are now [hilight color="FFFF00"]finding tremendous bliss within the iCoud[/hilight] which includes – Google+, Chrome, Youtube, Gmail, and the list goes on and on and on…
This is why I am writing you today about this Trending Google+ thing. You may have noticed that a few posts back, maybe 5 or so, I wrote about how Google was going to over-take Facebook.
I mean, I have been keeping a very suspicious eye on Google and their cleverly-cloaked Darth-Vadar move on sucking the world into their user-friendly world-wide-web.
I mean, from where I sit I see Google actually taking over the Internet like it’s their own personal “INTERNET”.
Am I making sense here? Perhaps there are sounds of crickets in the background as I look into the cyber-crowd of eyes staring at their screens thinking, or “NOT” thinking, “Chrisi… what are you talking about?”
Think about this…
Google “OWNS” the search engine market. Yah, like well over 60%, perhaps as high as 80%.
Google “OWNS” the media market, you know, YOUTUBE.
And NOW, Google wants to “OWN” your PC and your PHONE by “allowing” you to store all your …. “everything” on their OS.
So, while I am in LOVE with this Google Chrome OS idea, I’m very suspicious of where we’re all heading. Perhaps Google is really not a company of happy earthlings, but rather a happy well-masked group of aliens who are slowly but surly burrowing their way into our “brains” brilliantly disguised as helpful, lovable, wonderfully fluffy-like Pooh-bear humans.
The question is not whether or not Google+ (yah, I know I took a while to get back to that) is going to take over Facebook. Perhaps the question we should truly be asking ourselves is…
When Google finally has finished planting us firmly in it’s Google-Kingdom, exactly what is it going to start REAPING from US?
What do YOU think it means?
