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?
FaceBook VS Google Plus
Remember those silly commercials by Yahoo? Do you YAHOOooooOOO??
Well, there was a time when Yahoo owned the search engine market. Up to 60% at one point in time. Then this amazing thing happened. Almost over night Google was THE search engine. It seemed like whenever a search was conducted in a movie, on a TV series, in the news… they “Googled” it.
WHAM! Yahoo was smacked out of this market in one clean sweep. Every since Google snagged the lions share of the search engine market, there has been no other contender.
Yah, Bing gave it a whirl, even making an appearance in the entertainment media here and there, but it was David trying to take on Goliath without his handy bag full of stones. Bing walked into that fight totally unprepared to take on the mighty Google.
The next step for Google was to dominate the video market. They bout Youtube last year in 2010 for a whopping six billion plus dollars!
Next they went after Groupon, but Groupon wouldn’t have it. They continued to turn down the SIX BILLION dollar offer to buy them out. Perhaps you are wondering what Groupon is. It’s a Deal of the Day website. So, taking over Groupon would be like snagging up a huge piece of the Ebay and Craigslist market share.
The rumor is that Groupon is perhaps holding out for a bigger offer based on the possible up to $2 billion in yearly sales.
Introducing Google+. Working it’s members up to 40 million within 4 months time.
Like Facebook but with some improvements.
Group video chats – it’s a chat room via everyone using video to be face to face.
Google allows it’s users to connect it’s Blogger personal blogs to their Google+ social networking accounts.
Facebook VS Google – Why Should YOU Care?
Social networking is a big part of making money online. Used correctly you can drive a huge amount of traffic to your website without worrying about SEO. And you can boost your SEO efforts using social networking. They go hand-in-hand.
If I was looking for a new product to create, this is what I’d be looking at now:
How to USE Google PLUS and Blogger to …
Drive traffic and Boost Your SEO
THAT I am SURE is going to be a new step by step video offer soon. Or maybe it’s already being done. I dunno. I just know that it’s worth keeping track of this new Google + social network.
Will Google make a quick snack of Facebook?

Google spent 500 million on um… their sneaky plot to rule the Internet.
Facebook Denied – Matt Cutts removes his FB page – why you ask? Well…. he “claims” its because they are not providing the proper education on privacy for their new addons.
Rumor – He’s in Kahoots with Google Plus to take over FB’s 750 million users.
