Google "Google Chrome OS is designed around the concept of "expendable" terminals that you can lose, drop or simply throw away without fear of losing your data, which is safely stored into the cloud. [However, one] thing is certain, with all your data being available into the cloud, in one place, available 24/7 through a fast internet link, this will be a goldmine for cybercriminals. All that is necessary here is to get hold of the authentication tokens required to access the cloud account."

Going after Amazon, IBM, Microsoft and VmWare. And Chromebooks will play a major part. Google just has to convince people that this a good way to go. The only thing that bothers me is that I haven't seen anything like Windows Azure Appliance announced by Google.

I've been watching GoogleIO 2011 videos for a few days straight and I like what I am seeing. HTML5 is cool stuff. For once, HTML is really impressive. I realize that we're in the very early stages of a HTML5 web but the potential is real.

PS: While watching the videos, I kept thinking Minecraft rendered in HTML5.
