Google "Google's Chrome and Android operating systems will remain separate products but could have more overlap, Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said, a week after the two came under a single boss." That's that, then.

With the recent announcement of the demise of Google Reader, I think people have a vested interest in wanting to run local/offline apps. Who wants to run apps that can be yanked by the developer at any given time? I don't. This is a conversation we're not having about web apps being the future, but really should be.


Actually, the biggest problem with the demise of Google Reader is that it can't easily be replaced by offline apps. It's chief advantages are that it's always online - meaning that nothing ever gets missed - and that storing state on a central server allows feeds to be accessed from multiple devices without syncing.
