Editorial A c|net editorial posits that Google may be well on its way to developing a complete suite of internet-based services that could act as a computing environment for any thin client that's capable of accessing it. And Microsoft may be planning a similar move.

good idea for computer idiots.

"You can always keep originals or copies of all your personal files on an inexpensive X GB thumb drive. For power computer users this probably has little allure, I understand, but for the throngs of casual users who should probably not be trusted with the care and feeding of a full-blown PC (like my parents) this could be cool and useful. This would also be great for road warriors who could access their stuff without having to lug a heavy, expensive laptop."

good idea for my dad.
