Google Because of Google I/O going full-steam ahead, it's a bit of a Google thing going on here. Google co-founder Sergey Brin had a little chat with the press about the Chromebooks Google announced yesterday, and during that talk, he stated that traditional PC operating systems are "torturing users" with their complexity. While he certainly has a point, I'm not sure I like his solution. Giving Google all my files? Yeah... No.

I registered an account to congratulate you on turning Sony's fail into a verb. I hope this enters common use.

I salute you sir.

Yeah, and here's another verb for you: Amazon'd:

So if a business starts moving most/all of their data onto servers in the cloud that just happened to get Amazon'd, then the entire company is left sitting with a finger up their ass for a day or three, unable to access any of that data.
