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."

Anyone who trusts that is incredibly gullible.

This is true. One man's evil is another's protection of self interest. Which is fine and dandy, as long as Google's interests coincide with it's userbase's
