Google It's turning out to be a bit of a crazy week for cool new products, isn't it? We already got Ubuntu Touch Preview for phones and tablets, then we got the new PlayStation 4 yesterday, and today Google surprised us all by launching the Chromebook Pixel. Google's first laptop appears to be a stunning machine - just don't ask who the hell it's for.

Not at all, there are a range of chrombooks that will allow for them to spy at more modest prices. /jk

I wouldn't really trust anyone to not spy. Windows 8 really wants you to login to your own computer with a "Microsoft account" and send all of the websites you visit to them so they can make sure they are safe. Ubuntu has the whole global search thing turned on by default.

I'm pretty sure that anyone who has the means to spy on you, is.

At least with Windows 8 I can opt out.
