And because of it Google(NASDAQ:GOOG), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) are all quaking in their collective boots. Well, not really, but the idea of a platform neutral OS similar to Android is a powerful one. Google has Chromebooks and now Chromeboxes, neither of which are products that are truly worth anything when entry-level 13″ laptops are similarly priced. Why buy a web browser with an attitude problem as your PC when you can get a real one for the same money and actually do something with it?
The idea boggles the mind. but, then again so does Google+, frankly, even though I have an account that I mostly ignore.
But, as the basis for a smartphone OS now? The browser with the over-sized ego is not a bad idea, as long as you can play Pocket God and Angry Birds really what else is there? Oh right, Words with Friends. Silly me.
