Unless Google decides to offer good cloud storage package to potential buyers of its new HD driveless laptop otherwise that might get it less attractive.

Google's perfected itself in cyber space business and of course gradually spreading its tentacles to OEM. Meanwhile, a look at the Chromebook ok but i cant understand reason behind its no harddisk drive. Mini tablet would better, i think.

Yes, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a hard drive. I think they expect users to use the cloud. If it does have a hard drive there's not much space. I have not looked that deep into the Chromebook.

Looks like Google will also need a logistics strategy to ship its new Samsung Chromebook

With such kind of service , Google will become like the Lloyd's register of yesteryears where the world's all ship movements were monitored.

Interesting patent. Perhaps this is something targeted for the Android NFC mechanism.

Google's business model relies mostly on getting people to adopt its hardware and interaction with ads online or in apps, rather than a paid license model.

@Laurie: But big ornization may not be willing to pay big money to Google. They may like to create their own relevant data. That will much chepear solution.

Agree with Tam--this is pretty interesting. Kind of along the lines of Amazon.com--create a marekt and then provide the hardware. No questions security will be big and there is definitely a race on to dominate solutions. Douglas Alexander has a series on a program IBM and others are working on.
