Do you support the idea that Chromebooks are doomed to fail?
Two more weeks and we still cannot stop speculating; but what else can we do when we await a whole new concept? Based on the argument that Google has been exhibiting poor execution on items out of their core search/ad space, critics want to base their argument on that.
Do you support the view that he Chromebook will either crash and burn or be recalled if it does not catch up?
I expect Chromebooks and the ChromeOS to evolve over time. I do not agree with any of the following premises:
Google has been exhibiting poor execution
Chromebook will crash & burn
Chromebook will be recalled
Clearly, a hardware manufacturer might have some problem with a component that could lead to a product recall, but that's happened countless times with most of the manufacturers in the PC industry. Also, it's not inconceivable that Android's future versions and ChromeOS's future versions might benefit from greater overlap/integration.
I also don't expect there will be an accurate assessment of the ChromeOS's success or failure by the end of June.
I agree, I think it will be a slow to moderate launch. However, I do not think it is doomed to fail. I think, years from now, we are going to computing in a whole new way and we will look back and say, "The Google Chromebook started it all."
I really like and support the cloud concept. I'm surprised that no one else but Google has been able to push it forward in this fashion. Don't know if it will succeed but I'm rooting for the Chromebook.
