I was skeptical when I heard about computing in the cloud and even more so when I heard about Google Chromebook. I have only just realized I was not being fair. I had no idea how many apps there were. I am up way to late and I will probably spend way to much time browsing all these apps. Suddenly the Google Chromebook makes sense. Duh!
No, not exactly, it is not a new name for just app coding, HTML5 is a general coding enhancement from what I understand. However, HTML 5 gives a coder power to make apps that will be the end of things like newspapers and what not.
