In a world where web product names seem to be getting shorter and missing out vowels* to get marginally quicker to type, 'chromebook' doesn't seem like a very catchy handle for a shiny new device.

I abbreviated this to c'ook for the first time a few moments ago and kinda liked it. Does anyone think this could catch on? Do you have a better short name for your c'ook?


*razr, solr, flikr, yslow, bit.ly, yfrog, etc.

Well, I must admit that 'Chromebook' is not really catchy. Somehow, I am sure people will get creative and I agree c'book is not a bad start. I would call it, 'r'book.'

"Gbook" (pron. gee-book) is good!
"Cbook" (pron. see-book) is another option too - not quite the same as "c'ook" (pron. cook)

Any more?

Chromebook is a great name and describes the product exactly as it is. A notebook that runs Chrome OS. C'ook looks like an online cooking magazine.

Gbook would set all of the Apple die-hards off, I think Google chose well.

I like the name Chromebook too. If I am going to have to vote on one of the suggestions I think I am going to have to go with Gbook.

Gbook?

Gbook has a lot going for it. Gmail is ubiquitous, universally recognized and understood. When I mention Chromebook blank stares/long pauses/a while before the reply are the norm. Updating the info from my end ( as in: it's a new form of web access/computing/browsing/apping machine put out by Google ) gets instant responses ( Google is making hardware? ) and a secondary wave of "I googled it, this looks so cool !" My vote is for Gbook

And on to Gpad, Gslate, Gmini and Gkini . How about Ggoggles? That would be the industrial strength version of Gshades, the very hip/super cool new shades with the internal heads-up (in this case heads-sideways) display in the shades, allowing you to look totally cool while doing something productive or looking totally productive and focused ( while wearing the Gnerd model, makes you look like a techhead ) and goofing off on the web.

Any other Gproduct ideas out there?

I've never liked the name "Chromebook" because it makes me think of some car-related things (something to do with wheels, no doubt). "Gbook" is much better, although I'm sure there'd be the inevitable pervy jokes about it...

I think it should be named "The laptop that isn't a laptop and based on Chrome OS which is part of the open sourced Chromium OS project", or the "TLTIALABOCOSWIPOTOSCOSP" for short.

Perhaps the touchpad of a gbook would be called a g spot? :)




Sorry.
