I was reading a blog that was suggesting that Google's main target right now are schools and businesses. There was a mention to the third market being fans who like to live in the cloud. Do you think this blog is correct?
I like it so far. I don't own a Chromebook yet, but I use almost all of Google's services. I use Google Docs, Calendar, Picasa, Google Voice, and I've also been using Google's Music Beta for about 2 weeks and like it a lot.
I don't think that I'll feel the "culture shock" that most people will when switching to the cloud.
I use a ton of Google's services as well. For me Google Docs, Google Calander, Picasa, Google Voice and soon Google Plus are all important. That is part of the reason I want a Chromebook so much! So yes, I love living in the cloud! Hey, I'm on cloud 9!
I agree that the Google Chromebook has schools and businesses at a target. I think that is the best way to get exposure while really understanding what users need. And yes, I love to live in the cloud!
I have yet to get a Chromebook but when word went round that this was the next fad in the computing industry, I slowly started acquainting myself with the cloud concept and so far, I like the experience.
Actually, many of us have been living in the cloud without realizing it. I have been using facebook and saving all my docs in my email (as a draft) before Google Docs came out. Of course I still use flash drive from time to time.
