Google : All Set To Start The New Year With A Bang?

Google is rumored to be planning to roll out Mini Google PC - the machine would run an operating system created by Google, not Microsoft's Windows, making it cheaper -perhaps as little as a couple of hundred dollars.Bear Stearns analyst Robert Peck speculated in a research report last month that consumers would soon see something called "Google Cubes" - a small hardware box that could allow users to move songs, videos and other digital files between their computers and TV sets. In fact, "Google could over time become more of a hardware company than anything else," Peck wrote in the research note. Its widely expected that the long-talked about WebOS & Gbrowser could be part of the package.Google has assembled an impressive OS talent available today. The company has registered the Gbrowser.com, Gbrowser.org and Gbrowser.net domain names. It does not call for any great wisdom to piece these information together. The Google brower itself could be more of a development and operating environment, facilitating both offline and online usage – perhaps akin to a browser platform. To recap, if this is indeed the case, applications will be written for the WebOS and won't be specific to Windows, OS X, or Linux. Compared to "standalone" Web apps and desktop apps, applications developed for this hypothetical platform have some powerful advantages. As these run in a Web browser, these applications are cross platform. you just need a browser + local Web server to access your favorite data and apps. This would help the application developers to write just one appwith the WebOS. The user can run local applications and use them when offline as well. Eg could be Gmail, iTunes, Flickr etc. Anyone with XHTML/JavaScript/CSS skills can build these, but that depends on how open the platform is. And that depends on whose platform it is. Would Google make it happen –Lets wait & see.
