Google BETA

I am a web nerd. I understand this and have accepted it about myself. So, this post is for web nerds, but I feel will someday affect most of us.

I am a prolific user of Google services, and not just search. Google Groups, Google Email, Google Spreadsheets, Froogle, Google Checkout, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Pages, Google Desktop, Picasa, Writely, etc, etc, etc. One thing that Google is doing that is fairly new on the technology scene is creating products that are web-based replacements of local computer-based applications. Almost all of their products and services are entirely or almost entirely web-based. They are really getting serious now, especially with Office-type applications. Another thing that Google is doing behind the scenes is buying up tons and tons of infrastructure and bandwidth for what looks like a future of universal free wireless web access across the nation. What this adds up to in my mind is the future release of an entirely web-based Google Operating System. And it will be free. Storage will be web-based, all the applications will be web-based, and everyone's entire OS, files, settings, and customizations will be available to anyone on any computer that is using GoogleOS. The server-based computer is not a new idea, but I believe Google is going to actually be the ones to make the best attempt yet to making it a reality.

I, for one, welcome our new Google overlords.
