Is Google Trying To Kill Your Hard Drive With The New Chrome OS? « TheBizcoachblog.com

An interesting article and perhaps an unjustified spin.

We are already hearing that Tablet devices, such Apple’s  iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab will replace the laptop as a preferred method of mobile computing and communication. Then logically why do you need to have a Hard Disc Drive with you when you can use someone else’s server

Is Google trying to kill off your hard drive? Google says you don’t need it anymore. The company is also betting you won’t need that Windows, Macintosh or Linux stuff either. Crazy I know but Google says it wants you to access, operate, and edit all your files on the Internet.

Google has developed a lightweight operating system of its own, the first new competition for Windows and Macs in years. It’s called Chrome OS. And it could have a profound effect on the way we work with computers.

You won’t be able to put it on your current PC. But Google wants it to power your NEXT computer.

And because it’s based almost entirely on the Internet, Chrome is smart and superfast. No more “Where did I save that file?” No more computer slowdowns. No more crashes?

“Today’s operating systems were designed in an era where there was no web,” Google spokesman Eitan Bencuya told FoxNews.com. “Google Chrome OS is designed for people who spend most of their time on the web. It’s our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.”

Facebook used in hunt for Jo Yeates’ killer

Facebook used in hunt for Jo Yeates’ killer

Detectives have begun a Facebook campaign in a bid to catch the killer of Jo Yeates.

Jo Yeates

Her body was found on Christmas Day, in Longwood Lane, Failand, eight days after she was reported missing from her home in Clifton, Bristol.

Police said Facebook was more effective than posters and leaflet drops as it has the potential to reach more people.

Meanwhile, Miss Yeates’ mother, Teresa, has spoken of how quiet life is without her daughter’s “joy and vibrancy”.

Detectives investigating the murder of the 25-year-old landscape architect have said there was no evidence she was sexually assaulted, but they have not ruled out a sexual motive.

The force has appealed for sightings of a 4×4 seen near to where her body was found.


Her landlord, Chris Jefferies, 65, who was arrested on suspicion of her murder, is free on bail.

The Facebook campaign involves an advert that will allow people to contact the incident room via the social networking site rather than calling in.

It appears randomly, as with all adverts on the site, but is set to target users across the UK.

People who click on the advert will be taken through to the force website where there is a contact form to provide the police with information.

The force has already received 260 messages through the website

Det Ch Insp Phil Jones, of Avon and Somerset Police, said he hoped it would encourage more people to come forward.

“The majority of people these days are spending time on Facebook and other social networking sites; this has become part of everyday routine for many people,” he said.

“This advert allows us to point people to special features on our website with all the latest information, it allows them to contact the incident room direct online rather than calling in.

“I would once again urge anyone who may have not contacted my team and may have information that could help this enquiry to contact us. Let us decide if this information is significant.”

He said police had successfully used Facebook in a number of high-profile cases because information could be shared more widely than by poster.

Scott Fulton, head of e-services at the force, said: “On this inquiry alone we have had shares of the story from the force’s Facebook page of 24,220.

“Additionally there have been over 63,000 views of the news updates on our website, a further 18,000 on the dedicated Jo page and over 70,000 views of the CCTV clips on our YouTube channel.

‘Dangerous chemicals’

“Through the website we have had 260 inbound messages to the incident room.”

Speaking about life without her daughter, Mrs Yeates, who lives in Ampfield, Hampshire, said: “It is just so quiet here without her.

“She just had this joy and vibrancy, even though she didn’t live here.

“I am sat in the kitchen just wanting her to come through the door.”

Crime scene investigators are continuing to examine Miss Yeates’ flat in Canynge Road.

There was a sign outside the building saying “Do not enter, dangerous chemicals”.

A number of uniformed officers were also seen entering Mr Jefferies’ flat.

Miss Yeates was last seen at about 2000 GMT on 17 December after she had been drinking with colleagues in the Bristol Ram pub in Park Street in the city.

She visited three shops on the way home and was filmed on CCTV.

She bought a pizza in one of the stores – the receipt was discovered in her flat but no evidence of the pizza or the packaging has been found.
