    PC Makers Turn To Google Chromebooks

    Google it. No wonder softie shills are panicking...

    Quoting:
    "Chromebooks are beginning to catch on in a big way. "
    ....
    "Want to write an "Office" document? Go right ahead and then save it in Google's cloud storage system. Or print it using Google's cloud printing system. Want to watch a movie on Netflix (NFLX_)? There's a Chrome app for that. And games. And thousands of other apps tweaked just for Chromebooks. There's also a Spotify app currently being tested (it's terrific). "
    ....
    "With Windows 8 not generating much excitement, some of Microsoft's long-time partners are also exploring the idea of Chromebooks of their own. Like Lenovo, which last week announced a Chromebook marketed to school systems. Or, today's rumor that HP (HPQ_) is going to announce a nifty Chromebook of its own next month. "
