How wasted! The 'good folks' at Google destroyed about 25 laptops and netbooks in order to make this video. The video debuted a few days ago in YouTube shows an act of vandalism by destroying about RM50,000 (estimated and roughly) to show you one advantage of using Google Chrome OS. Luckily, it is now actually affordable to lose, burn, freeze or smash your laptops when you are using Google Chrome OS because you will never ever lose your data - not a bit! Well, as long as the internet network around the world does not collapse, then your data are safe.

Watch the video below. Tell me what's your reaction after you watch it. The video is available after the jump.

OS is an acronym for Operating System. Anyone of you reading this is definitely using only either Windows or Mac as your OS four your PCs. There isn't much options in the market. However, Google Chrome OS is expected to hit the store coming early of 2011.

Cr-48: Yes it looks like this on its interface. Your desktop background is like the Google Chrome web browser. 

Now, why Google Chrome is so different? Unlike conventional OS which is run by installing softwares into your PCs before you enjoy it, Chrome OS provides everything for their softwares - from Office Document (with Google Documents), internet browsing with Chrome and its ever expanding applications and extensions, chat with Google Talk and do 'Photoshop' picture editing with Picasa. Notice that all of these tasks are done with internet connected. Chrome OS is powered by internet and your works are not saved in your hard disk (or not so much!)

You know how much I love Google, I am not one of those lucky people who have tested their beta version of netbook that runs under Google Chrome OS. The beta version known as Cr-48 are the first generation of Google Netbooks. Below are some other details about Google Chrome OS:
  1. Design goals for Google Chrome OS's user interface include using minimal screen space by combining applications and standard Web pages into a single tab strip, rather than separating the two.
  2. Designers propose using search and pinned tabs as a way to quickly locate and access applications.
  3. Google Chrome OS consumes one-sixtieth as much drive space as Windows 7.
  4. Google Chrome OS uses solid state memory, instead of traditional hard disk.
  5. While Chrome OS will support hard disk drives, Google has requested that its hardware partners use solid-state drives "for performance and reliability reasons"
  6. Drewry described Chrome OS as a "hardened" operating system featuring auto-updating and sandbox features that will reduce malware exposure.
I know some rich ass in Malaysia will get their hands first when Google Chrome OS arrives. Anyway, read also these un-boxing articles.
