iPad vs. Chrome OS, Round two!

To recap, iPad and all of these new emerging tablets are essentially couch computers, filling the very small void of computer activity in your life where laptops/netbooks are too awkward and smartphones/MID’s (Mobile Internet Devices, think smartphone without the phone, like an iPod Touch as opposed to an iPhone) are too small to comfortably watch movies and surf the web when your relaxing and not on the move. Also, because Google’s Chrome OS relies heavily on cloud computing, I will also use this time to discuss some of the potential and alleged drawbacks of cloud computing as Chrome’s success depends largely on weather or not cloud computing is ready to take on the everyday tasks of the average computer user.
