Google celebrated Pacman’s 30th anniversary yesterday with an interactive PacMan Google logo. The birthday cake is all chowed-up – the the birthday party is all done but the cool, interactive, and fully functional PacMan logo is still featured in Google.com. That left me wondering if the PacMan logo signify more than a simple birthday party!
Google is in the verge of releasing an Operating System, a web based OS. The programs in the Chrome OS are supposed to work like the PacMan logo. The games and programs are supposed to run in remote servers and we, consumers, won’t need a hard disk to install software.
When the announcement of a Web Apps store like the Apple Apps store and PacMan birthday mystically coincided, and the ‘birthday logo’ was featured in an extended period, I believe Google wants us to believe this is how Google’s OS works.
Google is trying to redefine how we use computers. They told that the desktop is soon going to be obsolete and, now it is becoming clear how they are going to change the computing platform.
Later this year, Google is planning to open a Web application store for easier set up programs based on the Chrome browser. It is an important step towards the release of Chrome OS, Google announced last year.
The online store was previewed during a Google conference for software programmers. The Chrome OS is being developed for light-weight laptops (netbooks) that don’t have any hard drives. Every programs run on it will be remotely hosted and run. Chrome OS powered computers will be cheap and are expected to arrive in store in time for the holiday shopping season.
The Google’s Web apps store is also expected to provide applications for tablet computers to compete with Apple’s iPad. Like the Apple store, the Google store will also feature paid as well as free apps to download for the computers using Chrome OS
