DOH! Google’s internet of things vision is powered by… Mac OS

This dogfood tastes of Apple

Reducing security risks from open source software

Few companies have as all encompassing a vision as our friends at Google. From handsets and cloud apps, to airships via, ad sales and Chromebooks, this is the company that reckons anything you can do, it can do better. Or at least do with an ad on it.

No, there’s nothing fruity about our vision of the future

Is that a MacBook we see before us?

So we couldn’t help but be drawn into its presentation on the Internet of Things, wearable tech and smart machines at last week's Cloud World Forum.

We weren't disappointed as the presentation showed a succession of charmingly “real” people marvelling at the Googleplex’s outputs, particularly those friendly little driverless cars.

There was only one omission, at least in our time watching. Where were the Chromebooks? Or did someone blow a fruit-shaped hole in the cover of the presenter's laptop?

Which raises two questions: has peace broken out in the valley? And if not, does facial egg count as a wearable? ®
