Are the New Kindles Tablets-In-Training?

UK Boz Wikipedia wishlist (134 comments)

Off-line Wikipedia would be real good. Love the wikireader, but the screen is boring and goes off after a few minutes.

I'm sure with a 8-16GB memory card we could liven up the text based wiki with a few 16 shade greyscale pictures.

Google Announces Chrome OS, For Release Mid-2010

UK Boz TinFoilHat = On (1089 comments)

Almost every big site these days seems to have a google analytics link so even if your not a google-a-file your browsing history is probably being recorded, even with cookies off it is not rocket science for a web site to log your ip address and put 2 and 2 together for when you do have to switch on cookies eg to do banking or read web mail. So we block all google web links (eg make them 127.0.0.1 in our hosts file) and I renew my routers ip address regularly and I'm invisible again.. but what if google owned the whole stack... I for one prefer the browser and OS separate [ diddn't Microsoft get a small slap on the wrist for integrating the OS and browser? ]
