Yup. Pixel C aims for productivity and Chrome is by miles the better productivity OS.
I honestly think the Pixel C running Chrome OS for $500 dollars, would've been a lot more exciting than running Android.
How in the world people is going to buy one, if you can buy the iPad Air 2 64GB for $475 on Best Buy right now, which has split screen and lots of tablet optimized apps??
Touch in small screens (Smartphones) is essential. Touch on big screens (laptops) not at all. Not even Apple knows what to do with its iPad, and more and more people are not interested on Tablets. Google, again you're way late to the party.

After all these years, The Times gives a hand-job to Werner Erhard. Spare us the resurgence. I covered his celebrity many years ago in San Francisco (oh, if only the Examiner archives had been digitized), pissing him off a few times by ridiculing his quotes that said nothing. One from today: “Maybe life is not about the self but about self-transcendence! You got a problem with that?” 
He is the father of so much that is nonsense and narcissistic about California culture. Reading his quotes makes me mindful of the road to TED, where everybody has their 18 minutes of being Werner Erhard.
The creator of EST resurfaces as a kinder, gentler purveyor of self-actualization.

Beautifully sung. A shame its perfomance was triggered by such a senseless tragedy.

+Dave Besbris reports much progress with AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages).

I'll be writing a bit about that in my Observer column later this week after attending Google's Newsgeist this weekend. I also have been evangelizing AMP like crazy during my visits to Nigeria, South Africa, Mexico, and Colombia -- 3G markets where much faster pages will have a much bigger impact on media businesses in mobile.

I'm glad to see that Bes says they are getting interest from "thousands of publishers." Advertising and analytics companies want to play. (My only smartass reaction is that AMP alone will not cure Outbrain's sins!) Developers are showing interest -- and that is the key to making an open-source project work.

I believe this is an important shift in how we will think of distribution and the web experience. You'll use an application like Nuzzel, click on links, and it will feel as if you've never left. My real hope is that media companies will spend less effort on copying each other and more on linking -- but that will also require a shift in business models from volume to value. One step at a time....

Great. Now if only I could get my own publisher to adopt AMP...

This makes a lot of sense. I'd love to see a future Pixel C running a tablet version of Chrome OS. I'd definitely want to buy that. 
The Pixel C is ill-suited to Android, but it wasn't supposed to be this way...

Republicans: It is time that you disavow Donald Trump and assure your sane friends that you will not support him should he win the nomination. We Americans expect every Muslim to repudiate every violent act by a Muslim. Well, now we expect every Republican to repudiate bigoted, demagogic acts by this Republican.

A very interesting debate on TWIT about Google's AMP push with +Richard Gingras and +Matt Cutts and +Jeff Jarvis and +Leo Laporte and more!  So interesting to watch.
We know Google is pushing AMP, Accelerated Mobile Pages on publishers to solve the issue with the mobile web. I even said this in my what to look for in 2016 as one of my three things to look at. Ye

My latest column comes from the Google Newsgeist event last weekend, in which -- true to form -- I saw some journalists acting as a herd of Eeyores. I wish for the journalists and technologists to start seeing that many of their goals are aligned.
