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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
