I think they have to converge at the end of the day. Just a matter of when and if Android is subsumed by ChromeOs or if ChromeOS is subsumed by Android or if they blend to form a new GoogleOS to rule them all.
Microsoft has tried it and made a huge mess by just trying to shove two different operating systems into the same body.
Apple is quietly moving their iOS to be ever more capapble and would not doubt love to have their desktop operating system as locked down and toll heavy as iOS. They are always happy to cannibalize themselves and will begin to do just that with their tablets eating into their laptops before too long.
Ubuntu is actually doing an interesting job of the attempt. If they succeed well then they'll have the most graceful and modern approach at the moment I think.
if Google has no plans for merger of any kind then they have failed to realize where the puck is heading.
Hardware improvements alone dictate convergence. As the cost of power and battery life falls there becomes no reason at all to not be converged. You are just wasting energy on two distinct paths at that point.
The key is flexibility in the interface to provide for access to a common core on different size systems - phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, TV.
Yup, it looks like the code has been cracked... #Chromebook #Chromebook2 #Exynos5422 #Exynos5420 #OneOfEach

Since I have been so busy splitting time lately between Google+ and other social networks, it's been a long time since I last updated this. And since most of the content in here is ridiculously out of date (in fact, some of it even carried over from (!) Buzz), I figured this entire section deserves a complete rewrite.
