The Future Of Computers
The computer of the future for today’s kids might not really be a computer at all. Companies such as Google are working on a new system of computing that will not have a traditional operating system and hardware, but will be constantly attached to the internet, and will store all software and data in the cloud.
These new “Chrome” computers would be particularly attractive to students and young people, who use the machines more for social networking and collaboration than their parents. And the lower price may make them more attractive to schools and universities.
