Google denies Google PC reports
Google has denied reports that it is working on a low-price personal computer or a "Google Cube" that would link up a user's PC, TV, set-top box and cell phone.
"We have many PC partners who serve their markets exceedingly well and we see no need to enter that market; we would rather partner with great companies," Google said in a statement.
The genesis of the reports may have been an online column in November in which Robert X. Cringely forecasts in his blog that Google will create distributed data centers in shipping containers that would be used to link up "Google Cubes." He describes them as plug-and-play devices that would serve as the company's "interface to every computer, TV, and stereo system in your home, as well as linking to home automation and climate control?(and) are networked together wirelessly in a mesh network, so only one need be attached to your broadband modem or router."
