nothing good since the early '90s with that name must have been one "HECK" of a sales job..
nothing good will come of this.. google tried their hand at the hardware business and failed miserably EVERY TIME...
google can't expect design a brand similar to "APPLE" it just ain't gonna happen.. and of course I'd like to see some REAL compeittion knock Apple on their ass.. but this ain't it.
all Google bought was the NAME with ZERO design talent. now they have to put up the help wanted sign actually get people who can design products because another failed venture and Google will probably be type-cast as using hardware companies to expense and tax write-off against profits...
Remember any companies who ROUTINELY do this? (cough,cough Cablevision).
