Infoworld blogger believes the iPad will kill the netbook (and the Chrome OS)

Meanwhile, his colleague has been bracing himself against the onslaught of users who would sneak their shiny new iPads into the workplace to give the resident IT staff nightmares. Don't forget, those guys HATE change. You can read his thoughts at http://www.infoworld.com/d/win.....alypse-352 and http://www.infoworld.com/d/win.....ed-now-921

    I dont think the iPad will kill Chrome OS. It hasn't even came out yet, and iPad isn't even running a cloud OS.

      To be honest, neither do I. It's actually hard to take sides with either of those guys, LOL, they're both so far to the extreme. But it makes for an interesting debate. The iPad is gonna need a cloud OS if the users want anything more than a device to take on the go; they will have to store their main data somewhere else.

      One suggestion to store data is to get a pogoplug.

      For $129 (well, $119 at Newegg) you can access and share the contents of your external hard drives through the Internet, with no fees or strings attached for life.
