CES 2006: Google – no PC but video downloads

Broadband, CES 2006

As entertaining as Google CEO Larry Page’s keynote speech was (and if Engadget is anything to go by it sounds a hoot) it still lacked that little spice us techies were hoping for – the unveiling of a Google PC. Nevertheless Page did announce the arrival of an online video store and of a free offer to XP users to install and maintain the basic software, security and services on new and existing machines. You can read all about it here. Like Apple’s iTunes TV downloads though it could be sometime before we see the Google service launch in the UK. Shame.
