People are buzzing about a supposedly leaked video (below) that supposedly shows the Chromebook Pixel, a touch-screen laptop supposedly designed by Google. It’s gorgeous. And coming on the heels of the Nexus 4 smartphone, and the very slick work that Google did with Jelly Bean, this product furthers the impression that Google has started to get really good at design, as some people have been noticing lately.
TechCrunch has the whole story of where the video might have come from and how it made its way accidentally onto YouTube. It’s not worth repeating other than to say that there’s a company in Mountain View, Calif., that seems to be run by a former Google engineer and maybe makes videos for Google, and apparently they got hacked and this video got leaked.
Who knows and who cares. Our own Jon Mitchell believes it’s a real product, and he’s a leading authority on Google. Check out the video of a world “where all your things are always wherever you are, and your computer actually gets better over time.” If this thing is for real, I want one.
