Just signed up for the pilot program yesterday. I hope I get picked to test one out! Although the cloud experience will be very weird for me. Heres the link in case anyone else wants to try for the pilot program.

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Man that'd be a neat device to get your hands on, and if you get to keep the prototype it'd probably be worth a decent some in the future if Chrome OS turns out to be a sucess and gains popularity
Thanks LS: I put my hat in for a handful of them. I'd love to distribute a few to the higher-ups and try to use them to eventually leverage us to less proprietary solutions.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
No problem, I hope I get one. A little curious about the google cloud, which types of applications will installable, and which will be offered on the cloud. I know Google Docs is going to be a big part of it, but what about photo/video editing and audio programs that google has not conquered yet. My teachers at school have been talking about cloud computing for a few years, and about how eventually most programs like the adobe suite or Microsoft office will be offered via cloud as a pay per use service.
Although I do not really want to move in that direction, I am really interested in how the transition will happen.
Actually, now that I think about it, cloud computing blows my mind.
I bet every geek in the world has signed up for this though.
Not that I did not :)
I signed up with my company in mind though. Perhaps Google will give me extra points for honesty, specifically on the point where they asked how the laptops would likely be used and I said "To negotiate down the cost of our Microsoft Windows licenses."
3vi1:"To negotiate down the cost of our Microsoft Windows licenses."
Sounds like a Googleishish reason to me!
Hahaha nice. I was going to sign up at work under education because I'm still in school, but it got super busy. =(
