2:29 - Partnered with Verizon to provide connectivity for all Chrome netbooks. 100MB of free data every month for 2yrs. No contracts with multiple pricing options, starting at $9.99 for day plan. Not all plans are re-occurring. Activation process is less than 5 minutes and Google is working to streamline this.
2:36 - Google talks about security for Chrome OS. Current model is based on user-responsibility to find/apply updates. Security updates are automatic, seamless (all apps, OS are updated). Sandboxing in the OS level to protect from malware. By default, all user data is separated and encrypted for security. Finally, "verified boot" puts core, initial OS in firmware as read-only: on-boot the device/OS checks this ROM to verify all other parts. The system will revert back to its backup copy if any problems during boot are detected. First consumer OS to ship with such high security.
2:37 - Google talks about Chrome in Enterprise: says that security features save money/resources on "orders of magnitude" less and that enterprise customers are clamoring due to security/IT savings.
2:39 - Citrix shows Excel being run within Chrome browser but from a "private cloud". Launches fast and updates are made very quickly to cells and graphs. Taking all of apps off the netbooks and into "private cloud" (i.e, own servers). Citrix is working with Google deliver functions early next year.
