Cloud Connections Availabe Here

The Google is getting into the hardware business. Starting June 15, Google Chromebooks will be available for lease by educational institutions and small businesses. Business users will pay $28 a month for each Chromebook and educational institutions will pay $20 a month per unit.

According to Mashable, IT managers can use virtualization platforms like Citrix to offer access to non-web apps, essentially making the Chromebook a thin client on steroids.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
