Chromebook Ad: You Can’t Protect Your Chromebook From Aliens

Google has put out a new ad for its Chromebooks – the Chrome OS-based computers, which essentially rely on Google’s cloud for all storage purposes.

The ad highlights this point, claiming that you can’t keep anything safe from aliens, including your Chromebook, but that at least your files will be safe, assuming aliens actually do attack, and destroy your Chomebook.

This has actually been one of the main points Google has made about Chrome OS from the beginning. It doesn’t matter how many times you break your Chromebooks, you can always get another one, and it will be as if nothing happened.

Google shared the new ad on Google+:

    Cute ad! If you are considering Chromebooks but need access to Windows applications, you should look at Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops and all web sites – and run their Windows applications and desktops in a browser.

    You can even use AccessNow to run Internet Explorer on a Chromebook for those companies or web sites that require IE.

    Ericom‘s AccessNow does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology to be installed on end-user devices – an HTML5 browser is all that is required.

    You can choose to run a full Windows desktop or just a specific Windows app, and that desktop or Windows app will appear within a browser tab.
