The LA Times' Sallie Hofmeister has published her business predictions for the new year
and there's a lot of interesting speculation among them, but most interesting is this tidbit: "Sources say
Google has been in negotiations with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., among other retailers, to sell a Google PC." Of course
this isn't the first talk of a Google-branded computer, and if anyone could pull it off it would be Google. Hofmeister
speculates that Larry Page will use his keynote at CES this Friday to announce the Google PC. Me, I'm not holding my
breath, but I will definitely be watching.
