This seems to be mostly speculation so far, but it could rock the PC industry.
Sources say Google has been in negotiations with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., among other retailers, to sell a Google PC. The machine would run an operating system created by Google, not Microsoft's Windows, which is one reason it would be so cheap – perhaps as little as a couple of hundred dollars.
Bear Stearns analysts speculated in a research report last month that consumers would soon see something called "Google Cubes" – a small hardware box that could allow users to move songs, videos and other digital files between their computers and TV sets.
Wow. Google is going for Microsoft's jugular with this one. This industry battle should be fun to watch.
