After all the speculation that was floating around the internet the past few days, the "big" announcement today was just that they were going to work together on a toolbar. Big deal.
In other news, has anything really happened with the Sun/Microsoft partnership?
This post on ars does a good job talking about it.
I still think that the network will become the computer, but this does nothing to advance that.
Maybe this is related?
I've been thinking about this a bit lately as well. The thing that I come back to is the idea of someone else controlling my data. A partnership between two larger corporations helps, but I think we need to get more diverse than that. I think that the only way people will feel secure is if their data is distributed in many places--both split up into pieces, and replicated between owners--and without the keys, you won't be able to figure out where it is stored or how to decript it.
I think we will see the network as the computer, like it or not, being the next big application of the Internet. What would it take for you to move?
