Google’s release of the Macbook-Pro-wannabe “Pixel” has left many tech pundits in disarray. Why release such a high-end computer with such a poor OS and lack of software? Clearly, it will not sell well.
The Pixel is for Google employees, not us! It’s an old Xerox PARC trick: live 10 years in the future (hardware-wise) so that you can create it (software-wise). That’s what the Google Pixel is about.
Also, it shows Google’s is the one big company left where you can still have fun.
