And for this she acquired company Neverware, which specializes in turning old laptops and desktops into gadgets, similar Chromebook.

Now for an explanation. Chromebooks are a line of devices that run Chrome OS. The main distinguishing feature is that gadgets use the Google Chrome browser to perform their tasks, while most applications and data are in the cloud, not on the device. Devices of this type run on the Linux-based Chrome OS operating system, are less demanding on hardware and can work for decades.

And now the news itself. Neverware, which was acquired by Google, takes old PCs, including laptops and desktops, and turns them into Chromebook-like devices, without going into details. In other words, it gives devices new life. The Google specialists seemed to like this approach and decided to buy the company.

Everyone is happy.
