Wasn't HPs Moonshot kinda-sorta about accessing gobs and gobs of memory-speed storage using photonics as the medium? The reason I'm asking is because despite being a registered member of Team Lenovo, I recall being really inspired by HP's whole Moonshot architecture which, had it been built, would have rendered RDMA less important. It seems like we'll get to something like Moonshot, but incrementally and likely over decades.

Hey, at least you can actually get this Google product. I'm looking at you Google Fiber and yes I live in a theoretically available area. I'm disappointed with Alphabet on multiple fronts. But as long as the advertising business is breathing, they've no incentive to improve. Even poorly run McDonald's profit.
Summary: Google has their own Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
I'll make an effort to dig a little deeper and compare/contrast what Google is implementing with the TPM invented by IBM in ~2002ish, but I'm guardedly confident that the deltas won't be too much. That TPM chip (the HW implementation) is licensed to and implemented by many, many OEMs.
The only real story then would be that Google is rolling their own version of a TPM.
If I'm wrong, please let me know where I've fallen short and I'll thank folks in advance for any corrections or clarifications.
Despite IANA storm, ICANN shows just why it shouldn't be allowed to take over internet's critical functions

Many years ago I was sitting in my home office (recliner downstairs) and I'd left a machine powered off upstairs. I thought about extricating myself from the recliner, but then - when I heard the Whos in Whoville sing - I decided to see if I could script up something relatively quickly and get a magic packet (the packet that initiates a wake-on-LAN event at the node that is powered down) to wake it up. I took me about an hour, but I did it. I was a God for that brief moment.
Re: pushing a free upgrade
I'm sure I'm an edge case, but I have not less than 6 Lenovo laptops dating back to the original X1 (NOT carbon) from 2006 with Intel 3000 graphics and I've gotten Win 10 to run on each and every one of them with only one major issue on one machine. (One of the X1's doesn't properly handle DID - dual independent displays).
My mom and pop - who are in their 70's - are comin' up for a visit this weekend and they've both asked that I chaperon their upgrades.
I was working at IBM (then Lenovo) in development engineering for the launches of Win2000, Win98, Millenium, XP and 7 and I must say that the Win10 launch has been far and away the best - highest quality - launch of a Windows OS I've yet seen. YMMV, but I wish you luck in your upgrading endeavors.
I've been a Google evangelist since I got my e-mail account in 1997. And I'm about to break up with her. There's not a single Google device, app or service that I use that doesn't have one, "Are you f'in kidding me?", primitive usability issue. Here's a brief list of the Google services I use...
> Chrome - Would up and down scroll arrows kill you? Why yes I did want to arbitrarily jump to another section of a very long web page for no good reason.
> Google drive + 1TB storage THAT I PAY FOR - Can't upload to it. NOT SYNC; just *(^%^ upload.
> GMail - The archive vs delete debacle, usability on a PC like getting to your contacts
> Google+ - Let me type this quick while it's up. Oh look there's all my friends from I'm high school... no that's that other site :-(
> Google music (try and get a simple text list of your music by artist)
> Support - The community HELL of https://support.google.com/ that is one atom better than a bulletin board from 1996
I've not forgotten to take my meds or anything. Maybe I'm just manstruating. But the Google storage experience from last night has just put me over the edge. I'd PAY GOOD money for their services if they just worked like you'd expect them to.
It's not me Google. It's you.
Thank God for the expertise of the author and the deep contributions of the expert commenters!!!
Now the picture of me from my 45th birthday party that resides on my NAS has NO chance of falling in to the hands of the Russins (no?) Poles (not them either?) Afghans(really?! not them either???) Americans!!!
Do you guys have any idea what would happen if that picture got out?!?!? I'm going to encrypt it; right after I share it publicly unencrypted on Google+
I AM IN CONTROL!!! (And 40 other myths.)

Are you high???
Wait. You're suggesting carving, ehem, 'bundling' my internet content like my FORMER cable company bundled channel packages? The one where I want 7 channels but HAVE TO BUY 3-FREAKING-HUNDRED CHANNELS?!?!?!?
That's the whole reason for the cut the cord movement. I PROUDLY and with great fiscal responsibility no longer subscribe - indenture myself - to CTV.
ARE YOU HIGH?!?!?!?!?
Re: Foxconn Rebrander sets fire to tables
Lenovo was never 'the' manufacturer of ThinkPads for IBM and further it bought the entire PCD (Personal Computing Division) from IBM, not just the brand. That consisted of the people, the processes, the brand, the logo and other typical business assets e.g. real estate, dies, machinery, intellectual property etc.
In order to to avoid a hard stop of manufacturing and to ease the customer transition, Lenovo was grated limited license to continue to use the "Eight Bar Rainbow" version of the IBM logo for a set period of time after legal consideration was made between Lenovo and IBM. Lenovo did not use the full allotment of that window.

How it verx...
You only see your stream. Yes, your stream is comprised of other folks' published content, but unless Bob reshares all of Joe's content then you haven't described a problem. Further, Joe may not even allow for his content to be reshared. Out of thousands of posts and replies to date, I think I've reshared < 10 pieces of content and certainly not from the same source.
I believe part of the reason Google gets static is because they unapologetically use failure as a means of discovery. Nexus 1 distribution model, Wave, (Android or Chrome; pick one 'cause one's going to die) etc.
It is hard to wrap your head around this concept in when we've created a consumerist environment that prizes only instant, perfect exceeded expectations and punishes mere goodness.
This is the bounty of uber-profitability. It guarantees constant iterative progress with yummy milestones along the way.
So often failures are used as arrows; what a dis-incentive to persistence. Google's found the magic in harvesting and mining failure as the building blocks for success.

Explanation for you
First, I'm an Assange fan.
OK, Woodward and Bernstein uncovered illegal activity executed by the RNC (sanctioned by Tricky Dick himself), specifically the Watergate Break-in. They revealed illegal activity.
Wikileaks and by proxy Assange is publishing classified/secret information. IF he were a US citizen, he would be charged with espionage or the like. In this case he has broken a US law, BUT the point is moot as US Law doesn't apply to non-US citizens (at least not at this moment...)
So the difference is night and day.
I'm a male American. And hypothetically if I were a cross-dresser, I would keep my size 32 Hello Kitty thong more secure than the US Gvt. keeps its classified docs. But hey - just today the military has prohibited removable media from its super secret network... on days that don't end in "Y".
Hugs - with reeeeeeeeaaaallllly long arms (we all have 'em in the US),

Please help me get poor performance
I've been trying to load the Fragmentation Ninja app but can't find it on the Android Market? Same thing with the Angry Poor Performance Burds app. No where to be found.
Can someone help me find these?
Until I do, I'll have to put up with a fully customizable phone (my Droid X) that - as a customer, uh the people that finance the whole enchilada - does everything I want it to do, how I want it to do it and with Z.E.R.O. lag.
I just won't be satisfied until I find this fragmentation and poor performance I keep hearing about.
Damn. Missed Guy Fawkes day again!
