Google's $120 Million Secret Lab Project [telegraph.co.uk]
Google has begun a $120million project at its California headquarters to build a major new test facility. The new facility, which is already under construction, will include buildings that are screened against external radio waves and can be used to test advanced new wireless projects for the home. Other experiments will look at the use of rare gases and innovative optical coatings.

The company has already demonstrated new concepts for the ‘Android@Home’ brand, which would allow users of Google mobile phones to control light switches, music systems and domestic appliances.

Google is also reportedly modifying a separate lab as part of its advanced ‘Project X’ scheme and is set to include as yet unspecified ‘precision optical technology’. It is also building new anechoic and thermal chambers to test sound and radiation patterns.

Next step to world domination. ;)

I don't think I would trust Google's radio waves in my house.

I relate this to the "all in one" units: fax/printer/copier. If one part breaks, you lose the whole thing. Google's motives aside, relying on one company to "bundle" all your services and information is simply foolish. One crash, hack, or possibly one error on your part, and you are screwed. There is that great old expression which everyone should keep in mind: don't put all you eggs in one basket.
