Google Mini: Can Cute Cut It?
Google's adorably small search appliance stands out in server rooms.While its name is synonymous with searching the Web (just look in the dictionary), Google hasnt quite made the same kind of inroads when it comes to search in corporate environments. Who knows? Maybe Google is just too cute for its own good. Its Google Search Appliances, which are designed to provide search to huge Web sites and company intranets, come in bright yellow and orangehues that tend to stand out in predominantly gray, black and silver server rooms.
But Google had better hope that cute isnt the problem because the bright blue and adorably small Google Mini appliance that eWEEK Labs is currently testing puts Rankin/Bass Rudolph to shame. (I can see the headline now: "The Google Mini is cute! eWEEK Labs thinks the Google Mini is cute!")
