ONLamp.com: Bosworth's Web of Data

ONLamp.com: Bosworth's Web of Data:
"Google's Adam Bosworth suggested that we 'do for information what HTTP
did for user interface.' Ten years ago, when he first started paying
attention to the web, he was interested in the idea that he could zero
install applications and that they could be accessed from anywhere at
any time. He said that a personal computer to him is like a phone: it
is a useful access point but it is not where he stores stuff."
Does google believe Sun's old slogan of "The network is the computer"? Is that what the google browser is about. Are they going to release a network appliance which has their software on it (The Gbrowser and so forth?) Sure looks like it to me. And it will probably sell. All those people tired of viruses, spyware and so forth should welcome such a solution. This is pure speculation on my part.
