Google Inc, the uncontested leader in Internet services announced it has shipped its 5 millionth “free” computer, only 14 months after starting up the “Free Computer Program”. The Google Product Manager, Pierre Lindsely, stated he is overwhelmed by the success of his project and they are trying very hard to keep up with demand.

People now have to wait more than three weeks to get their “G-Tops”, as they have become known as, instead of the three days when the program started. Pierre Lindsely: “People will wait for anything if it’s free, so I am not worried that this will impact the enthusiasm for this product. We are attracting some new suppliers and we will see the waiting time decrease gradually.” The free Google computers come with a free broadband connection that connects only to Google WI-FI hubs (aka as G-Spots).

Interactive Mirror from Alpay Kasal on Vimeo.

If there’s one thing guaranteed to to touch your child side but also appeal to your geek side, Interference Inc has done just that. This fully interactive mirror allows users to design, paint, and even read text on a touchscreen mirror. The most amazing thing is vast array of colors at the users fingertips — whites, blues, red, and an incredible neon green.

Don’t expect to see these in your home for another year or two (and only if you happen to have a wad of cash hanging around). It will be incredible to see these displays used in a more consumer sense as far as personal computing or even retail. The mirror allows for you to virtually try on different articles of clothing right there in the store. A unit at home will allow you to literally “surf” the web, the sensation being that you can push your way through the Internet with touches. When can I get one?
