“Chromebase” Google? Seriously? You Couldn’t Find A Better Name?

I usually do not ran here. But here goes one, because I couldn’t help it.

I was writing about the new Chrome OS “All in One” announced by LG today, and I asked myself, “Chromebase? is that the best they could come up with as a name?”

They called laptops running Chrome OS “Chromebooks” which was ok, if not awesome or cool. Then they launched Chromeboxes, well, they were boxes indeed, so I thought, fine, whatever.

And then Chromecast, which was  named after the Google service which it uses “Google Cast” Again, boring, but not that bad.

And today, I see a beautifully designed LG All in One device running Chrome OS, and they call it ‘Chromebase”

I mean, come on guys, you guys design cool looking websites, apps and even devices. Why didn’t you guys spend an hour or two brainstorming for a better name?


PS: I do not think this name was picked by LG, the OEM making this new device. Just like Chromebook and Chromeboxes, this is  a new product category in my opinion.

Dinsan made Google Chrome his default browser within hours of its release. He fell in love with Chromebooks from the day he first touched one and is currently obsessed with Chromecasts.
