    Is this the first glimpse of the operation to merge ChromeOS and Android?

    Apple is trying to do it with MacOS and iOS, it makes sense!

    Looks like a less polished rendition of Samsung's Dex feature, which Google most likely helped Samsung bring to fruition. It'll be interesting to see where this goes and whether Dex continues to exist as a separate entity, or just gets made redundant by Android's own growing feature-set.

    Pretty sure Samsung will keep pushing their version as part of product differentiation. I'm more curious how this plays against Fuchsia.
