google working on alternate internet?

according to a new post over at engadget, there’s a possibility that google is working on a cheap pc called the “google cube” that runs on “the googlenet”, an alternate internet devised by google and running off of google’s massive amount of bandwidth.  i’ve heard many rumours like this, including that “goobuntu” rumour over at the register that turned out to be a hoax, but i’ve also thought that google should release a product like this for a while.  also, i think engadget has a great deal more credibility than the register does.  i take all of their posts with a grain of salt.

despite all this, the chances are that google comes out and denies the rumour once it starts snowballing.  no fair. 😦
