The Google logo's there because the My Book hard drives ship with Google software.

Maybe Google is going to release an OS soon?

Agreed with Dan. You can even see near the top of the box, that it includes Google software.

It has that sticker because the hard drive comes with the Google Pack.

You guys are right, maybe the sticker is just placed in unfortunate ways, right at the compatibility section...

On another note, I had to uninstall quite a bit of Google stuff on this Sony Vaio laptop I'm using. It's not often you consider Google tools to clutter your life but when you have stuff like Google Desktop, Google browser URL redirector, Google Earth (I think?), that's starting to change... wonder what kind of strategic partnerships were behind this.

I just bought a new Vaio, came with Google Earth, Google Desktop, and
Picasa out of the box.

From tech specs of the product:

Am I missing something out here. Harddisk is a hardware and Google is in the internet. How in the world are they supposed to be considering compatibility when the question should not arrive in the first place?

Compatible by able to be indexed by Google Desktop and Picasa.

WD acts like they are "giving away" the already "free" Google software. They rather should give some good back-up software.

What Google software? XP version, or Max OS version ... or all? Just rip of my space of the new hard disk.

Oh, poor Google, you has become such unfortunate religion.

I think we can expect a GDrive sooner than you might think...

Wow, I am still wondering what does it mean to be Google compatible. Last time I checked Google was a company not a product and even then most of their products are services ... mmm, so it goes the advertisements ...
