It looks like Google could move from being just a software and services company, to a full hardware designer, too. Bloomberg is reporting that Google engineers are possibly working on their own custom server processor, which would feature ARM-based technology, the same technology found inside that Android smartphones and tablets.

 

Google currently designs its own server systems, but making its own processors would make it a near Google-run process. Moving in this direction would lessen its reliance on Intel, which currently chews up most of the server market. Time will tell.
