give us an update after a months use. The way I see it, the internet as we know it is gone. Like the radios that took 3-minutes before it started working. or TVs that took a minute before you saw a picture. What's really going to do in msft, etal, is the recent revelations that they kowtowed to the crooks to make it easy for them to reprogram your computer and gain control of it without you even knowing it. The outcry has already started in europe and will spread around the world against windows. We probably won't even recognize all the trappings of the internet age in its infancy. Just as we don't recognize the pioneers of the past like Zenith, RCA Victor, etal. That will probably apply to the cable companies too, who keep track of everything you watch and when. What commercials you don't channel surf through, etc. Basically humans will always be humans. So following that through on that thought; Our government has basically done what the wisdom of Solomon did not. Split this baby in two. And when one thinks about it, who needs more than 16-gigs to send an e-mail, surf the web, or watch a streaming movie. I would hate to think anyone with a PC would actually store private info, then hook it all up to the web. On the bright side, I can plug in my radio, turn it on, and get instant access to relevant, comprehensive news.
he's been trumpeting his chromebook for quite a while now. well over a month. nice idea to have him report more details on the experience tho.
also consider that there is nothing in it for msft to kowtow to criminal gangs who rob users of their o.s. so the ability for crooks to use the o.s. against the users is much more likely just a result of incompetence rather than a plan of any sort. not fixing it further demonstrates incompetence. it's not like they don't have the quantity of personnel and money. yet they can't get it done.
