Chromebook will be so Awesome!
Having a chromebook will be so awesome!
So long as you don't have BT as your internet provider or wholesale internet provider. (Tiny usage caps)
Or so long as you don't have to rely on 3G coverage which is pretty flaky
Or as long as you didn't want to do any capture or editing of video
Or so long as you didn't want to be able to zoom the document you were working on to fit the width of the page (global zoom will mess up the interface), you know, like you do in Word.
I do like Google stuff, I have a Nexus One android phone. I do see the appeal of a Google DumbBook, but even if I bought this for my Nan she'd be asking why it wasn't working and where her email had gone to when she wondered into a signal dead spot.
It's a lovely idea, but ahead of it's time. Neither the web apps nor network infrastructure are going to make using this device fun just at the moment.
On the other hand, maybe it will make some really kick as web-apps happen. Oh wait! We still have to code for IE7 & 8. Never mind then.
