A fantastic device, Lite, Huge battery life, Yes you can install Linux (To run concurrently with chrome OS) as the both run as VM's, But i find that the Chromebook does everything i need as is, Ctrl-ALT-T and i can ssh into another device. Via the browser i can do most things, and if i need to do some real work, I switch to a desktop as laptops just don't cut the mustered for me no matter what the OS when it comes to developing software (testing Yes) but not developing.
It's fast, Cheap, stylish with great battery life.
If you ain't tried one give it a go, i paid £250 for my HP 14 Best laptop i've had ever and my first was a mitac 286 !
Unless one side can completly eradicate 100% of the other side by means of extream violence. then the only option is to negotiate for peace. the side with the best resourses will be looked down on for its unfair kill rate and the side with the least resourses will pay the victim card. the only solution is to negotiate for peace or this will go on and on and on.
Std Dirty tricks by tory boys of the westminster clan
it was on STV to reduce the audience, when given the choice of a global blue chip broadcaster in the form of the BBC or a micky mouse 2 bit opperation like STV what did westminster choose, Remeber folks they don't want us to leave, the secret service has a remit to protect the UK, Dirty tricks are comming in thick and fast these days. But those south of the border will have no knowledge of this as this is part of the device and conqure that's being used agianst the citizents of the UK by westminster for years, how else do you explain the fact that in a democracy most of the ruling elite all went to the same skool !
I got board of waiting
Now i can control my aquarium lights from my phone via a raspberry pi, Still a dam site cheaper that the other solutions being offered by BIG-CORP-INC and much more fun to code and build :)
Can't believe you guys missed it !
Large hole appears, The authorities are looking into it !
Is their a list ?
Of the MP that did not sign the Bill ?
May just about work
Then you install the Anti Virus/ Anti Malware / Identity Protection / etc and the machine fails to boot due to lack of resources !
Bought an HP 14 chrome book
Bought an HP 14 chrome book about 6 month ago, Best buy in a long time, Instant on well built,
You can install linux no problem, although out of the box it does all that's required for consuming the web and a bit of document writing, well worth a punt.
RE traditionally separates would be swapped out over time
When amps go bad, Did it start playing Justin Beeber ?
Battery switch !

Would it not be better to rewire the house lighting ring for 12V
1 transformer at the fuse box !
They put IDS in charge of the Pedofile parties in the 80's so many would have been saved
Back in the day
It was not always this way, Back when a 404 error existed in one place, tit interwebs was a place to hide from the madness of celebrity, where information flow from one person to another and gained something on the way,
Me I blame AOL and all these disks the sent out, even if 1 in 100 fools managed to get the disk in the correct slot the correct way up, eventually the fools would take over !
RE Cheap Chinese Androids
I have tried these Android sticks and they are good if you want to run android on your telly, But the pi lets you play in the "real" world. The GPIO is the killer PI function, My first attempt was a Doorbell (ok 1 switch) but it's been running for well over a year now, Plays AC/DC when pressed (Don't you have a sub woofer on your doorbell) tweets Just coz it can and pushes a message to my phone. all completely useless functionality, but functionality that i can build my self, Now im working on switching 12 volt dc supplies to control the lighting on my fishtank. learning electronics and never board. as for the comment about the same pinout on the GPIO great i can use this without redesigning my hardware, Think apple (ooohgh i know) but iplop dock are everywhere as their just the one (ish) to implement.
look on the bright side
I've just discovered i can run my raspberry pi from a pc power supply on standby. And fire it up fully when i want to use more power.
Money grabbing fraudsters impersonate Government sites,
How do you tell the difference ?
Re: Informed consent?
Of course it would work, Just offer them the chance of £100 of Tesco/next/argos vouchers if they click like. Or a cheap pair of raybands lol

Won't this make landing aircraft quite tricky ?
Re: Mmmh, its definitely a cock-up when it becomes world-wide news ....

Surely it the 10 Downing Street Broadcasting Corporation, As nothing that ever happens is ever reported on their so called news programs !
Chromebooks are for consumption
Chromebooks are for consuming the web, Facebook, Netflix, Spotify , Youtube etc
Not for actually doing anything productive on !
Oh and they are bloody good for consuming the web too !
Since this is an MS Product
I take it you'll need 1 for each contact on your contact list, How else would you tell which one it's from !
Hold on we just spent how much on a phone hacking trial
Hold on we just spent how much on a phone hacking trial ?
When we had the technology infrastructure and unless our security services are seriously incompetent the evidence in place,
If the correct information had been presented to the trial then all the "Defendants" may have really got what they deserved, at a fraction of the price that we were charged,
I just can't see the value of this if we don't use it !
re Just a couple of critical questions...
There's always bloody one ! lol
It better be one hell of a selfie !

Re: If history repeats, we can expect Windows Phone to top the charts in about 2030. ®

People don't really use the REAl names do they, What are they teaching them in Schools these day!
Your missing the point.
With a star trek type transporter, you could be rebuild (destination end) With a body alcohol rating of your choice and even with a half chewed mouthful of bacon roll in your mouth, and a reference liver / kidney / lungs / heart. Think bigger my friends !
Re Up North
I though i saw Van Morrison in my rear view mirror this morning on the way into work, Then i remembered things are reversed in the mirror and it was a Morrisons Van, So they do do transport !
This is not about Music streaming, Apple have just bought one of the worlds largest sucker lists, now they can sell icrap to all the beats victims !
As a Linux guy, not wanting to give MS any more money and not stupid enough to pay thru the nose for apple products , I thought i'd give the chrome book a try, Not disappointed in the least.
It took me 2 months before i installed linux, That's how useful chrome is. then it confused me as i had spotify playing on linux and tabbed back into chrome only to find that Spotify was still playing !
Yip Chrome runs on a VM and so does Linux so you can have the best of both worlds at the same time.
as you already know everyone and their brother are spying on you, but at least google gives you some decent hardware.
This product has now been officially compromised !

Look your giving money to Murdoch. Your are funding his evilness

I personally delete all emails from either domains automatically.
I want nothing to do with people so shallow that they will fund these
sort of organisations.
PS remember that paying tax directly funds Governments !
I now going to have to squint in 3d to try an guess what the little one has created and attached to the cat,dog, or gold fish !
Re Stuart Longland
I only down voted you to prove i'm Different :)
What we really need is a new crime of Fuckwittery in public office, Punishable by complete eradication of you DNA from the Gene pool, That would cut down on all this crap !
Did we not have them in the 70's ?
a yacht !
If he had studied the offshore platforms in any detail, He would be aware that each installation would have a 500m exclusion zone and a Yacht would under no circumstances be aloud within this zone.
Still plenty of work for the ROV crews inspecting the structure,
It's Not officially a Friday,
But due to the seasonal nature of this week it is.
