I just read a review about the latest chromebook that was shown at CES. it totally pans the new chromebook and I can't really fault it. most of us were hoping for a solid reboot or even an ultrachromebook. instead we get something not much different than what we have with a slightly better but rather underwhelming upgrade to the processor. I was digging on the chromebox except for the specs.... for the same reason.... not much of a reboot. they are sweet looking and I imagine they do work a little faster. but really.... rather a letdown I must say.
google? when is the good stuff coming? is it coming at all?

well, I am back in seattle again. I have some thoughts for those who complain about offline use. it's bollocks. I was only without connection 2 times. flying there and flying back. I had videos to watch (on a thumb drive) books to read (on offline kindle) and ways to write poetry while I flew (scratchpad, a perfectly acceptable word processor lite) ... for all practical purposes I had no downtime at all with the chromebook at all except intentional downtime while i was with my family.
