Chrome – a – Chrome

I recently purchased a Chromebook.  It’s the 720 with the touch screen.  My teenage son eschews such things – mostly (I believe) because there’s no horsepower for video games.  It appeals to me now however, because, well- the bulk of what I’m donig with any given computer right now- is online.

It’s taking a little getting used to.  I feel like I should be downloading apps for it.  But primarily, no – it’s a browser.    It IS it’s own app.

Some people don’t like it because they feel that Google and Amazon are taking over everything.  To that I say — HUZZAH!  If Amazon and Google run as co-candidates for Prez-VeePee – I’m voting that way!  They certainly can’t fuck up the economy and the environment any worse than the current sitch.

So here I type-a-dee type on my UBERFAST chromebook.  Sending you this important information over the interbleg-iddy-blogs.   Info you need- RIGHT NOW!

So far – I love it.  It’s like a C3P0 in a compact.  It sleeps when it needs to, then pos up at a moments notice.  Ready to serve!  I predict that I will be smitten with it for quite some time.  It ain’t no typewriter of course, but hey!  Very few machines can be perfect.

  1. I’ve been thinking about one of these for a while for, as you say, for “uberfast” no-fuss internet browsing and blogging. Are you using Google Docs with it? (As a point of principle, I generally wait until the price drops before investing in new technology – that usually means it’s not new technology by the time I buy it.
