  1. Didn't know about Chrome as an OS, this blog is very promising, I'll be following

  2. I'm very curious to see one of these in person, I've been hearing a lot about them lately. I think I just listened to something about it on G4.

  3. To me, nothing about this is a good idea...remote backups? sure. Awesome. COMPLETE remote storage? Requiring internet to have your computer even function for basic things?

    The entire concept is stupid.

  4. I can't wait to see the chrome os computer in person! My friend told me about this a while back :D
