Hey Jono what do you think about the Chromebook?
I guess people are expecting me to have an opinion on this Google Chromebook thing? It's a laptop that you rent for $20 a month and that only runs Chrome.
I remember back in 2004 I was guessing that eventually we would have web-browser-only computers, since almost everything non-geeks do with a computer these days is through a web browser, and an all-purpose operating system is a high-maintenance resource-hogging beast that provides no value when there's only one application you want. So actually I'm kind of surprised it took this long for one to emerge. (I guess "netbooks" were an intermediate step?)
If you're expecting a rant, well, sorry, I have no strong feelings either way. I wouldn't use one myself, but there's nothing evil about it. It will make sense for some people and not make sense for others and the people who want one will get one. Meh.
