I think it just didnt fit the theme of people and life. Also, I could imagine memes could take over the site. Still, I'd like to see the examples of awesome things the chromebook does.

Why I believe in randomness

My phone number is +1-425-205-1921

Yes, this is my cell phone. I often get calls from people who don't believe it is.

Sometimes I have to sit through a horrid pitch or two. They actually aren't that bad. Yes, I get robocalls once in a while. Those are actually easier to deal with than a horrid pitch (I just hang up after about two seconds since it's so easy to tell).

But invariably lots of good things happen to me too.

If I didn't take random pitches I would never have seen +Flipboard before any of my friends. I never would have seen Highlight, which is looking to lead this year's hot trend at SXSW (it has a whole slew of competitors, including Glancee, Sonar, and others).

And tonight +Shane Barnhill and his wife are coming over because it's too windy at the Ritz. He's digital strategist at Honeywell and I bet that'll be an interesting conversation.

It's why I still believe in randomness and being open with my life.

Well, at minimum I was saved from an evening of bad TV. Maybe we'll do a hangout if we have enough wine! :-)

Snagged a #chromebook  or #chromebox  for Christmas? Lucky you. 

Learn all about your new shiny over at Chromebook Central! (Might I suggest you start with this thread: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/chromebook-central/SqeOMiC99fo/discussion

In this thread, we cover questions like:

- Can I install my existing software on Chromebooks?
- Can I install any browser other than Chrome?
- Will Chromebooks support Flash, Java, Silverlight, and other plug-ins?
- How do I print from a Chromebook?
- How do I stream music from my Chrome OS device / use iTunes? 

Ready? Set? GO!

Get it while it's hot!
 
The new +Acer #Chromebook is now available on Google Play http://goo.gl/peX9t in the US for $199 and in the UK for £199. It’s a hassle-free computer, perfect for sharing, with the simplicity of automatic updates and security built-in.
