Made my day. Or at least the middle part of it.
I grew up on Unix. First in Saudi Arabia, where I used the very early version of the email (web was still a ways away). Then after MBA school when I worked at SGI (strictly speaking Irix). I miss those simple days at times.

On that note... One of my favorite Dilbert strips....

Chromebook vs MacBook Air

I'm trying to compare how a Chromebook 11" will perform relative to a MacBook Air 11".

I spend most of my time in Google Drive apps, and I tend to have 10 or more tabs open at any given time. I also do a lot of video conferencing and screen sharing while doing online tool demos on WebEx. 

I'm assuming the Air will have better performance, but am curious if it's even close, or if I should even consider the 11" Chromebook, given I'm doing live demos of an online app over WebEx (I'm assuming that's the most taxing of my tasks).

So if there's legit way to compare these two, I'd appreciate any input. 

Device info below:

CHROMEBOOK
Intel® Celeron® Processor N2830 (2.16GHz)
2GB of DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics

The more things change ...
The point of view that our phones are making us anti-social (or dumber!) is quite persistent. There are even some pretty incisive quotes (see my post from yesterday). 

But. As the below composite reminds us... Humans have always been humans. Technology has brought information faster to us, allowed us more distractions. But, we might not be behaving quite as differently as many believe.
