Had a funny Chromebook incident while waiting for my plane in Boise this week. Just as I'm about to get in line to board, I notice the guy sitting across from me is using a graphite colored laptop with very sharp features. "No, it can't be," I think, but I do a double-take and indeed it's a Pixel. I get up, approach the guy (pretty young 20-something) and say "Hey buddy, you're cool." He looks up perplexed and mutters, "well, you're cool too." By now, I realize he thinks I'm a nut so I quickly say, "I love your Pixel." Then I whip out the S550 in my bag, complete with big Chrome sticker on the lid, and tell him I'm a Chromie too and that I've got a Pixel at home, but am travelling with my backup since I'll be at a conference where the risk of 'loss' is higher. Anyway, we both smile, say our goodbyes and I go off to my plane as he returns to his work.
Sadly, I didn't see another Chromebook among the 200 or so IT and finance people at my conference, but be assured, we're spreading.
Just had to share.
