- So this simple thing that you don't do (or do only twice/yr.) is the basis of your argument against Chromebooks? Or is my ignorance still showing?Jun 6, 2012
- every month i'll shoot a few hundred photos mostly of my kids on my iphone. any cheap $500 or less Windows laptop would have been OK, but i bought a macbook as a gift for my wife. so once a month or so i transfer the photos to the macbook. once in while i print a few for others. one of these days i'm going to go through them all and tag them with names and events.
i have close to 100GB of photos and a few hundred paper photos that i need to scan in one of these days. unless apple or google gives me free cloud storage for them all i'm not planning on putting them into the cloud.
and long list of other things i do with ios, android and windows that's offline and why i like to carry a few hundred GB of storage with me. and for cloud storage i mostly use dropboxJun 6, 2012
- Just so everyone knows, Chrome OS ships with a Picasa photo uploader and at least the Series 5 550 has 2 USB ports and an SD slot for importing media like photos. Granted you wouldn't store them locally...but if you want to do that, clearly a cloud-centric OS (nay, cloud-centric way of life) is not your cup of tea anyway.Jun 6, 2012
- Google+ with instant upload from iOS = no more "once a month or so I transfer photos to..."Jun 6, 2012

- There are so many stupid sheep, any company would try to rally the Apple herd.Jun 15, 2012
