I can't stand car analogies but I'll bite, what exactly does having a more expensive car have to do with anything when the outcome is exactly the same, the Rio will still get you from point A to point B. Having a 5.5 liter V8 might sound appealing but the majority of people have no idea what to do with all of that power or can even afford it, it's a luxury product, status symbol. Most of us just need to get to our destination. A ChromeBook will most defiantly provide a...
USB stick, copy from one computer to the other, ChromeBooks also have an Ethernet and a Wifi, you could also use the hotspot funtion on your phone but you of course know all of this and are just being silly. In the future, suggest the Huawei E3131, Huawei E367, ZTE MF823 or the FreedomPOP to your customers, they work out of the box. Still the best option though is to just spring for the 3G/4G enabled Chromebook in the beginning, their only 50 to 80 more, a no brainer...
You can completely install Linux on a ChromeBook, dual boot, the works. There are even custom BIOS in which to enhance this experince. Personally I prefer the Chroot, I'm not really sure what you mean by restrictive though, you have complete access to the hardware layer and there isn't anything you can't run in it. As far as I'm concerned, if it looks like a dog, barks like a dog, it's a dog.
Who the heck still uses dial up and yes it actually does if you install the binaries for the drivers. It's just Linux, if the driver exists in Linux it will most likely work in Chrome OS. If your talking about a USB 3G/4G dongle, Chrome OS most defiantly supports them out of the box, not all of the but most, for those that are not supported, again if the driver exists for Linux you could always install it manually, takes like 5 minutes. Instead I've trying to convince...
A little exaggeration, your also talking about the first incarnation from HP, they fixed the tracked with G2, their now on G3. You guys use one device and assume the rest are garbage. My daughter has a G2 14 and it works very well, I'm personally getting the G3 14, with the Nvidia K1, 4GB and 1080p display.
You really do not know what your talking about and defiantly haven't used a ChromeBook. First, not all Chromebooks are junk, in fact it would be pretty hard press to actually find one that is. The HP 11's and 14's for example are absolute tanks and can easily withstand the abuse of any child, including liquid spills. Third party apps, what do you think the 1,000's of web apps are and Chrome OS is starting to integrate Android apps into the system, by mid 2015 almost the...
First, Google doesn't know who the users are, only the school that deploys them do. For instance my daughter logs into her Chromebook with a special email that looks like this, [student ID#]@[school suffix].org, it's not even a Google controlled account. Second, there are no ads displayed anywhere on a ChromeBook, even when the child surfs on public domains, adworks has been completely turned off. There is no tracking of individual data except for general information.
I feel a lot better but still have a long road ahead of me recovery wise. I'm going home in a week for Christmas, I've hired a nursing firm to look in on me during the day. I can't wait, I have a lot of catching up to do, specifically in my little studio. I have been collecting new gear in anticipation for the day I would return. My new desk was installed last week so I can't wait to see it in person, I had the middle section etched out so I could insert my Panasonic 20"...
Right, I mean without an iPhone it would seem kind of a meaningless gadget. I'm still not convinced that SmartWatches are they way of the future anyway. Personally I just couldn't wear something that millions of other people are as well, a watch to me is still jewellery and needs to be at least a little exclusive, even if it does have more functions than just telling time. Until such time that the SmartWatch is completely ambiguous, merged into a mechanical watch like a...
That has nothing to do with DRM, Apple took an opened standard, that really should have been able to play on other systems and made it exclusive to their own platform. They also closed off direct access to their devices file tree, making it very difficult to add media to them without using their software to do so. During the time this lawsuit was filed their devices also only supported those codecs that were used in their iTunes store. It's gotten much better now with the...
