Chromebook is no tablet-killer
Consumed => “The Chromebook: It’s like an iPad, but with a keyboard” By Matt Baxter-Reynolds on ZDNet.
For the need it intends to meet it sounds nice. But I’m not seeing the comparison to a tablet. I’m not going to slip this into my pocket—or stealthly hide it within a magazine—and take it on a train, bus, etc. Interesting idea, still. But not a table killer.
Also, it has zero hipster factor. The sooner Google* picks up on this important “feature” of products— it took Microsoft too long—the better off Google will be. Until then Google will an advertising company, not a (consumer) products company.
*Yes, I know this is not a Google manufacture product.
