@nickmgray fair point, Nick. A more helpful breakdown would be the number of current-gen phones that are running the latest version of Android, but this is the best proxy we have.

@bydavidrosen My work relies heavily on MS Office (my real work, not my freelance writing job), so there's no way I could really use a Chromebook. Even my writing gig needs Photoshop and sometimes Primiere, so I'm kind of screwed there too.

@bydavidrosen @Haloruler64 ha, yeah. I build computers and got my dad into it. Now he builds more machines than I do, and is always gabbering on about the latest part he's bought. When it comes to the internet, he uses IE and has msn.com as his homepage. UGH.
@bydavidrosen Do your macbook pro and pc have little issues/complications here and there with browsers? or with other programs? All my computers run browsers like a champ, though Chrome often crashes ;).
And yes, I used the original CR-48, though I haven't splurged on a Chromebook since. I'm sure I could make it work for like 50% of what I do, but not everything.
@bydavidrosen @Haloruler64 ha, yeah but at that point it's a bit ironic. The Chromebook is the perfect computer for people who've never used anything other than Internet Explorer. :)
@bydavidrosen there's no chromeOS software. It's a browser-box. A very pretty browser box, but just a browser box.
I'm sure this comment will get deleted, but you simply could have said "minorities" instead of "African Americans and Latinos." The phrase you used fails to recognize that these are but a few of the thousands of racial identities in the world, and that even people in those categories don't always identify as being "African American" or "Latino/a."

@phone services Looking at about $640 (3990 Yen) in China. No word on what it'll be when or if it comes to North America.

@techgress4life Thanks, Nick. I love that livefyre pulls in your profile picture so I know it's you. You are my dev, after all ;)

@DavidBeren @Spoken Word I love it when people think that every single post in the history of the internet doesn't have the goal of generating pageviews. How do you think websites make money?

Two weeks isn't enough time. There's too much of an air of "soonness" in your challenge. You should do a month or two.
