Ironically this blog post is written on Firefox on my Computer versus my Chrome browser on my Chromebook because I could not capture or insert images in the wordpress editor.
I know I have my Chromebook about a week early. It is pretty obvious because the boys at Google are not ready for us yet. When I went over to Picasa the site thought I was a Linux machine and asked me to download some Linux RPM file.
Also when you visit the Chrome Web Store and try and install some apps they kinda get confused. I installed a screen capture app made by Google. It will capture the image but it kinda like gets lost when trying to figure out where to save it.
These are the big things Google is going to have to solve and like yesterday. If I install an App from the Chrome Web Store it better work on the Chrome OS aka Chromebook if it doesn’t it just is gonna piss people off.
So here is my advice to Google, flag the apps that will work well with the Chromebooks and hide the rest. I surely do not want to have to figure it out myself..
If these little things can be fixed, then the developers can also see what is missing and start designing apps for the Chromebook and the Chrome OS
I received the Samsung Chromebook today and thought I would do a quick unboxing. Had a little screen glare during parts of it but we will get it hooked up to the tricaster for future screen demos.
So far so good but I have discovered one major issue, it fails to connect to my main wireless router in the house on my high speed connection. It will connect to my secondary connections no problem but I have no idea why it refuses to connect to my main connection.
The data plans are not as generous as the iPad, Verizon is offering 1gb for $9.99 per month. There is no 2gb plan at all. I picked the 1gb plan to see how far it will really take me.
Bootup after setup is 3-4 seconds tops.
I look forward in seeing how far we can go with the Chrome OS on “The Chrome Show” launching here in a few days!
In the coming weeks we will be launching a new show here called “The Chrome Show” it will cover everything about ChromeBooks and the Chrome OS. I have a place marker for the master site at TheChromeShow.com Do you have a passion for the cloud or want to learn more about how the Chrome OS is going to change computing we hope to be your number one stop for everything Chrome!
