I love Google. Okay, there, I said it. I love the way they do things. I love their innovative (and relatively open) approach to how they do things. I love the name. I love the name of the place they are located (Mountain View. I mean, what a cool-sounding name). If I was 12 years old (and sans serious commitment issues), I WOULD MARRY GOOGLE.
So when the Chromebook came out a few months ago, I took a look at the reviews. (Duh. Did I mention I love Google?) Not extremely positive.400 USD for a web browser appliance seemed a little high. Sure, I know the Chromebook is more than a web browser. But not much. Still, I would have bought one. Until I read that it has no Bluetooth. Now, I don't know how you feel about bluetooth, but I LOVE it. Until it's replaced with, say, Greenteeth (or whatever they call the next rev), I'll stick with it as my short range communication protocol for nearly everything COOL in my life. Thank you very much.
Okay, so I'm reading this review at ZDNet about the Chromebook and how it's dropping in price (no surprise there, btw). I'm thinking, "Tell me it has bluetooth! Tell me it has bluetooth!" Nope. no bluetooth.
How can Google so seriously miss the boat on this? No bluetooth? No ethernet port? I mean, my Android phone has bluetooth, so don't tell me it's a space issue!
Are you getting a Chromebook? How much would you pay? Did I mention it has no bluetooth capability?
