Google Chrome CR-48 Netbook (Notebook) – Opening the Box

Ok, so my wife got a Google Chrome Notebook (also known as the CR-48). But that counts as me getting one, because according to God and the government, we are one entity. Right?  Plus she lets me log on to it every now and then and agreed to let me blog about it…

That’s how the beginning of this post was supposed to go, when I started working on it 6 weeks ago and never finished. The funny thing is, I put off writing the post long enough to get my own Google Chrome OS Notebook! That’s right, I’m not kidding.  We are now a 2 Google Notebook family. I’m not sure what went wrong in the science behind Google’s distribution algorithm but that means 2 were shipped to the same address. And that means I’m a lucky buzzard. So I figured I better get on it with the whole “sharing this info with the world” thing. And by world, I mean the 3 readers that accidentally end up on my blog (hi guys!) Watch for future posts on usability, bugs, etc.

This post is the un-boxing of the Google Chrome Notebook CR-48.

Top 5 MLK Quotes – My Favorites

In honor of a man who impacted the culture of an entire nation, my 5 favorite Martin Luther King Jr. Quotes:

  1. A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.
  2. Whatever your life’s work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.
  3. Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
  4. I have also decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind’s problems. And I’m going to talk about it everywhere I go.
  5. Reason, devoid of purifying power of faith, can never free itself from distortions and rationalizations.
