So you would rather have the Microsoft ad/spy ware? The answer is don't buy this device unless you want a ChromOS box. ChromeOS is really great for what it is. This would be a perfect system form my dad.
ChromeOS is perfect for Grandma.
I was behind someone last week that bout 6 strawberry shortcake popsicles on her EBT card at a convenience store for $2.25 each.

I work in technical support for an ISP. One of the things I must know, natch, is what OS they're using. In cases where it's XP, I will inform (or, as the case is sometimes, remind) them that Microsoft will be ending all support for their OS of choice, and that now is the time to upgrade. My one regret is that these users have waited so long, resulting in that they must now upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Well, OK, they can probably get a copy of Win 7 from Newegg or somesuch.
I bet it's a rectangular solids whose dimensions are in the precise ratio of 1 : 4 : 9....
I make a ratatouille that is to die for.
I think it's time to abolish time zones all together. In reality most of the world works off of UTC. Displaying different offset times only confuses things. Maybe it made sense in the 1800s but not anymore with the global economy.
It's the latest SI prefix.
So true. I was very surprised to learn that lithium batteries have an energy density in the same ballpark as gunpowder and dynamite. Small wonder that one of them cutting loose and letting all that power go at once is a big deal.
> A lithium-air battery has an energy density (per kilo) comparable to traditional gasoline
It's still got problems to overcome, but the point is, battery storage is only getting better.
If solar energy were dirt cheap but batteries were still for shit, then yeah, using H2 as a storage medium wouldn't be so bad. However, both PVCs and batteries are getting better all the time. The latest lithium-air batteries actually have the same energy density as gasoline. H2's density is still better of course, but has a host of storage problems that make even a lesser storage system more appealing.
On the pads, not phones. Too damned early on a Monday.
