Chromebooks do allow you to install Linux http://www.chromebook-linux.co... just flip a switch.
Or maybe because it might as well be built in the USA http://www.hondainamerica.com/manufacturing
You still are tracked. Most bridges and toll booths have cameras.
You can install the same pepper plugin from Chrome into chromium.
Chrome OS just screams out for usecases like this.
Why is it so hard to prove than NP = P?

Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) have finally passed 10 percent share of the droid’s pie, while Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is nearing the 30 percent mark. Best of all though, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is finally on less than half of devices, and Android 2.2 (Froyo) has fallen under the 10 percent mark."

An anonymous reader writes "Right on schedule, Microsoft on Thursday announced its usual advance notification for the upcoming Patch Tuesday. While the company is planning to release seven bulletins (two Critical and five Important) which address 12 vulnerabilities, there is one that is notably missing: a bulletin for the new IE vulnerability discovered on Saturday. For those who didn't see the news on the weekend, criminals started using a new IE security hole to attack Windows computers in targeted attacks. While IE9 and IE10 are not affected, versions IE6, IE7, and IE8 are."
OTG is supported, just drive automountig is not enabled.
Did you read the MS-PL? The licence they are using to release it includes a patent grant, and a potential protection on patent suits.
Seriously, a russian guy presenting a semi-obscure OS is news today, seems like a really slow news day for slashdot.
cats.lol does not have the same ring to it sadly...
I am surprised to see that much ruckus about this "OpenSignalMaps" when Wigle http://wigle.net/ already existed for a while, and has more than 61 million networks recorded around the world. I do know they don't have the fancy Web2.0 website, but they have been doing this before that even got popular...
