The check has cleared, yep thats final clearance as well. Double secret final clearance, well now that you ask there seems to be a 3 week hold on the check for irregularities.

This issue goes beyond Nigerian scam, a paypal payment can appear in your account but later be reversed days afterwards. How many ebay sellers wait a week to ship after payment? Certainly not me.

The study used IE 8, IE 9 (beta), Chrome 6. IE 8 still performed orders of magnitude better than chrome 6. That is stable to stable, apples to apples.

Studies take time. I doubt chrome has radically changed their social security in the last three months and neglected to say anything. GDP statistics take months to produce, yet they are extremely useful.

I am skeptical of this study, but not for your reasons

Gears or HTML5 allow for offline use of apps that will sync with the cloud once reconnected. Gears has been used in google docs for years.

To me the advantage of Chrome OS is an easy, cheap, secure computer. It would be great for my parents who seem to get a incredible amount of viruses just from browsing the web. Granted it wont replace their current PC.
