Comment Re:Consumer Reports... (Score 1) 212

True, but it's still more bad press for Apple. If I was in the market for a new laptop (I might have been if there was a 32GB option, now it's time for me to look at a Linux-based laptop), then it would make me think twice. It's not like any consumer actually needs to actively read Consumer Reports, any potential consumer will hear this news from Reddit, Slashdot, Wired, et al.

Ah nice, I haven't bothered to try and use it for a while now as it always used to be the same old "content is not available in your country", that plus the easy availability of private torrents. I'm most interested in the radio drama, so will take a look and see what they're making available. Thanks for the info!

Comment Unique users of Chrome (Score 1) 48

I wonder how many unique users of Chrome though? Google can likely have a fairy good idea of that by the nagging you get to log into it when installing it.

I'm personally responsible for about 16 instances of Chrome across various devices, virtual machines, etc. in my house. Others may not have quite so many instances, but I'd guess that most users have at least two instances of it (computer, phone).
