Sorry, I don't give a rat's a$$ for this. The cable tv can charge anything they want, I am not buying. You don't like it, don't buy it. It is not a human necessity to have cable. Entirely optional. I have not had cable for 25 years (except for brief 1 month periods every 4 years for the world cup). Stop whining and get a life.
This is incredible... why in the world would I want to allow a single-point compromise (i.e., hacked phone) result in total control of all of my accounts? Creepy and stupid. I really think google developers are out of control. The company products are getting less and less attractive.
Last example was Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 which never went above 4.XX even though it was a high-end (and expensive) device at its time. Fortunately CM allowed me to upgrade (and to get rid of all Samsung junk that came pre-loaded).
This is simple, and happens in almost all organizations. They have a new group manager who has to show some achievement. Oh! Look, I have revolutionized google search!!! Now all links are black." WOW. Talk about innovation.
"starting price of $499,... up to 16GB of RAM, up to a 3200 x 1800 pixel IPS display, and up to an Intel Core M7 Skylake processor."
Meaning, it is NOT GOING TO COST $499 for 16GB ram, 3200x1800 IPS, m7... Also: it is a chromebook, piece of crap.
