    I miss the iopener days where I could hack it for $99. at $499, it is just simply too cost-prohibitive to hack.

    Never gonna buy such device as it lacks tonnes of features compared to my current HP PC :p, plus, after reading <a href="http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zdnet.com%2Fblog%2Fbott%2Fgoogles-blogger-outage-makes-the-case-against-a-cloud-only-strategy%2F3300&h=15457&site=zdnet.com&type=R&plugin=A&social=false&pos=4%2F4&signature=7759037202e4c901&referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zdnet.com%2Fvideos%2Fevents%2Fgoogle-reveals-first-chromebooks%2F6232306&cb=2">this</a> clearly detailed article, I don't see this Strategy being successful atall, especially with a spy in the past ;)

    I like it - The Smart Mouth Mobile application will be available on the Chromebook in a few days and it will allow you to use the ChromeBook to make and receive unlimited phone calls internationally for under $20 a year!
