New MS Ad reminded me of this site



  • I saw this MS (featuring Pawn Stars) ad on TV and I immediately thought of the abuse we like to heap on BenL. I don't really care about the arguments they make, but they did a good job recreating the feel of the show. It's also amazing in that it's a Microsoft ad that isn't creepy or bizarre.

    This is a laptop?
     

    That is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. It sounds like a US Senator trying to describe a laptop.

    "It is the web. You can use it on a hill!"



  • Actually, I think for your average user a Chromebook is a pretty good product, same as tablets. Unfortunately there's really only a few things I use computers for, and internet-machines don't work for most of them:

    1. Programming
    2. Video games
    3. Netflix/YouTube/other streaming video
    4. Internetting

    But for your average household these days, 1) is a non-issue, 2) is typically handled by a console, 3) also console/Apple TV/Chromecast, and 4) tablets/Chromebooks work perfectly for.

    I've bolded all the ones I don't use my Chromebook for. There's an SSH client made by Google for Chrome that's better than anything I can get for Windows. I use it on my gaming PC too.

    I neglected to mention that my computer is connected to my flatscreen and surround sound, and that we use it to watch movies/TV together.
