Chromebook Scavenger Hunt
The Chromebook scavenger hunt is on.... Google is hosting a scavenger hunt to win the right to an early-release pre-order on the Google Chromebook. A great way to build hype, and obviously the forum members here can work together to answer the puzzles, and get early-release Chromebooks. Even if you don't want one, you can make a nice profit selling these on eBay

9:26am PT - The first Chromebook preview location of the day is at Wantist, a fun place to shop for gifts designed with a clever "one-sentence interface": I'm looking for [something] for [someone] -- all built in HTML5, of course.
