I saw a guy giving a lecture on technology use a laser keyboard for his PDA, but I've never used one myself. They seem like a good idea for phones and whatnot.

DIY Kindle skin?

I want to put a skin on my Kindle so it doesn't get scratched, but the ones for sale are kind of expensive. Is there a way I could DIY a skin for cheap?

Congrats to the Chromebook! It's been a while since it came out (well, relatively, in the scale of Internet Time), so it's nice that it's still doing so well.

I know there's a few wireless mouses out there that only require you plug in a USB thumbdrive thing to connect it to your computer. You don't need to install anything!

Haha, same here! I'm kind of hoping that in a few months there'll be some price drops, or at least some good used Chromebooks on sale for cheap. But as long as a Chromebook costs more than a netbook,...

Too bad about there being no dual boot option, as the idea of Chrome OS on a Macbook is pretty neat. No way would I risk getting rid of Mac OS X, though, especially if there's still issues with...

I went to the local aquarium earlier this week and they had a kind of petting zoo thing going on with some of the sea creatures, including some small sharks! I pet one of the sharks, and I also...

I don't work in IT, or even in anything remotely computer/internet related, so I don't think my job will be affected by the cloud. But who knows-- it could spread to other, non-directly internet...

Has the battery life been tested by people? Does it actually last 8 whole hours with the wifi on/screen a decent brightness/etc? What about if you watch videos? Because that's kind of amazing.

Sheesh, that's pretty expensive! I don't have a smartphone, but the costs of a data plan are making me not want one even more. Is Verizon's new plan competitive to other plans out there?

Uh, no, I don't. My "clubs" are online forums, basically! But a couple of my friends are in RPG clubs and whatnot, and they have fun.

Space?

Would you ever want to visit outer space? I mean proper outer space, as in Mars or something.

I don't think I would, as I'm a bit claustrophobic and modern space ships are kinda small. Maybe if...

Skins

Have you gotten a skin for your Chromebook? What does it look like? Do you like it? (And where did you get it? I've only found one dedicated Chromebook skin store so far, but there must be more.)

It's always a good idea to have copies of everything off the cloud as well, just in case something happens. Like how you'd back up your computer in case it crashed.

I'm afraid of heights, like, a lot. I also don't like standing to near too cliffs, or lizards, or spiders. I guess I'm also afraid of alligators?

I've been online for only about 10 years or so. It took a while for my parents to get any sort of internet connection set up, but we've had computers around since the late 1980s.

I'd recommend just giving Google Docs a shot right now and seeing if it does what you need/want it to do, Sarah. Like bloggie said, it's free!

I was wondering about this as well. The promos looked really cool, but it also kind of looks like another Cloverfield and that movie reeked.

ebooks vs pbooks

Since this is a tech-y kind of forum I'm wondering: do you prefer to read ebooks or paper books (pbooks)? Or do you not care either way?

Personally I don't care what I read as long as it's a good...

My favorite TV show is Doctor Who. This season has been really weird, but it's generally enjoyable and I like the sci-fi/action/adventure/drama-ness of it. (Sometimes it's even got horror!)

Benefit of a Chromebox?

I guess I just don't really get the whole "Chromebox" thing. First of all, what is it? A really small version of a desktop tower? Secondly, why would you buy one, besides to save space on your desk?...
