You can probably do everything online nowadays but there is an argument there are some things that you should not, probably because of how important they are.

Looking at it from the point of view that a few years back very little could be done online, are you imagining a scenario where all those things you do not or probably think can't do online are the same things you will have to do?

I know that I, for one, and going to try to do everything possible in "the cloud". It just makes so much more sense. I only just recently had a computer crash because of a virus.

Bling-Bling, thanks for sharing that out. I have had a crash twice in a row and eventually had to forget about that machine. The whole 'cloud' concept is a superb one and it is time people embraced it for their own good.

I hope it does cause a culture shift. I have been waiting for something to happen. Human kind has been stagnating and technology, like that in Google Chromebooks move us along.

First we got typewriters and we thought it was far out. Then we got computers and it was so cool. Next came the internet and we were wowed. Now we have the Google Chromebook, who could ask for more. It's human evolution man.

Nice point we have there, but I am just wondering how people for example looked forward to the computers, given the typewriters were the 'in thing' then.

Or times have changed such that if anything is to come, we have to weigh its pros and cons?

I think it is a tool to help make the next shift in the way we use information. This and the iPad will make a big dent in the MS kingdom. They have to much invested in their software to quickly move to a more mobile environment.

I don't think that the Chromebook alone is responsible for a culture shift, but I think it is part of a much larger shift in our culture. I think that every piece of technology we use is important in creating this shift.

I completely agree with you Lindsey but what we can say is that it is the Chromebook's moment as we speak but as you say it is not responsibke per se.

this isn't a huge evolution about much didn't evolve it more of a new OS stepping out and an idea of having data stored online by a trusted resource.

Omosh, are you saying that in the near future we won't have any choice but to use computers for things which are currently optional? So say banking will have to be done online? I can see that happening but probably not completely until the older generations are gone. Young people know nothing else so are adaptable.

Well, perhaps that will be the case soon but either way, technological advancements are soon going to better things and even though there will be options, there would be better ways if doing things.
