About 6 Months ago, I picked up an Asus EEEpc 900 off of the internet geek site “Woot!“. For those that are not familiar with the EEEpc, it’s Asus’ bare-bones line. It’s a netbook with a Celeron M (pre Atom) processor and only a 4GB SSD. Now I have upgraded the SSD to 16GB so that I could put Windows 7 on it (which runs very well) and I have also installed a touch screen. The touch screen upgrade has been compared to putting spinners on a Yugo, but it makes it really easy to use while on the couch. Because of the extremely small hard drive and trying to get maximum portability, I decided to only install Google Chrome and a few utilities to keep the machine clean. Any spreadsheets, documents creation, and e-mail would be done in the ‘cloud’ as an experiment. Can I do it? Can I only do work in Google Apps? Is this really possible?
Well woot! successfully ‘fooled’ me before my annual boycott. When I was a child, April Fool’s Day was about putting strings on dollar bills, gluing pennies to the floor and playing time delayed shows on VHS to ‘fool’ people. The internet has just turned it into ‘fake news day’… Stupid… just as stupid as Lost, Heroes and most of the girls on Rock of Love Bus.
In other news… I am ready for the upcoming release of certain Guitar Hero tracks that I am not sure I am supposed to talk about or not… BOOYAH!
