Life in the Cloud (If You're a VERY Unlucky Person)

Love this little tutorial about working "in the cloud" with Chromebooks.
"Chrome Book" posted by AppsCare

Don't be sad.  Although there were 25 computers (according to the note at the end of the video) harmed in the making of that video, it appeared to me that they were only CR-48s.  That was the very first generation Chromebook, several generations old at this point, very poor compared to what you can get now.

I'm such a shill ... but I DO love Chromebooks.  I have had, at one point, a CR-48, three Samsung Series 5s (no longer sold, as far as I know), one Samsung (like the $249 version in the link above), and a Chromebook Pixel.  Just like the multiple Android phones you, my seven readers, know that I have.

Song of the Day: Martin Solveig And Dragonette - Hello (Club Edit)

This is a fun song!  I guess I'm still on a bit of a Dragonette kick after seeing them live recently.

Burning Love (and First Dates)

Hilarious parody of all those Bachelor/Bachelorette shows!

Burning Love

By the way, I didn't realize that apparently Yahoo is in the business of making original series.  Who do they think they are?  HBO?  Netflix?  Looks like this is the new world.  Anybody can make great entertainment, you don't have to be a large network anymore.

Okay, so here's another really funny series from Yahoo:
First Dates with Toby Harris

Quotes of the Day - Summing Up Obama

"Joe Biden said that President Obama 'is not bluffing' when he said he was willing to use military force to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. That's true. Technically it's not a 'bluff' if no one believes you."  - Fred Thompson

"President Obama signed the sequestration cuts into law which cut the rate of future spending by two percent but didn't cut any current spending at all. It's an interesting approach to cutting the budget deficit. It's like trying to lose weight by eating slightly more."  - comedian Argus Hamilton
