    Google Chrome Cr-48 Notebook Unboxing

    The following are my first impressions and a short gallery showing the Chrome Cr-48 notebook being unboxed after receiving it earlier this year as an early birthday gift from Google.

  • CES 2011: Innovation Power Panel

    Day two started by stumbling into the press line for the Innovation Power Panel when all I was really looking for was the breakfast buffet line (how’s that for luck?).
