    This is really bummer for chromebook and google can not do nothing because their product really sucks.
    On the other side, what is the shittiest than their product - the girl is trying to sell a gift received from her mom and go to Hollywood for some action. IF she is desperate for some food or pay debts maybe would be justified, but selling gift to have fun is ungrateful and low move.

    After all it is chromebook, no wonder she wants to get rid of this. Personally if anyone at my house received it or bought it, I would try to salvage it and sell it asap. Cuz not only in my area we have VERY VERY VERY weak 3G but we can only have 8mb/s (you know, you will never be around 8 meg anyway)

    I actually had a laugh watching it but yea its quite blackish trying to destroy their competition even if they have hardly any chances.

    As if using Windows 8 is any different, unless you go through W8 thoroughly. Even when you deeply clean W8, it still maintains 56 connections when it is on. Ubuntu 13.04 had ad tracking built in. OSX also has ad and mouse tracking.

    (refers to businesses and schools)

    See how Windows notebooks lose ~9% and Chromebooks gain ~9% ? That 's the reason for the hate :)

    I think this is a pretty cool campaign, the chick is hot too. I would have thought that they could get sued for something like this, guess not.
