My family and I really enjoyed ourselves in Orlando, Florida, this past week. So, keep your eyes peeled for a post or posts with relevant photos.
Now, down to business. Here some additional thoughts I've had on my Cr-48, since we last met.
Battery. Yes, I would say it does last about 5-7 hours, depending on the type of use. And even though it died on me absent a clear warning, I believe it "saved" my data and tabs, so they were still there, when I plugged my AC in.
|Using Google Docs on the Cr-48|
I think I'm most disappointed when the letters on the Docs' screen fail to keep up with my fingers. As I write this post in Blogger, I think the drag may be unique to Docs (I'm failing to see the same thing in Blogger).
Underlying Chrome channel unchangeable. In the previous post, I conjectured/hoped I would be able to switch the Chrome channel I run inside of Chrome OS. That's a negatory, good buddy. A Chromium dev informed me that "Chrome and the other parts of Chrome OS are updated in lockstep; there's no way to set different update policies for them. Newer versions of the browser aren't compatible with older versions of the OS, and vice versa." Gasp! Needless to say, as I consider myself a heavy canary/dev build user, I'm uber bummed out about this, cough, development, and hope it changes, fast.

Funked out fonts? At a minimum, I'm really weired out with my Times New Roman fonts on Docs (and I think my normal fonts on Blogger, as well). I hope this is also a beta issue; I imagine fonts are intended to look the same, across OSes.
|Guest Mode. Thanks for the shot, Sebastian of DLSquad.|
Where's my ctrl+end?!!? Call me a keyboard shortcut fanatic, if you want, I'll gladly accept the label. I'm still grumbling about this MIA shortcut.
Guest mode leaves regular mode in the dust? I'll end this post with my puzzled musings. I've been wondering what gives on the Cr-48's speed, so, the other day, I tried out the guest mode and felt like I had my socks blown off, in comparison to regular mode. Has anyone else had a similar experience? More than anything, I simply hope Guest Mode's relative zip is an indicator the Cr-48/Chrome OS's speed will improve substantially, soon.
Please chime in with any questions/observations of your own.
