Why I love my CR-48 (Reason #2)

The Cloud!

Google's CR-48 is all about cloud computing.  What is cloud computing?  Here is a video that will help:

Using the CR-48 has forced me to become more acquainted with the cloud. There are several useful sites out there, and you can do almost anything right in the browser. I use Google Docs more and more. I even added the extra storage (20 gig) for only $5/year. That 20 gig spans across all of my Google products, including Google Docs, Gmail, and Picasa(for my pictures).

Here is another little video I think you might enjoy.


  1. I've got one, too - quickly growing on me. I had already moved much of my online browsing to Chrome, so this was a natural fit. There's a few nits I would like adjusted - file access, more apps available, etc - but otherwise anytime I want to complain about something I just remember, oh yeah, I didn't pay for it. :)

  2. I didn't realize that you had one as well!

    I'm like you. There are a few things that can be problematic, but with a free laptop... I can deal with it!

  3. Oh cool. . .another Cr048 user who loves Jesus! yay!

  4. That's right. We're redeeming technology one computer at a time.


Leave a thought of your own.
