After using Chrome OS for four months, I never want to go back

If you still haven’t tried Chrome OS, now’s the time to do so.

Even though I’ve been enthralled by Android since the original Galaxy S Fascinate on Verizon Wireless, it took me until this year to finally give Google’s desktop operating system — Chrome OS — a proper try.

You should never have to reset any software, so why do we need to reset our phones?

A Motorola StarTAC sold new for $ 900 in 1996 and you never had to factory reset its software. One of these things has changed.

There’s a disturbing long-term belief that broken software is somehow our fault for not keeping it clean when it comes to a phone. I’ve seen it rise up again recently now that Oreo has been available for the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 long enough for users to experience problems, but it  [Read More…]
