still wouldn't be able to make calls :(

Dell confirms talks with Google about Chrome OS (Engadget)

Yeah, and the point is that Google provides an easy way for you to do it as a part of their settings.....

What you mention requires add-on's in FF... You just made my point stronger. I don't want to use some "hack" to disable ads when I can go into settings and turn it off regardless of what brower/os/whatever I use.

Settings >> Web Clips >> Uncheck the "show webclips" >> Save... voila, no more webclips up top

If there are any more ads in Gmail, I've never seen 'em

Um, like bing AND yahoo! aren't? They're all into advertising. At least Google allows me to erase the data they have on me, unlike some others. Oh, and should I add how long Hotmail added that sig after you sent out emails? THEY ALL ADVERTISE. However, all Google knows about is some guys who's email address is something and he lives somewhere in the urban areas of Maryland.

P.S.... If you want to compare Google to Yahoo! to Hotmail. I've got one comparison for you:

Google: 1 single line ads in Gmail which you CAN turn off

Hotmail, Yahoo!: Huge, picture ad which you CAN'T turn off

'nuff said.

A lot of it is personal preference, AND IE8 is leaps and bounds ahead of IE6 but...

Security
Layout
Load Time
Crashing

Those are my big 4 against IE8.... However I will say that it's still ages ahead of Safari in my opinion.

yeah, good luck with Safari or IE....

The only other Browser I'd use is Opera. FF is becoming too "bloated" lately.

Oh, and on the OS part, I'd like a WebOS or Windows Embedded 7 device to compare to, but right now I'd take Chrome OS over CE anyday....

Will you take off the tin foil hat already? The aliens aren't coming, and if they do that tin foil is not going to protect you. EVERYONE, again *EVERYONE* "steals" your data. Google just happens to own up to it. You think Microsoft or Yahoo! don't? I don't care what their EULA says, they do it.

Oh, and P.S. at least Google gives you something USEFULL in return for it, unlike Yahoo! I won't say much about MS, because they do have decent free products, but come one MS, is Hotmail (Live Mail) REALLY the best you can do? For crying out loud, even ZOHO is better. Props for Office Live, Sync, and Sky Drive though!

Google: jabs at Apple 'in a spirit of good fun' in fight for developers (video) (Engadget)

May 27th 2010 7:41AM @Ariel Bender Are you serious? You're smoking some good reefer there bud. I'll be the first to admit that parts of Android aren't as aesthetic as Mobile OSX, but mediocre? Google has THE best integration I've seen between mobile and desktop. The only thing I wish is that their product were a little more tightly integrated between themselves. But I'm sorry, Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Android blow Mobile Me out of the water period. Oh, and for 99 bucks, what was the uptime of Mobile Me compared to Gmail last year? riiiight...... I'm sorry, but I'm not a criminal, so I don't care what Google knows about me. When I start getting annoying ads to my house, cell, email, etc.. I'll complain. But for now the "They know everything about me and advertise the crap out of me" just doesn't fly man.

Google 'no longer investigating' fix for Nexus One 3G issues, advises 'changing your location' (Engadget)

WOW.... I don't even have a comeback for that one... just wow.

I would gladly buy a nexus one and give my money to a company that provides many quality FREE services to people, then a corporation that has become a cult that primarily (not all people) services douche bags like you. Go make out with your sister.
