re: Google, Intel Bring Haswell To Chromebooks
"We regularly see cases where people have bought [a Chromebook] as an additional machine and end up spending almost all their time with us" ... Interesting quote, since that's sort of how tablet usage evolved-- i.e. started as a secondary devices but unexpectedly supplanted primary devices.

I think it's smart to market these as lifestyle devices, as their cloud-centricism lends itself to niches. But with more and more offline functionality, low prices, and killer battery life, Chromebooks are looking better and better as mass market devices.

Interestingly, there was no mention of Samsung, which makes the most popular Chromebook at the moment.

If the battery life is anywhere near 50% better, that is a big deal.
