    I wonder if Google will donate a few quid towards me if I say enough nice things about them? ;)

    Aaaaaaah! We're getting to the nub of the sustained rants ;) They'll first do a bit of data-mining to see if your rants have had any effect. BTW, are you CMonkeyBloke elsewhere?

    I'm sure the slaves will refuse the help once they realize it's a PR play.

    Does that include all the underpaid 3rd world workers making Chromebooks?

    That's like blaming Microsoft for Dell using underpaid workings. Google provides the OS, they don't handle the hardware at all.

    EDIT: Incidentally I'd love a source on that though. Not that I doubt it, I'm just curious.

    Not really, I thought that MS & Dell were separate companies.

    I'm curious too.
