Google Because of Google I/O going full-steam ahead, it's a bit of a Google thing going on here. Google co-founder Sergey Brin had a little chat with the press about the Chromebooks Google announced yesterday, and during that talk, he stated that traditional PC operating systems are "torturing users" with their complexity. While he certainly has a point, I'm not sure I like his solution. Giving Google all my files? Yeah... No.

And who mentioned sales figures and statistics? I certainly didn't. Again I will quote the "YOU" in place of "WE". I for one am quite happy with a mouse and keyboard thank you very much, if you prefer touch-screens and other technologies fair play to you and others who do, but don't impose a "WE" on those of us who don't!


It's called a generalisation. In a generalisation there are exceptions (e.g. you). If there would not be exceptions it would not be a generalisation (it would be a truth). Sales figures support this generalisation.

You are the one using "we" based on your own experiences. I am basing the "we" on a much larger sample size (that of sales statistics).

Honestly, what about this is unclear?
