Lenovo is the third OEM to jump into ChromeOS. Chromebooks have been doing well on Amazon, apparently, too. Android tablets, iPads, the Mac, and now Chromebooks - it must be rainy in Redmond.

Why would you buy a computer that has Google spying on you all the time?


Because it almost makes no difference from buying a computer that has Microsoft spying on you all the time? Or Canonical?

* And I'm not sure if Apple computers have anything that is similarly "helpful".

Microsoft doesn't spy on you all the time or I doubt at all.

You can see exactly what information is going out using something like wire-shark.

`sudo aptitude purge unity-shopping-lens && sudo service lightdm restart` takes care of Canonical's spying.
