    I've had good results with Chrome. Sometimes I get a warning box that states a page is taking too long to load, then asks me if I want to kill that page or wait. Usually when I click "wait," the page finishes loading. That doesn't happen too often, though. Chrome's service has proven very reliable, IMHO.

    I was wondering... and if any of you were looking at buying a hard drive lately, you've probably noticed to. The prices have almost doubled. Turns out it's due to flooding in thialand. Where alot of hard drives are made it seems. My 2tb western digital drive, and 750gb internal WD drives are thailand made.

    No, I haven't noticed. Of course, I haven't been looking at buying hard drives either for some time.

    Anyone have experience with tablet devices like the Kindle Fire or Google Nexus? We're really interested in getting one.

    Sorry. I'm still too stuck in hard copy mode for that sort of thing. But I probably will think about doing it at some point.
