Be the first to get a Chromebook.

I’m sending this to the Chromebook Team as well as Larry and Sergey at Google.  I’m guessing no human there will see it, so I”m posting it on many of my blogs for good measure.I really wanted a Chromebook.  I volunteered to beta test one.  I think it could be a great tool.  But now that I see that Samsung is making the device, I’d rather have hot steel pokers inserted into every orifice on my body than buy this item.

Samsung has completely made my, and thousands of other Google Android OS phone users, miserable over the last few weeks with the inferior quality of the Samsung Google Sprint Nexus S 4G phone.  I won’t waste time going into all the details, but I invite you to check the reviews of the phone from actual users on the Google and Sprint user forums.  You’ll enjoy the 523 (and counting) complaints about this device on the Sprint forum alone.

For Google to team up with Samsung, a company that has shown a total disregard for its customers in the Nexus S 4G debacle, is inexcusable.  To let them come to market with this long awaited computer while thousands of frustrated people deal with a clearly flawed piece of hardware with the Google and Samsung (not to mention Sprint) names on it is an insult to Google’s customer base.

Will someone please let Larry and Sergey know they should be ashamed of themselves?
