Test drive a Chrome notebook.

We have a limited number of Chrome notebooks to distribute, and we need to ensure that they find good homes. That’s where you come in. Everything is still very much a work in progress, and it’s users, like you, that often give us our best ideas about what feels clunky or what’s missing. So if you live in the United States, are at least 18 years old, and would like to be considered for our small Pilot program, please fill this out. We’ll review the requests that come in and contact you if you’ve been selected.

How to read blogs in Indonesian and Chinese!

I just discovered the magic of Google Chrome’s Translate tool- it is a one  click operation. So if you want to read blogs in any other language, install Google chrome and tweak the settings accordingly- see below the top of the screenshot ( from the excellent Indonesian R Blog http://enciety.com/community/R/ also available on Twitter at @rcommunity )

Or else if you prefer you old browser you can go to http://translate.google.com/ and copy and paste. Good thing about the Chrome is – even if you dont have admin rights on the machine, it STill installs just fine- and it works faster!
