    This conversation is getting boring. I really don't care about google. If they don't want to give me apps, that's cool, I don't need them.
    I finished my popcorn awhile ago, sadly. :/

    If you want to stay awake for the after-show, you might want to go get an energy drink.

    Yeah the points already been hit, this thread has lost steam. But I am glad we had a back and forth and the conversation managed to reach civility.

    That was I was thinking, I actually use services from both, hell I was just on Xbox Live getting hacked by somebody on Watch Dogs.

    Not anytime soon no. I think it was just a good PR formality "I helped out Google but they won't help me out". I mean Chromebooks can already access Office Online from the website but I guess they were being nice. Even then it's on the Chrome store which means any device with Google Chrome can use it.
    Also, let's be real. They want you to get into their ecosystem, regardless of device.

    It's not easy to completely avoid using Google services. Because of the sheer number of users, they have some stuff nobody else really has, like Google Talk - or whatever they call it these days. I still can't wrap my head around the Chromebook, I find it useless since a good Android tablet can do more and is more portable. I don't care for Google's business practices but it doesn't make me go out spew hateful things about them on an internet board. I use MS services because I prefer how they work, I've been using them for as long as I can remember and they are the industry standard in my profession. At least Apple plays somewhat nice with MS and it's probably why they're the top dogs in sales.

    Does any of this make me a member of Microsoft's PR team?
    All of it. /sarcasm

    True. That's always the end goal. Get people in your ecosystem some how to make them buy hardware that will work the best with it.
