    This is supposed to be the big threat, guys.

    ABI Research states Chromebook shipments reach 2.1 million for 2013 | ZDNet

    I'm sure this year it might pas two and half million!

    So you think they're amazing, but completely underrated? Because if so, I have to ask why.

    We might bash them, I bash them, and Microsoft might bash them, but they are a threat.

    And how we make fun of Chromebooks, people make fun of WP.

    They're the BB10 as in I don't like the software (yes, I have a Z10, so I've used it), there aren't many apps from the store, they have a market share less than 1%, and frankly, when I see person with one, they're like a unicorn, they're so rare.

    They're potentially a threat in the same way that WP is potentially a threat to Android. I doubt either of them is going to topple their competition, though. Sorry, guys, I use what I use because it works for me and not because I assume it's going to win some war.

    Not to derail the conversation for too long, but what specifically didn't you like about your BB?

    You are correct; there are a lot of similarities. WP was the fastest growing smartphone from 2012 to 2013, at 158%, but yet the actual numbers were small. Chromebooks had the same type of deal. However, the growth was over 1,000,000%! The staggering number is because Chromebooks were almost nonexistent in 2012.

    I'm enjoying watching the whole thing on both sides!
