What really gets my knickers in a twist is that the local high school was forced to dispose of these nifty little machines for $25 a pop only because #Google ended #ChromeOS support for this #Chromebook model. It posed a security risk and they were forced to purchase new Chromebooks. This planned obsolescence diverts money from already strained schools into Google's pockets and likely generates an obscene amount of e-waste. Not cool.
