    Looks like many – most? – Chromebooks veered offline yesterday, after an update broke existing WiFi connections. You could still log on to a network manually, but if your setup (or company or school) relies on an existing internet connection, your machine turned belly-up.

    Microsoft-itis. It hit Apple last week. Now ChromeOS.

      Hah! If they had, then this issue would never have been fixed this quickly. Or perhaps they have, yet others who actually know what they are doing fixed this issue very quickly.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
