I came home Tuesday to find a surprise waiting next to my door. There was a generic UPS package delivered and I could not figure out what I had ordered. I certainly wasn’t waiting or expecting a package. I opened up the box to find another generic box inside, still wondering, “What is this?” in my mind. I turned over the interior box to find purple grafitti on the package and then I realized that I’d just received a CR-48 Chrome notebook from Google as part of Chrome OS pilot program.
I have since read that others have had this same surprise as their notebooks have arrived. There was no advanced notification to expect the notebook and no emails with tracking information, etc. So, the surprise factor just makes the entire experience all the more exciting.
