Are you spending every visit home showing your dad how to turn the computer on… again? Fielding frantic phone calls from your mother about how her monitor is “broken,” when it turns out it’s just sleeping? Then you’re going to love Google’s latest brainchild.

It probably won’t stop them from insisting you spend half of Thanksgiving “making the wireless go,” but it’s a start. -Mir
