    The wily geniuses over at Google have been having fun with their cool new toy, the Cr-48 Google Chrome Laptop. With a Disney-esque jingle strumming in the background, you can see one destroyed in some very creative ways. Check out the video below.


    The sly folks at Google also stuck a secret puzzle within the video. It's already been cracked, but is interesting nonetheless. If you watch the video to about the 2:23 mark, you will see an equation on the chalk-board in the background. The folks over at engadget report here that a man named Sylvain Zimmer got curious about it and cracked the code. Apparently, it converts into a phrase that I won't spoil for you uber-nerds that want to solve it yourselves, (be forewarned that the previous link does spoil the answer.) He figured out how to send it to google through a clandestine email address and won himself a free Cr-48 Google Chrome Laptop.
