I do not smell monopoly, but I do smell fail. A computer that basically won't work if you don't have internet connection? And here people were complaining about needing internet to authenticate their games before playing.
Oh yeah not to mention that nothing will work on Chrome.
nothing is working on chrome though I tested it on an Asus eeepc 1000h and the wifi worked(!). and if you dont have internet, nothing works(well you can play chess)because its just a big google chrome browser, its definitely a fail
