Ars Technica: Some Chromebooks mistakenly declared themselves end-of-life last week

Ars Technica: Some Chromebooks mistakenly declared themselves end-of-life last week. “Google has been working on a way to warn users six months ahead of time that their device’s EOL date is approaching to allow them to plan with a little less time-sensitive desperation. But users running the Canary and Dev early-preview ChromeOS builds discovered a bug in the new code the hard way. After any reboot, brand-new devices started warning ‘this is the last automatic software and security update for this Chromebook. To get future updates, upgrade to a newer model.'” I was happy to see this story because I thought it meant my Chromebox was fine. Spoiler: my Chromebox is not fine. Has anybody used CloudReady?
