Google’s lineup of Home products are awesome and continues to expand with more devices like the Home Hub that debuted in New York last month. We have Google Home devices everywhere around the home and the office and we love them. While the core functions are all similar, our favorite Home speaker is hands-down the […]
Trackpads are a quintessential part of the laptop experience these days. Sure, over the years we’ve tried all sorts of mobile pointing devices, but the standard pointer input has clearly become the trackpad. This is especially true of Chromebooks where, all the way back to the beginning, every Chromebook has been equipped with a trackpad […]
During our time with the Pixel Slate at Google’s hardware event, one particular accessory truly grabbed our attention: The Brydge G-Type Wireless Keyboard. I have little doubt that we’ll see plenty keyboard/trackpad accessories for the Pixel Slate over the course of the next few months, but this particular device is truly designed from the ground […]
If I were to list the top five requests for articles I get, this one would be in the top 5 for sure. Bluetooth has been a struggle that has plagued Chrome OS for years. Blame it on an outdated Bluetooth stack, cheap hardware, or whatever you want: using Bluetooth devices with Chromebooks has been […]
Last week, 9to5Google’s Kyle Bradshaw (fellow code diver) uncovered evidence of a third-party keyboard in the works for Chrome OS. While this, in and of itself, is hardly newsworthy. The name attached to the new peripheral device is more than noteworthy. Add mappings for “Hamburger” and “Assistant” keys on Hammer/Wand/Whiskers and BRYDGE keyboards.

The next round of Chromebook accessories has been unveiled at ISTE 2018 as educators and administrators gather to see the latest and greatest in the world of educational technology. Belkin Education, a division of Belkin International, has released their first Chromebook-specific keyboard designed specifically for the Acer Chromebook Tab 10. The accessory connects via USB-C […]
Back in January, premium pencil-maker Staedtler teamed up with Google at the annual BETT show in London to show off their first stylus designed with Chromebooks in mind. The Noris Digital stylus sports the look and feel of a real No. 2 pencil and uses EMR technology to create a cost-effective stylus that’s a perfect […]
One of the larger nagging issues with the Google Home mini and the standard Google Home has always been the lack of auxiliary output. This small omission causes some major headaches for users with large, existing speaker setups that they would like to leverage for music and media playback.
In the past few months, the name of the game in the Chrome OS universe is new features. In the absence of new flagship hardware for the Chrome OS ecosystem (we’ve seen quite a few new education-focused Chromebooks, but no real flagship devices announced since the Pixelbook back in early October. We’re seeing new software […]
A few months back, we asked if you, our readers would be interested in purchasing Chrome Unboxed t-shirts. The response and was overwhelming and after getting through the holidays and CES, we’re finally ready to offer our first run of official Chrome Unboxed shirts. Initially, we set the pricing at $24 plus approximately $6 for […]
Let’s start this off by saying I think Google fumbled just a bit when they didn’t include the Pixelbook Pen in the box with the Pixelbook. They fumbled again when they failed to give us a decent place to store it. The pen itself has been great to use and I reach for it more […]
