As Chromebooks (and, by extension Chromebases and Chromeboxes) continue to become more and more capable devices, more users are choosing to make them their only desktop computers. With that change, we are seeing more questions than ever surrounding desktop setups, what we use on the daily, and how we’d set up a desk with a […]
I’ve had the distinct pleasure of traveling to Germany for the past week and a half and while here, I’ve had to firmly rely on my mobile data connection to stay even a tad bit in touch with the tech world. I made a mistake in the early going that I’d never even thought about […]
I’ve spent the past few days reading article after article and watching a handful of YouTube videos of Stadia running Doom Eternal in real time and, as I’ve posited in the past, come away feeling like Google is going to pull this whole game streaming idea off in a big way.
Go with me for a minute. If you haven’t seen the brilliant move by Google’s hardware team, let’s cover that quickly. In the last few days, the leak train began with the Pixel 4. First there were renders, then there were case models (the metal slabs provided to case makers ahead of time for them […]
If you’ve used any number of Chromebooks that convert or detach to acheive tablet mode, you have undoubtedly tried at some point in time to adjust the volume on your device while listening to some sort of media.

Just over a week ago, we reported that Linux apps in the Dev Channel simply stopped working. We’ve never been made aware of what the issue was, but in general in the Dev Channel you could get Linux to install, but then the entire container would simply stop responding at all.
Virtual Desktops on Chromebooks have been a pretty quick feature development, honestly. They only began showing up in February of this year and we’re already awaiting their arrival in the Stable Channel build of Chrome OS 76 later in July.
In this week’s episode, we are mainly dominated by the announcements surrounding Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service. With availability, pricing, and an initial game lineup finally revealed, we take some time to react to all that could be coming in the near future.
The more the Chromebook catalog grows, the more selection users get, the more fierce the competition, the more often we see deals. A few years back when there were only a handful of Chromebooks worth buying, the regularity of deals on Chromebooks was pretty low. At this point in the Chromebook story, however, it seems […]
When it comes to gaming, Chromebooks are simply never in the conversation. Without an OS that is targeted for big title games and hardware that isn’t built for high-end gaming, Chromebooks just aren’t the choice for anyone if gaming is a big part of the reason for purchase. While Android gaming brought about a much […]
As we do around Chrome Unboxed, we have tons of devices hanging out in just about every channel at any given moment. A handful on Stable, a couple in Beta, quite a few in the Dev Channel, and usually Gabriel’s device in Canary help us stay abreast of the new changes and fun surprises coming […]
At Apple’s yearly WWDC event yesterday, a lot of time was spent talking about the new OS that will be on iPads later this year when it officially launches: iPadOS. While some of the new multitasking animations and functions were impressive for a tablet, one of the bigger surprises was the addition of what Apple […]
