If you’re like us, you’re just starting to wake up from the dizzying reality of Black Friday. For the past week, deals and markdowns have been all the rage. While it makes sense and it is simply that time of year, all the sales and offers get a little tiring after a while. As much […]
The Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 showed up basically out of nowhere. I still remember getting the press release from Samsung back in June and being a bit taken aback by the abrupt arrival of this new Chromebook. After looking through the changes on offer, I was a little on the fence about the device as […]
Let’s be honest. The introduction and adoption of both Allo and Duo about two and a half years ago didn’t go as Google hoped. Downloads surged shortly after announcement, but the choice to tie both services to a phone number instead of a Google Account derailed the entire effort quite suddenly. Sure WhatsApp and Snapchat […]
There are so many Chromebooks in so many configurations these days, it is tough to nail down which device to buy and which configuration to select once you’ve landed on a model. One of the main contributing factors to this selection for many is internal storage. Sure, we’ve seen more Chromebooks with better baseline storage […]
In the tech world, devices come and go and float into irrelevance far too quickly. Most of this happens due to yearly refreshes to existing lines and slick marketing that makes consumers fear not having the latest, greatest version of their device.

As the landscape of Chrome OS continues to evolve and change, the introduction of higher-end devices with higher-end price tags could make us all forget about the humble beginnings of Chrome OS and the budget Chromebook.
The Google Store is getting in on the early Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, sending out an email announcement that includes dates and deals on tons of stuff in their inventory. As we’re seeing more and more these days, deals aren’t limited to just Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but instead extend out both […]
It’s a quiet thing, the Chrome Developer Summit, but the stuff being announced there could quietly revolutionize apps and app delivery forever. While that may sound like a pretty lofty statement, I don’t think it is that far-fetched at this point. Progressive Web Apps (PWAs from this point forward) have been shaping up over the […]
First off, let’s put this one down as a bit of conjecture and a strong dose of logic. Google hasn’t officially announced a firm release date for GPU Acceleration for Linux apps on Chromebooks just yet, but we know they are already working on it.
While we’re still technically two weeks away from the Black Friday madness, it looks like some stores are getting into the game even earlier this year by offering “Black Friday Deals” before the actual date gets here.
The ever-important purchasing season is rapidly approaching. Black Friday and the crazy shopping season that follows it is nearly upon us, so we’re trying as hard as we can to get impressions and videos posted so you, dear reader, can make a decision on a Chromebook if you are eyeballing one for a gift.
Now that we’re in November and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Google Pixel Slate, we’re beginning to see the emergence of pre-order options at multiple outlets.
