It’s no secret that Bluetooth on Chromebooks has been a pretty dodgy affair for quite some time. The issue has been getting more and more attention as detachables and tablets have started to enter the market, but a full-on, proper fix for connectivity issues with Bluetooth peripherals has still not been released by Google yet.

Just a couple months ago, every other day seemed to bring a new deal on a new Chromebook. When you get within a month’s proximity of Christmas, deals and sales are just part of the daily conversation. On the other side of the holidays, however, those great deals tend to slow down and become a […]
I’m going to describe an event that happens hundreds of times a day on every internet user’s screen and, chances are, this event is so normal and hum-drum that you haven’t even considered it until now. Every single time you click a link in Chrome – every time – your browser navigates to your chosen […]
Wow! Just yesterday we reported Acer dropping a couple new education devices at the annual BETT show in London. Those devices, powered by the latest Intel Celeron chips (Gemini Lake), bring 3:2 screens, speedy performance, better screens, and military-spec ruggedness for the classroom.
While HP and ASUS have already debuted their newest EDU Chromebooks ahead of the annual BETT show in London, we knew Acer would have a new line of Chromebooks to bring along to the the yearly education-focused tech expo, too. You can watch our hands-on video from CES below and see how impressive the newest […]
According to a recent report over at About Chromebooks, Google’s Pixelbook and devices based on the ‘Nami’ baseboard are getting a very early taste of GPU acceleration for Linux Apps. We’ve talked about all this a bit more in-depth in the past, but here’s the reason this is important: GPU acceleration allows applications to fully […]
One of the devices we haven’t yet done a full review on is the ASUS C423. There are a few reasons for that, but the biggest one is the availability of a better model in the wild with a better display that we’d rather give a test drive over the one we currently have in […]
Probably our favorite thing at CES 2019 was the time we got to spend with the fine folks from Brydge. In our time together, we got to really delve deep into what it took for them to bring the G-Type to life, the hurdles that had to be overcome to see the project through, and […]
The entire Crostini (Linux apps on Chromebooks) effort has moved along quite quickly when you think about it. In just 6 short months, we’ve gone from not having an official option for Linux apps (though Crouton is and was an amazing effort) to seeing a majority of Chromebooks gain baked-in access to Linux on Chrome […]
If you are a user who’s made the transition to Chromebooks from a more standard OS like Mac OS or Windows, file management could be a little different for you. For me, the transition to Chrome OS and the way it handles files took me a bit of time. As I transitioned over, I tended […]
Ah, Chromecast Audio: the peculiar cousin to the vastly-popular Google Chromecast that never really managed to find a solid footing in the market. While being a fantastic add-on to traditionally “dumb” speakers, the Chromecast Audio never really caught on for the general public.
It’s been nearly a week since Acer dropped the news that they, along with HP, would be debuting one of the industry’s first AMD-powered Chromebooks.
