We covered the slew of updated features that were introduced in Chrome OS 70 first in the Dev Channel. The majority of these updates affect tablet mode in general, which isn’t a big surprise given what we are expecting to see at Google’s hardware event just a couple weeks from now.
For the past year, a few Chromebooks have utilized the same high-resolution screen and we’ve been completely fine with that. The Pixelbook, HP Chromebook x2, Samsung Chromebook Pro and Samsung Chromebook Plus all utilize a 2400×1600 resolution screen with good color and brightness and we’ve yet to see anything in the high-res category apart from […]
We’re getting close to the end of the line, folks, and the leaks are coming from every side. We had eyes on some sort of Chrome OS tablet not long ago along with a smattering of updated Pixelbook leaks, so the hype machine is kicking in full-force. Today’s leaks come courtesy of About Chromebooks where […]
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 Blame it on an outdated Bluetooth stack, cheap hardware, or whatever you want: using Bluetooth devices with Chromebooks has been […]
We only have about 3 weeks left before the big Google hardware event on October 9th. While the jury is out on whether or not Google has anything surprising in store for the Pixel 3 line of phones, there’s no doubt that there’s much to look forward to when we start talking Chromebooks. It’s a […]
You’ve probably read a similar story to this somewhere on the internet by now, but if you haven’t, the quick and easy version is this: Google’s shutting down Inbox in March now that Gmail finally got an update, visual overhaul, and many of Inbox’s previously-unique features.
Chrome OS has been a desktop-focused OS since the beginning. That comes as no surprise to anyone, right? Well, with all the most recent changes to Chrome OS both on the software and hardware front, there is more movement than ever getting Chrome OS ready for tablet use cases. With the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 […]
If you need any proof that Google does, in fact, listen to customers, this particular reversal shows that is at least the case when it comes to Chrome OS software decisions. This seems like a small change and it is. To be honest, it is an issue that simply never should have been an issue […]
UPDATE: The link to the bug report has been blocked after this article was published. Looks like we probably hit a bit to close to home! We’re only 31 days out from Google’s upcoming #madebyGoogle hardware event, and though the leaks of the Pixel phones have been rampant to the point of absurdity, we’ve seen […]
Back when Google began spinning down support for Chrome Apps across most platforms, many thought the Chrome Web Store was about to begin the slow wind-down to obsolescence. I was in that company. I won’t lie. I simply thought Google was doing what Google so often does and were walking away from yet another marginally […]
We’re currently working on gathering all the new goodies currently available in Chrome OS 70 in the Developer Channel. Since our last video on the subject, the developers have been VERY busy fixing issues and adding more features by the boatload. One feature in particular that we’ve talked about already – fingerprint scanner integration – […]
Ever since Samsung surprised us with an update to the original Samsung Chromebook Plus, we’ve been speculating that we’ll also see a refresh of the original Pro before the end of the year. With the way new boards are leveraged for multiple OEM devices these days, pinpointing new devices from the Chromium Repositories isn’t quite […]
