If you’ve been in the Chrome ecosystem long enough, you probably remember the Chrome to Phone app initiative. It was one of the first attempts at unifying the phone and desktop browsing experience by allowing users to ‘push’ an open Chrome tab from your desktop to your phone. The idea was simple: when at your […]
The Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 with LTE is by no means the first cellular-enabled Chrome device to come to market. There was Google’s Chromebook Pixel (2013), the HP Chromebook 14 (w/4G, not LTE. Also, my first Chromebook. Loved it.) and an obscure ASUS 300 model that I’ve never actually seen in the flesh. Out of […]
CTL is at it again. The Oregon-based computer company dropped their Kaby Lake-powered Chromebox back in March with an industry low price of $199. The Intel Celeron Chromebox has since been bumped to $229 but it’s still the best deal going for the current generation of Chromeboxes. When announced, CEO Erik Stromquist told me that […]

While we are replete with leaks ahead of Google’s hardware event in a couple days, there’s a certain comfort in seeing software-based features that are coming for Chrome OS.

For many months, rumors have been swirling around Google creating a gaming platform. Most agreed that this would come in the form of some sort of Android-powered gaming box or via online game streaming. It seems the latter is the answer.
If you haven’t heard of Samsung’s DeX UI, you’d be forgiven for not exactly being in the know. The whole concept is a little radical and very much on the fringe, but the essentials go something like this: on your Samsung phone or tablet there is an additional UI that can be triggered to give […]
The advent of Linux apps on Chromebooks is a relatively new phenomenon that feels like its been around for a long time. If you remember, the feature has only been around for the last few versions of Chrome and only began garnering attention in May of 2018 around Google’s yearly developer event: I/O. With that […]
We’re getting a little antsy around the office waiting for the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 to make its arrival to market. We have it on good authority that it will be happening very soon and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Acer will make good on their September launch target. In the meantime, let’s talk […]
Oregon-based tech manufacturer CTL has been knocking it out of the park for the past year and they aren’t stopping any time soon. From a fleet of new Chromebooks to the most budget-friendly Kaby Lake Chromebox on the market, CTL is making waves in the Chrome OS market and now they’ve teamed up with Steadfast […]
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.
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.
