Tomorrow night, Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez will step into the ring and pair off against current WBA super-middleweight regular title-holder Rocky Fielding. It will be a big day not only for Canelo who is stepping up into a new weight class but also for the entire genre of televised fights. For Canelo, it means the shot […]
We talk about a ton of stuff here at Chrome Unboxed. From Chromebooks to Chromecast to Google Assistant, the world of Chrome OS is pretty far-reaching. We save our News section for the things that are breaking news to our readers.
PDFs have become quite the standard over the years. Of all of Adobe’s contributions to the software world, the PDF will likely stand the test of time as the de facto sharable public document. Though originally created by Adobe, they handed control of the PDF file over to the international community back in 2007 and […]
Nearly a year ago to the day, news spread that Google and Amazon have buried the hatchet on their long-running feuds that have, for years, prevented Chromecast devices from being sold on Amazon’s site.
Acer recently made their much-anticipated 14″ Chromebook refresh official and even though it’s still not available for purchase, two new variations have popped up on their website. We haven’t had a chance to get hands-on time with the Acer Chromebook 514, yet. However, based on the specs (that are everything we’ve longed for) this could […]
Last month, we reported that Google’s Family Link for Chromebooks had finally arrived in the Beta Channel. Looking at forum posts, the reception has been a bit of a mix for the Supervised Users replacement but regardless, Google is trying to make it an all-in-one management console for parents who want to manage screen time […]
The Chromecast experience on Chrome has been largely the same for quite some time. They’ve slowly changed small features and layouts along the way, but it seems a pretty significant overhaul is happening with the Casting interface. We’re oddly only seeing this change occurring on the HP Chromebook x360 at the moment and that device […]
This one hurts quite a bit. Back in August, we reported that the Pixel Slate (then known as ‘Nocturne’) was being tested with the ultra-fast NVMe storage available in the Pixelbook’s top-level configuration. The commit was pretty straightforward and everything was pointing clearly towards the Pixel Slate equipping this much-improved storage at least on the […]
In the past couple months, we’ve been a bit overwhelmed with new Chromebook models left and right. From HP, Dell, Google, Lenovo, and Acer, the new mid-to-high-end Chromebooks have been great and we’ve really enjoyed working through reviews for each. As excited as we’ve been by all these devices, there is a new frontier we’ve […]
Well, the time has come to address the elephant in the room. October has long passed and with it Google’s annual hardware event. As expected, the Pixel Slate, a.k.a. ‘Nocturne’ made its debut. Love it or hate it, the “tablet first” Chromebook #MadeByGoogle is the belle of the ball at the moment and clearly the […]
Since we began here at Chrome Unboxed, the landscape of Chromebooks has changed mightily. From an ecosystem dominated by clamshells we transitioned to an ecosystem dominated by convertibles. In 2018, we are set for yet another transition: the transition to tablets.
For more than a year, I have longed for a suitable successor to my beloved Acer Chromebook 14. It’s one of those unique devices that may not lead the way as a premier Chrome device but the overall package is compelling and its design is timeless. The all-aluminum FHD Chromebook 14 was so popular that […]
The Chromecast Audio is an underrated and awesome little streaming device. The promise of this dongle is simple: turn any set of speakers you own into sweet, high-fidelity, Cast-enabled playback machines. Many of us already own good speakers in one form or another, but those devices tend to be wired or Bluetooth. If you’ve ever […]
