We’re here at the Next@Acer global press event and we’re taking a quick peak at the two new Chromebooks on offer from Acer. We’ll spend some more time with them soon and get more in-depth hands-on videos at that point, but we wanted to share our initial thoughts from the keynote with you now. Enjoy!
I will admit, using the Google Assistant on my Chromebook was an intriguing idea when the work was first discovered more than a year and a half ago. I will also concede that I now use the Assistant on my Chromebook exactly zero percent of the time. For me, the thought of my Chromebook being […]
As much as we love Chrome OS, there’s always room for improvement, Like any other operating system, it has its shortcomings, quirks and sometimes just flat out issues that need to be addressed. One particular area that is in desperate need of some polishing is the Chrome Web Store. With Android and Linux apps now […]
Anchor tags are awesome little HTML tricks and when implemented properly, they can add a lot to a websites aesthetics. Not only that, they are very useful in assisting users in navigating quickly to specific areas of a webpage with ease. With some simple styling, I can lead you to a specific paragraph, image, video […]
We just published the initial details on both the first AMD offering from HP and the new, somewhat-unexpected x360 14 G1 just yesterday, but last night we were able to swing by HP’s booth and give both of these new Chromebooks a test drive.
For some time, Chrome developers have been working on the “Chrome Home” UI which brings the browser’s controls to the bottom of your phone’s display. While definitely still a work in progress, new features are being tested and tweaked for the Chrome Home UI and this week, Chrome Story’s Dinsan Francis discovered a “Close All […]
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 […]
Integration for Android Messages on Chrome OS has been in the works for well over a year. What started as “SMS Connect” then evolved to “Better Together” in the Chrome OS settings menu. Alas, the deeper integration of Android Messages has eluded us until we got a little sneak-peek at the Google event earlier this […]
Just about two weeks ago, out of seemingly nowhere, ASUS dropped a new Chromebook on us in the form of the ASUS C423. You can go and read about that device if you’d like, but what we’re talking about today is the bigger brother to that device, the ASUS C523 that looks to be launching […]
Rounding out our time with Google on Tuesday was a bit of hands-on time with the new Google Home Hub. Like everything else on offer by Google lately, this piece of hardware is different not only because of how it is built, but also because of the software experience within.
During our time with the Pixel Slate at Google’s hardware event, one particular accessory truly grabbed our attention: The Brydge G-Type Wireless Keyboard. I have little doubt that we’ll see plenty keyboard/trackpad accessories for the Pixel Slate over the course of the next few months, but this particular device is truly designed from the ground […]
Google had a lot to show us all on Tuesday, but nothing was more interesting to us than the Pixel Slate. Sure, we’ve known quite a bit about it, but there were some surprises in there that even we didn’t know about. Getting our hands on this device took me from excited to outright fanboy […]
