What's the best monitor to use with Chromeboxes?
I've got an Acer Chromebox (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NCSPEBM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) on the way and rather than hook it up to my current 2 x 23" Samsung monitors, I'm considering getting a nice big, maybe 4k, widescreen monitor and wondered if anyone has had any experience using Chromeboxes with these kinds of monitors. Can they handle pushing that many pixels?

I also plan on using it as an external monitor with my Toshiba Chromebook 2 until the Chromebox arrives.

All feedback & recommendations welcome. Thanks.

Anyone got any recommendations for best value Chromeboxes on sale at the moment? Looking for a desktop option to handle multiple monitors (and preferably with easily upgradable RAM) for when I want to give my Toshiba Chromebook 2 a break.

+Brent Sullivan? Any recommendations for bargains worth picking up?

If you want the RAM to be easy to upgrade, I assume that you intend to upgrade it, and so you'd do best to buy with the least amount of RAM - that way, you are throwing less away when you upgrade!
I agree that Asus seem to be the pick of the Chromeboxes.
If you are happy with a Celeron (and I certainly am) your best bargain seems to be £149, (2GB), from Amazon.com, and get your own K/B and mouse.

I just made a loan to a borrower in Gujranwala, Pakistan. Join me on Kiva today, and you can make a difference in this borrower’s life, too!
A portion of the loan helped a member to buy stitching material such as spools of thread, packs of zippers, buttons, etc. to sew more dresses

Has anyone else encountered this issue? Any idea what's causing it and how to resolve it? Love this device but this is a little frustrating...

+David Stallard In general, what you may want to do before a casual powerwash is clicking the "Reset all to default" button in about:flags.

Can't get my Android app to work on my Chromebook - Help please

I've used ARChon on my phone to convert the app and then I install it on my Toshiba Chromebook 2 and the audio is playing all ok but the screen is just black. Any suggestions of things I could try to get it working?

Note: The APK doesn't have any licensing/encryption or special permission requirements.

Nexus 6 pricing announced in Australia,

$869 for 32GB or $929 for 64GB. Based on the current exchange rate, it works out to $758AUD for the 32GB version, so there's another $111 added for good measure, or "Aussie tax". If that's including GST, I'd be ok with it, but I'd assume they ship from Singapore (as per the N9) and therefore have no GST.

What do you think +James Bryant​​ +Ausdroid​​

Seems a bit rich to me, especially when you consider the other options like the 2014 Moto X and the OnePlus One. Think I'll grab one, but it still feels a bit much. Let's hope the phone blows me away.

Introduction
After graduating from All Saints' College I went to Curtin University and completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing and Advertising) before undertaking a few different marketing roles and ending up with Coca-Cola Amatil. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there (especially the training and development) before moving back into a marketing role at brainCELLS and then with Knee Deep Wines. Somewhere in there is also managed to complete a Masters in Strategic Marketing (Curtin University).

I then felt confident enough in my skills and abilities to start my own company and so, with my wife, Platinum Healthcare was created to provide community-based healthcare services for elderly and disabled clients in the comfort of their own homes. The business grew rapidly and saw the team expand to 35+ before I decided a change was necessary to get a better work-life balance (as I had 2 small children) and so I sold the business.

During the last 2 years of Platinum Healthcare I was working with a team of developers to create an Android app for the business to interface with our existing rostering systems to give office-based and field-based staff remote access to rosters. The end result was amazing and when I sold Platinum Healthcare I went on to start Platinum Apps, working with talented designers and developers to create apps for Android and iOS. I love the change of scene and seeing what is possible with the ever-advancing world of technology, so if you're wanting an app made or to bounce your idea around, get in touch.

I was wanting to turn my house into a smart home by having a whole pile of wi-fi compatible light switches and sensors installed and Brett did an amazing job. He took the time to ensure everything was not only installed but also setup and working properly so I could control everything via my phone/computer. He was also cheaper than the other companies I spoke with and I'd definitely recommend him (and already have to some friends) for any electrical work.

I've been working with Jesse for many years and during this time he has designed everything from apps to websites to business card for a variety of my businesses and one thing remains the same: his commitment to creative, high-quality design. He consistently delivers great work and I've recommended him to plenty of others who have been equally as pleased.
