Standing desks in schools - I think I'd be happy if they introduced this at the school my boys go to.
4th graders and some 1st graders at an elementary school in San Rafael are using standing desks and it seems to be helping the students to maintain focus and dissipate excess energy.

Hi! We are a group of industrial designers who just launched Levit8, a portable standing desk that you can carry around with you, we thought you might be interested!

Do check it out and back it if you like what you see, many thanks!

Another case for standing desks...
Harleena Singh originally shared to Health & Wellness:
 
Warning: Sitting Is The New Smoking!

Do you know that sitting is the new smoking? Sitting is like you’re smoking even if you’re not, because excessive sitting is going to kill you, softly and slowly.

No, please don’t take this lightly, especially if you are blogger or writer. This is no joke but a real warning – sitting is killing!

Though sitting is not literally smoking, but the similarity is in the number of resulting deaths due to excessive use of both.

Smoking is not a disease, but sitting has been termed a disease.

Read more at the blog to know about it :)

I have all my files in Google Drive, but having some clients who share files via Dropbox, this functionality makes it even easier to access those files on my Chromebook. #itjustkeepsgettingbetter  
The latest Chrome OS Dev update makes it even easier to integrate cloud providers like Dropbox and OneDrive with your Chromebook File Manager.

Yep I've started using Dropbox for file sharing. Super handy.

Little things like this keep making the experience on Chromebooks better.
 
We can finally use <Alt>+<Tab> to focus docked windows in the latest Dev Update in Chrome OS.

Whereas it was allowed only for regular windows, we can now simply dock a window by pressing twice <Alt> + [ if we want to dock it to the left for instance and press <Alt>+<Tab> to browse through all windows we have opened (docked included).

Chromebook Pixel Case from Booq FTW

I've seen plenty of posts from people looking for the perfect case/sleeve for the Pixel and I was looking for one until I recently found the Booq Viper Hardcase 13. It's currently on backorder from Booq in the US for $45 plus shipping, but I found one on Amazon UK so I grabbed it and it is absolutely perfect!

The Pixel fits in very snug without being too tight, even with my usb dongle in the side, although it is a small Logitech one - larger ones would be an issue. The outer casing is nice and rigid and is water-resistant so I feel comfortable knowing my Pixel is protected. There is no contact between the zips and the Pixel plus there are pockets to hold extra devices or notepads or whatever you like. I have my Nvidia Shield tablet in 1 and it fits great.

Anyhow, just wanted to share in case anyone is still looking for a case for their Pixel. This is certainly not the cheapest case (especially with the weak Australian dollar) but it was the best I could find and I'm loving it so far!

+M. Lewis For more options, pixels fit into cases made for 11.6 inch chromebooks. So other than those skin-tight neoprene sleeves, that's another possibility.

Interesting wind turbine design. 
At the risk of getting slammed with comments claiming that small wind turbines aren't viable, here's a look at another bladeless wind generator hoping to disrupt the wind energy industry.

Can't wait to get my Pixel and see how useful this is.
 
The new Chromebook Pixel is the first Chrome device that has the ability to perform some limited Wi-Fi functions during sleep, for example connecting to known hotspots for faster connection after wake up. Of course, you can manage whether this feature is turned on or off in chrome://settings.

This new setting is the first feature of an experimental project codenamed Lucid Sleep¹. Its goal is to create a hybrid power state that could wake up a Chromebook from a suspended state to perform some work. Potential tasks include:
- Associating with a known Wi-Fi access point that has just come into range
- Updating user data in response to a received push message²
- Synchronizing with app servers at the request of an app
- Performing system maintenance like trimming SSDs or checking the battery level

Please refer to the Lucid Sleep design document¹ to understand how Linux Kernel, Power Manager, Shill Connection Manager and Chrome browser work together to coordinate Lucid Sleep.

The Chrome OS team is experimenting with Files App search results in the Chrome Launcher in the latest Dev Channel update.

Give it a try! Enable the flag "Launcher Search Provider API" at chrome://flags/#enable-launcher-search-provider-api, restart your session and search for anything you've downloaded or stored in Google Drive.
If the search result is a directory, it will open it in the Files app, otherwise it will try to execute the default task.

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.

Great little playground with slides and swings and BBQ's, but if you have young kids be aware the water is very close by, but there's also a nice little kids beach area which is shallow and pretty well protected.

Not very close to us, but DEFINITELY worth the drive. Big portions, good prices and the quality is consistently high, every single time. Highly recommended!

I drove through and got what I ordered - pretty much just as you'd expect, but I took away 1 star because the foods more pricey than it once was, making it no longer a quick, cheap meal, but that's a story for another day.

Love the breakfast cheese and bacon pie. Cute little spot nice and close to Canggu Club worth dropping in for a quick brekkie. Oh yeah, and the cinnamon rolls are GREAT!

Seems to get better every year and is LOTS better than it was when I was a kid. Lots of kids rides for the young ones plus some more exciting/adventurous ones for the adults. Always love spending a day here, although it's a pretty pricey day out, it's always a good day.
