"If even an organization like SwiftKey couldn't swing it, how can those smaller operations possibly support themselves and keep improving their products when they depend on a measly $2.99 per user for a lifetime of work?

The answer is simple: They can't."

Spread the word.
There's a troubling message lurking within SwiftKey's sale to Microsoft, and it's one we all need to take some time to consider.

*My thoughts after using the ASUS Chromebit*

First off, I got it pretty much for one reason & one reason alone - to get Chrome on a TV I'm currently using with an Apple TV.
For that purpose, it does exactly what I wanted it to do.
Can it do more? Sure.
Will I personally use it to do more? Nope.

To me, the Chromebit seems like a relatively inexpensive way to add a bit of "Smart" into non-Smart TV's & TV's that don't already have alternatives.
I however, already have a Remix Mini & an Apple TV, so I really have no need for it other than its Chrome OS/broswer.

That said, I think it'd be a great way for someone to dip their toes into "Smart" features without spending ~150$ on an Apple TV or ~200$ on an nVidia Shield.
Can it do everything those can do? Nope.
However, since it's essential Chrome, it can do things they can't - like surf the web.

Other devices, like the Remix Mini can also surf the web & is even ~10$ cheaper than the Chromebit.
Compared to the Remix Mini though, I'd say get a Chromebit.
Don't get me wrong, I really like my Remix Mini, but it's sluggish at times & has a few quirks that the average consumer might not like.

There's also the question of ecosystems.
The Remix Mini, since it's full Android, pretty much needs you to already be invested in Android - as does the nVideo Shield.
Likewise, the Apple TV pretty much needs you to already be invest in iOS.
The Chromebit fits comfortably in the middle - whether you're an Android or iOS user, it's a pretty safe bet that you're a Chrome user.

So, who's the Chromebit for?
To me, someone that:
> wants "Smart" features
but
> doesn't want to spend the money on an Apple TV / nVidia Shield
or
> wants a basic/inexpensive PC-like device for their spare monitor
or
> wants to give their child/parent their first PC

If you're one of those target Users, I say absolutely go for it.
Keep in mind you'll need a space mouse (and ideally keyboard unless you're ok with the on-screen one).

If you already have a Smart TV, an Apple TV or an nVidia Shield & don't need a browser added to it, I'd say skip it.

I already have an Apple TV, Remix Mini, XBox One & a number of portable devices, so will I be keeping it? Definitely.
I already had a spare mouse/keyboard & do need a browser added to the TV it's connected to.

Do you have a Chromebit?
Have you been thinking about it?
Have you been looking into "Smart" options?
Let me know.
If you have any other questions or want to know how things work on the Chromebit, leave a Comment & I'll be happy to answer them.

Good stuff but absolutely no service in English whatsoever. I asked "What time do you close tonight" & none of the three employees there at the time knew.

Extremely overpriced - 12.68$ for 2 slices of pepperoni w/ a fountain drink Extremely slow - took almost 15mins Extremely greasy - took 5 napkins to soak up the grease from the 2 slices Extremely weak dough - tasted like cardboard Extremely disappointed - I rarely leave reviews, especially not negative ones, however, this one feels like my responsibility to save people from eating here!

Worst service imaginable! Almost never open & when they are, staff are rude. Don't waste your time at this location - go to the Visitation one instead.

Nice place during the day with great activities year round but once the sun goes down the punk kids come out!
