We tried " all apps except" but that didn't prevent browsing to unwanted apps and attempts to install (which was the goal of the teacher) so we abandon trying to block apps. We do use the "for your domain" part of the App Store to present a curated apps list.
 
A few questions about what you guys do with apps and extensions.

1. Do you "block all apps and extensions except for.." or do you have "allow all apps and extensionsexcept for.."

2. If you block all an then add some ones to the whitelist how do you display those? How do users know which apps they can install or not? It would a pain for them to simply guess, try and install then get the error.

The only thing I can think of is to add those whitelisted apps to the "recommended apps" page.

Is there any better way? They should put an icon on the apps that are available for the domain. That'd be cool.

In Robbinsdale, we limit the apps and extensions that our users can install by specifying the ones that are allowed (and preinstalled). We also have the Recommended for rdale.org section of the webstore enabled and set as the default landing page for the webstore.

Comcast is not providing clear answer to Clear QAM Question.  Will it live or die?
Working on getting answers with help from @ojezap in Twin Cities.

Still getting conflicting messages from Comcast. After they said not going away from two reps, I get voicemail saying Clear QAM is going away. Aaargh.

A la Pogoplug or Wuala's early days. Better be fully encrypted. 
Transporter is an alternative to cloud storage that lets users share, access and protect files.

Now unique strong passwords are not enough. I need to beware of social engineering hacks.

Fonts in Chrome causing "Aw Snap!" crash.
Are other schools having problems with too many fonts being loaded in a student's google apps profile so that Google Chrome crashes when the open documents?  We are seeing it more and more.  Our solution is to login to Google App in Firefox, Open a Doc, go to My Fonts and slowly delete the "my fonts" from their account.  Seems pretty dumb.   We think the fonts are spreading like viruses from one Google doc that has tons of fonts to other users accounts when they share it and collaborate on a doc.   Any one have suggestions or other strategies? 

 Saw this thread:
https://support.google.com/drive/answer/189190?hl=en  
One part that stuck out to me is this:
 
Fonts you add to your list will show in collaborators' font lists.
<p>When you create a Google document, the default font is Arial. If you'd like to change it, simply select a different font from the font drop-down menu in the toolbar.</p> <img src='//storage.googlea

Looks like downloading the beta version of Chrome is an option (and that the issue is resolved in that version): https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!searchin/chrome/google$20drive$20/chrome/CYfu57iCnI4/RiBmQWULO0sJ

Looks like Mozilla is copying Apple's new look in iOS 7 even before it is released.  The Firefox logo loses lighting and shading between version 21 and 23.

This is great news for SiliconDust.  I'm especially anxious to see H.264 encoding.  Thanks DMZ.
 
At CES, we talk with SiliconDust's CEO, Ted Head, about the HDHomeRun products and updates they're rolling out to support the recently announced Project:Connect.

Introduction
Nathaniel works for Edina Public Schools, one of the premier public school systems in Minnesota.  He enjoys new technology challenges and finding ways to integrate them into the classroom for students and teachers.  Starting his career as a first grade teacher keeps him connected to the mission of the schools and reason for exploring new technology.  As a distraction from tech in work, he likes to build and modify computers.   A Windows Media Center enthusiast since 2005, Nathaniel is continually fixing, tweaking and breaking his Home Theater PC.  That is what we call fun.
