Have any of you noticed that the Pixel is sensitive to magnets? Much like tablets that go to sleep when a magnetic case is closed on top of it, the Pixel (2015) will go to sleep if you set it on top of a magnet.

I'm not sure if this design is on purpose or just a side-effect of the hardware interacting with the magnets but I noticed this because I was emailing support telling them that my Chromebook just randomly goes to sleep and becomes unresponsive. I couldn't figure out what was causing it and then I noticed that it only happened when I placed my Chromebook on top of my new Moko sleeve, which has a magnetic flap to keep it closed.

As you can see in the video, the Chromebook will go to sleep and be totally and completely unresponsive while it's on the magnet. The power button doesn't even work. You can hold it down till the cows come home and it won't power down. But as soon as you lift it up, the screen instantly turns back on and everything's back to normal. Did anybody else know about this? (by the way, I've tried it with 2 Pixels and got the same exact results)

Just joined the club! I'm loving the pixel but I'm seeing a random screen flicker. Anybody else here notice a slight screen flicker when you're on Developer mode?

Gizmodo: The Lily Is Your Latest Reminder That Flying Cameras Are The Future. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwmu6kkiI
You visit incredible places. You go on adventures. You want someone or something to capture them—and you—for posterity. But instead of reaching out with a selfie stick, you reach into a backpack... and toss a drone up into the air to film it all for you.

This is why the Chromebook Pixel makes sense to some people. 
Like it or not, cloud computing is where we are headed. Apple with it's "light weight" Macbook and Microsoft with it's Windows 10, are evidence of that.  
Mark the date with an alarm. Around May 28, 2015, sellers likely will fill eBay and Craigslist with spanking new Chromebook Pixels, available for bargain prices—if anything less than $999 or $1,299 could be considered a deal. Google's developer conference commences that day, when I expect many attendees will receive and quickly dispatch shiny, new laptops. Big G gave away the pricey Pixel two years ago, and it's good guess will do so again. Smart...

Today I started to notice a noise from the fan. It sounds like it's hitting something and gets louder the faster the fan spins. Anybody else run into this issue?

The noise was obvious from right when I first opened the lid from out of the box. However, when I was asked to give a sample, I had the same issue. After watching a simple Youtube video, and opening a few tabs, the fan noise kicked on, and I was able to record it.

I just may have Google running through my veins...
Introduction
If you know me personally, you'd probably think I'm a Google fanatic. I just love technology and really admire Google's business model so yes, I totally support Google products. 

I love testing out new technology and am often asked questions about my latest "gadgets". I'm usually ahead of the crowd when trying new products. New products that make sense anyways. I'm also very money cautious at the same time so I'm not the type to get into debt because of the next best thing. If it's new and affordable, I'll probably be trying it out. New and way expensive? I'll let other people try that one out...

I do a lot of research online, mostly on technology but I love to learn new things all the time. So I guess you could call me a nerd in that sense. Anything from smart money management to web design/programming to robotics engineering. There are so many free classes online and different things to learn that I'll probably be going to school for the rest of my life...

Chicken breast was horrible. Very bland and service was really bad. They forgot about me almost the whole night. I know this isn't common because other people had great service. I just won't ever go back.
