Here is a good story on what Chromebooks are all about since we started. I am also glad I could talk briefly to David about our hardware requirements process.

Looking for a 64-bit ARM Chromebook? Look no further!

I know some people who have worked long long hours on this. Congrats on the announcement!
IFA 2016 is now in full swing over in Berlin (with 9to5Google’s Stephen Hall at the show), and among other insane laptops, Acer has today announced the new Chromebook R13, a bigger brother to…

We techies are impossible to please, don't pay too much attention to whining :) I know some non-techies who love their Chromebooks and curse whenever they have to do something with a Windows PC..

How long until cancelled or sold off? :( 
Google Fiber is reportedly well short of goal to get 5 million subscribers.

Finally sorted out all the details to get my latest network setup going: by choosing a specific SSID at my house, I end up on a VLAN that routes all internet traffic through the VPN-peered router at my place in Sweden. End result: I can watch the same contents on SVTplay as when I am actually at the place.

I know, I know, tunnel bear works pretty well, but it costs money and this way I can just configure the Chromecast to the same network too, which is really convenient.

Anyone else having problems with Bluetooth since their phone updated to Nougat? Lots of issues here with my 5X peering with our cars, getting stuck on connections. Or audio connecting, controls working but audio still playing on phone speakers not over BT.

Regressions like these are really frustrating as a user. Especially in the car since the whole point is to be handsfree.

Bluetooth audio has been a bit troublesome for me, but mostly working. Bluetooth network tethering, though, has been unusable: generally, it just doesn't work, but now and then it'll work for a bit and then cut out again.

I find this intensely frustrating, since I rely heavily on this feature and it worked perfectly well pre-Nougat. And of course, I can't just downgrade. GAAAH.

(I keep meaning to try Wi-Fi tethering -- I don't know whether it's equally broken. But I wouldn't be able to use it much anyway, since it costs so much more battery, so it doesn't make a huge difference to me even if it works.)

This is between two Nexus 5Xs, by the way -- no rooting or anything. You'd think Google would be able to get this stuff right on what is essentially their own hardware.

Very impressive CPU delivery by Apple. Single-thread performance in same class as Intel desktop.

Too bad it's not a platform that third parties can build with, and no other ARM SoC vendor is close to this in mobile yet.

+Mohammed Salim the whole point is that they are different platforms, and certain tests can give you a definite indicator of which phone is faster at running the same apps. For example, one of the tests compared Apples to Apples, if you'll forgive the pun, of the same list of applications run simultaneously on the iPhone 7 and Galaxy 7 Edge. The iPhone was able to run the test TWICE to the Galaxy's one run thru. I think the Edge is the most beautiful device ever made and would pick it over the iPhone regardless of speed, but it is impressive at how fast the processor - or rather overall device since we're talking about graphics, memory, etc - performs. The devices certainly don't have to be the same platform or code base to be able to get a valid performance indicator. In an even more simplified example, its kind of like having a man and a woman, a human and a cheetah, a car and motorcycle run a race - one will be faster, one will be slower despite the vast differences! :-)

It's been a while. Turns out they pour those 22oz beer bottles into a huge cup at this concert venue. #opticalexperiments

Evidente AB
Odinsgatan 13, Göteborg
PCBs or P</b>rinted C</b>ircuit B</b>oards: Designing them is easier and cheaper than you might think! Either for giving a professional look to a hobby project, creating a cool novelty gadget that will catapult a startup to success or implementing the "brains" of industrial equipment, knowing how to use CAD software to design and eventually fabricate a PCB, is a valuable skill that can come in handy. In this practical workshop, you will learn the...

So, who drives this one? Seen on the commute this morning. but I never caught up so I could see the driver.

I approve, btw. :-)
