When Albert Einstein met Charlie Chaplin

Einstein said, “What I admire most about your art, is its universality. You do not say a word, and yet … the world understands you.”

“It’s true”, replied Chaplin, “But your fame is even greater: The world admires you, when nobody understands you.”

great resources for Chrome
 
Introducing An All New +Chrome UP - Your Source For Everything Chrome OS

After more than a year in the making, the new ChromeUP.com launches today.

The Chrome OS community is a robust collection of passionate bloggers, striking developers, humble hackers, savvy support gurus, and yes, ordinary users. There are countless websites that should be default bookmarks for any Chromebook owner, and everyone should be subscribed to our news resources.

Unfortunately, as the Chrome OS community continues to rapidly expand, locating the great resources is becoming difficult. For example, +Chrome Story has an absolutely outstanding list of 100 Tips for Chromebook Owners. +OMG! Chrome! produces some of the finest beginner infographics I've ever seen. To a new Chromebook owner who doesn't know about either of those sites though, the resources might as well not exist.

This is the mission of Chrome UP, to compliment the existing Chrome OS community. Not replace it. We'll provide gap-bridging content where appropriate, and promote existing content when possible.

That isn't to say that Chrome UP will be barren of valuable content.

Our powerful chrome device comparison tool allows you to easily see specifications side-by-side. It's custom built and uses data from several sources for accuracy (and, by chance, if you do find an error let us know!).

We've also started a sprouting Chrome OS accessories database, that we hope you can play a role in building. This is something the community has longed for time and time again, and we plan on making it a reality.

Our old tutorials have been seamlessly merged into the new site, and most old bookmarks should take you to their new home. We'll also be adding more tutorials in due time, so be sure to stay tuned for those (and pass along any suggestions you may have!).

Oh, and we'll have something neat for the Chrome OS wallpapers soon as well. More on that later, it's taking more time to build than expected (but will be completely worth the wait!).

Today's launch is a milestone, but we're not relaxing yet. This will be a living site with daily updates to content. Some pages need expanding, we know, but we had to start somewhere, otherwise we'd be building for another year.

On a personal note, this doesn't mean I'll be any less involved in the community. I'll still be actively moderating and contributing to the Chromebooks Community here on Google+, I still plan on guest contributing to OMG! Chrome!, and you’ll still be able to find me weekly on the +Practical Chrome Podcast.

Finally, I'd like to give a huge amount of thanks to everyone who contributed to this coming together, both directly and indirectly. There are far too many of you to name individually, but you know who you are.

Feedback and constructive criticism welcome!
For everything Chrome OS. We feature tips, tutorials, pre-sale checklists and more for Google's Chromebook, Chromebox, and Chromebase.

Sorry, Microsoft, you blew it again.

Microsoft announced today Office for iPad.  But is it free like iWork or Google Docs or Libre Offce?  No.  You can only view documents unless you purchase a subscription to Office 365.  *facepalm*  Why in world where the alternatives are just as good or superior to Office would anyone pay for Office except out of habit?

I, personally, stopped using Office in 2006 when iWork came out.  I discovered Pages, Numbers, and Keynote to be easier to use because of a more elegant UI, created just as solid of documents, exported Office Compatible docs, and in Keynote's case was far superior in creating presentations.

Microsoft, if they truly wish to compete needs to COMPETE.  When Google and Apple offer free software with cloud integration, coming late to the party with a subscription model is a non-starter.  Satya Nadella's first product release as Microsoft's CEO doesn't look innovative or the kind of change Microsoft needs to grow again.  It looks like more of the same, just slightly tweaked.

My column this week looks at how our next generation smartphones could be as thin as a credit card, as bendable as rubber, waterproof, and have batteries that last for a week. All thanks to "graphene," a new wonder material.
The material has the potential to change the electronics industry, and recently researchers have focused on how to produce it commercially.
