Connect Chromebook to VGA. What about audio?
I'm looking at 13" Dell Chromebook with HDMI video out. I want to use for presentations using clients projectors. I know I can buy HDMI to VGA converter, but wondering if I can simultaneously amplify audio out from headphone jack?

Anyone know how to clean a virus out of a Mac? Don't mind paying for software, if it works very well.

Poor digital hygiene on my part.

I've infected Safari with some evil that keeps popping up ads unless I disable Java. (Losing lots of functionality). I've cleared cache and used CleanMyMac to uninstall an app that I had caught. Still have the problem. Help!

I'm piloting a new edtech course for pre-service teachers and sharing some do's and don'ts.
