It all comes down to "familiarity". Is that a good or bad thing? 
I love the new bookmarks manager, I can slip things into folders and find them easily, add notes and search those too.
The old way was not searchable enough, for me.

 I had a buddy that spit nails over the newest Youtube UI changes. He was pretty pissed off, until, I sat down and showed him how to use it and explained how it is better. Maybe Google should release more intuitive help systems and a better introduction to new things like this, so others can understand and be motivated by change. thoughts?
Google's redesign of the Chrome bookmarks manager has begun rolling out to users running the most polished version of the browser. And those users are very unhappy

My son  says it's a "4" and his teacher gave him a Star for his work, but isn't this a "K"? Look at the "ones" column and let him know what you think, a "4" or "k"? #homework   #school

This is great. So far testing it, I was able to copy pages of the Fugue system, including a Character sheet, and send them to one note. With a little work, I was able to fill out that character sheet. This is really cool. Imagine snapping a shot of a skill or table and adding it to your character information tab in one note... yes, it can save as other formats, or even to dropbox, but that isn't what I was playing with :)

This is a really cool setup, free, and does a nice job. Sending files from android to PC/Mac is easy with this. 

Imagine sending an entire game folder to your android as quick as your internet connection. Simple. 
Infinit is the P2P file sharing application that has no limits. Send video, send large videos, send photos. Sharing files was never this easy. It’s file transfer that works.

This article sums up every reason I don't like apple, and maybe you shouldn't either. 

" ‘USB hubs and other USB devices that supply power won't charge your MacBook. Use the supplied USB-C Charge Cable and 29W USB-C Power Adapter to charge your MacBook.’"

 A $119.00 piece of equipment. [ http://store.apple.com/au/product/MJ1K2ZA/A/usb-c-digital-av-multiport-adapter ]

Don't lose your charger! 

(In comparison the Chromebook pixel charger is $60.00 Or $16.00 from a 3rd party called T-Power [ http://goo.gl/eXvVR2 ] and more brands exist.)

Good info.
I really like it when a GM/Storyteller does this.

Yup.  Good tip.  I haven't really needed it because my players typically have been pretty cool with each other, but when I run into this kind of thing ... yup.  Good good.  Thanks.

New youtube interface;

You can see a full video tutorial from Saurav Sinha here, but the gist is this:

Download EditThisCookie from the Chrome web store
Go to YouTube
Open EditThisCookie and click "VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE"
Change the value to Q06SngRDTGA

It's actually really nice!
By now you may have seen YouTube's experimental new web player UI. The new interface has been popping up for some users for a while now, but if you ha... by Liam Spradlin in Design, Google, News, Tips & Tutorials, Videos

I saw an article touting this as a "Android changing" app... I scoffed...
Installed it, and now... yeah... this rocks. 
Open any link from any app, and it opens in a little bubble, that once clicked shows the page, but doesn't close the original program. So nice.
I recommend trying this one, at least.

Fugue is going great, for a small pub. Gumroad is excellent and would encourage others to check it out, though I get more sells from Drivethru. :) If you have a good following on your website then gumraod is excellent.

I will be getting one of these, for sure! 
Got an old HDMI port ready 19" tv laying around or monitor? 
Then you have a PC.

Now, one thing that is missing from this at this time is 
A: Specs
B: Control

Control will probably be from Wireless mouse/KB or Bluetooth.  Of course it's Chrome OS so that means "Chrome remote desktop" will work, i bet.  

I don't see any USB ports on the stick, so a camera maybe well out of the question, unfortunately. So, as a quick and easy Teleconference unit, I would imagine it's not.

Though I cannot rule out voice, since IF it has Bluetooth, then a BT Headset would work fine. 

Lots to wait for and see, I am especially wondering if this will be featured in the upcoming Google I/O!

#ChromeOS   #Chromebit   #google   #chrome  
If you plug the stick into an LCD display or a TV, you can run the sort of software you typically run on a personal computer.

Looks like it does have a USB port, http://www.omgchrome.com/chromebit-a-99-chrome-pc-the-size-of-a-chromecast/

So, USB hub and gameday is on!
