Just picked up a Toshiba Chromebook 2 - I mostly like it so far, though I think I may be overtaxing it. I have installed crouton, installed steam on the linux side, and started streaming games to it.... 

However, the Chromebook ends up "freezing" quite a bit, both on the chrome OS side and linux (KDE specifically). I can move the cursor but cannot click on tabs, open the task manager, or interact with the screen in any way. The only way I can rectify the situation is to shut the machine completely down. 

Anybody else running into to this or have any tips? Thanks!

Lot of good points here - so the games aren't being run locally. I have a gaming desktop that is doing the heavy lifting, and streaming the video to the chromebook. 

It is running the Intel chipset. I'm returning it, I think I'm trying to do a little too much with the chromebook :-). I'm going to probably spend a little more money and buy a laptop with a dedicated GPU

Pretty wild
A startup creates a physical keyboard for touch-screen devices, like smartphones or tablets, that appears when you need to type and disappears when you're done. CNET's Sumi Das tries it out. Read this article by Sumi Das on CNET News.

Great article on the "Big Data" explosion that has occurred in basketball due to the SportVU project. All of this new information has enabled people much smarter than I to come up with advanced ways track players. I imagine Josh Smith's "EPV" is atrocious. #basketball   #sports ( via +Grantland )
With an ocean of new statistical information available, the NBA could be on the verge of understanding the value of every single movement on the court. Welcome to the era of EPV.

so freaking cool #throughglass  
 
We had the opportunity to try out Google Glass this week, and our keepers were curious to see if it would help them in caring for the animals. It also gave the rest of us the chance to see the animals through the eyes of the keepers, as they went behind-the-scenes to work with the koalas, eagles, giraffe and a sooty owl. #GoogleGlass
