Airing tonight on BBC Radio 4 at 20:00 GMT is "My Teacher Is an App, The Classroom of the Future". I think everyone here will not be surprised to learn that the Chromebook is part of that future.

This totally make sense to me. Most of the time I consider lectures to be pointless. In some classes I'm forced to go just because we have some quizzes. And all of my homework is through different websites and software.

Recent Samsung Smart TVs support Chrome's Native Client technology (including PNaCl). It was news to me.

I really need to find my old tikitag reader.
 
I'm really excited to announce that the long awaited¹ Chrome App NFC Library is now open-source at https://github.com/GoogleChrome/chrome-nfc

With this simple library, you can now build a Chrome App that communicates over USB with NFC Readers such as the ACR122U and SCL3711. It means you can read and write NFC Tags and even emulate some!

If you happen to have one USB NFC Reader next to you right now, plug it to your Chrome Device and play with the Chrome NFC App sample² we've created (just) for you. Having some issues? Look at the caveats³ section of the official chrome documentation.

And please, please! Feel free to submit feature requests, we're eager to see what developers will come up with this brand new library.
