Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

Play Music Chrome App simply works without having the Play Music Website opened now. Yes, simply run it and click on "I'm feeling lucky radio". That's all!

Go give it a try by installing it at  https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fahmaaghhglfmonjliepjlchgpgfmobi/ if it's not already done yet.

Nutrition is not a solid science. In time: fructose corn syrup is fine in reasonable amounts. Now: it's death in a can. Who wants to listen to all this crap? What's harmful to health is popular science reporting. More harmful stress over what we eat has been caused by these nutrition obsessions than actual damage by supposedly bad diets. Everything in moderation, regular moderate exercise, and you'll be as fine as possible given luck and your endowments (which are also luck). Oh- and for Pete's sake, do get vaccinated, don't smoke, and do wear your seat belt. That stuff IS solid science.
One of the longstanding arch-villains in the American diet is being demoted.

Chromium developers have been working on letting third-party filesystems and cloud storage services integrate with the Chrome OS file manager for well over a year.

Google has confirmed that a second generation Chromebook Pixel will go on sale 'soon'.

They're saying same price ($1,300).  Given the quality of upcoming Chromebooks (and even some existing ones) at the super low price points, as much as I'd like a Pixel, I doubt I'd buy one.

I'd like to take my hat off to +Yoichiro Tanaka who has built a cool Chrome OS App that allows you to access a SFTP server directly from the Files app.

From a developer point of view, this app is wonderful. It features the young File System Provider¹ API to create file systems, that can be accessible from the Files app. And there's also a Native Client module which handles communications to a SSH Server via SFTP protocol thanks to the libssh2 library² and nacl_io³. Please make sure you take a look at the public source code⁴.

SFTP File System is available now on the Chrome Web Store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/sftp-file-system/gbheifiifcfekkamhepkeogobihicgmn

You will be able to attach some scanners directly to a Chromebook/box.
 
Lorgnette the young service to handle document scanner in Chrome OS is available in Beta Channel. That means we can now play with it through the Document Scan Chrome API. So here it is! A tiny Chrome App to scan your paper documents directly from your Chrome Device.

Be aware that only SANE-compatible¹ Scanners will work out of the box for now since Lorgnette relies on the open-source project SANE² ("Scanner Access Now Easy"). Therefore make sure your document scanner is in the list before.

In this sample, you'll notice that all your scanned documents are available in a new "Document Scan" section of the Files App thanks to the fileSystemProvider³ chrome API. Check out the source code in the GitHub Repository⁴ and see how nicely Polymer Paper Elements⁵ fit together in the app.

One last thing... if you're in Developer Mode, you might want to open your shell and tweak this command to unleash the power of scanning:
sudo scanimage --resolution=600 --mode=color > /tmp/test.pnm && pnm2png /tmp/test.pnm > ~/Downloads/document.png

The Scan Chrome App is available now on the Chrome Web Store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/scan/pmnllmkmjilbojkpgplbdmckghmaocjh and will be updated as the API grows.
