I’ve already showed how to run full Linux apps on a #Pixelbook using Project #Crostini but this video explains both what Project Crostini is and how it works.

Google Smart Lock can manage and remember your passwords on a #Chromebook, but it can actually generate strong passwords for you too.

Here's how to set it up and use it.

Looks like the Files app on #Chromebooks will get a new "Manage in Drive" option that redirects to Google Drive for advanced options.

Although I haven't seen the issue on my Pixelbook, I saw some folks on forums and social media saying their device was randomly rebooting every few minutes. The good news is that Google has fixed the Pixelbook reboot issue with a minor update to version 65 of the Stable Channel.

Here's how to check your Chrome OS platform version to see if you have the fix.

Good deal if you have an older laptop or Chromebook and want a Pixelbook.
Scanning the weekly Best Buy ad uncovered this gem of a deal for those interested in a new Google Pixelbook. Through May 5, 2018 if you trade-in a working laptop — an old Chromebook, maybe? — Best Buy will put a Pixelbook in your hands and $150 back in your pocket.
