I have just tried out the new +Spotify browser-based player, and it works on the #Chromebook! Hooray! Today is definitely a red letter day!

Hooray for #Chromies !
Today I am attempting to do a full days work in my office 'armed' only with an ARM Chromebook (see what I did there?).

I am now half way through the day and felt the need to augment it with a wide screen monitor via HDMI and a wireless USB mouse - I wouldn't need to do this at home, on my lap, but felt needed for a work environment.

I do most work via a browser so it felt very nice but I used many more tabs than usual and so was pushing its memory (causing awkward tab reloads). Also playing music simultaneously via Google Play Music. The memory issue is the only important issue I found which may be addressed by OS improvements or opting for the higher-memory model - the 550 or perhaps the Chrombox. I shall continue and see how far I can go.
