10+ years in the IT industry. I focus on Google Apps, Chromebooks and now Google Glass but I'm easily distracted by anything tech related or the word Google on it.

PSA - Chrome OS 72 (stable in early Feb) will include a firmware update for some devices. During the firmware update, the device will be powered on but screen will be black for 30-60 seconds. You can see what this looks like now by updating a device to 72 beta channel. After the OS update is installed and the user reboots the device (or logs off), the firmware update will occur.

Short video of what the whole process looks like (apologies for finger smudges and camera man in the shot) https://photos.app.goo.gl/TnJCgDR1ceRqfSAg6

I've created an extension which shows detailed system information as the device wallpaper. It makes it easy to quickly get specifics about a given device including:
- Serial number, Asset ID and location (managed devices only)
- CPU, memory and storage
- Logged in user, time of login and current IP address

give it a shot and let me know your thoughts!

Tip of the day: Ever notice how users NEVER restart their devices when an update is pending? You can encourage timelier update completion by forcing user logoff when the lid is closed.

I've created a small extension that provides a quick link to get information like model, serial number, MAC addresses, asset id, etc for a managed Chrome device. Please feel free to give it a try.

Be aware that in order for the extension to work properly it must be force installed from the admin console and you must be logged in as a user in the same G Suite instance as the enrolled Chrome device. The first time you run the extension you'll need to grant it rights as an admin in your domain to lookup the device information, after that it should just work.

The days on that dust-covered, buggy and insecure router in your closet are now numbered...

This was a very interesting read. I learned I was O-Negative (universal donor) back in college and could tolerate a needle in my arm so I've been giving blood ever since.

It's too bad that the "Blood Type Diet" is a bunch of pseudo-science though. I really wanted to use it to justify steak on the grill to my wife tonight :-)

GYB 0.26 released

I've pushed out a new version of Got Your Back (GYB), a open-source tool for backing up and restoring Gmail. Support for restoring mbox files (like those exported from Google Vault, Google Takeout and GAM mailbox audits) to a Gmail account is now included. not to mention a number of other improvements and bug fixes.

Also, I've moved GYB over to github.com since code.google.com is being deprecated.
