What if all this Pixel name and branding will lead to the Andromeda-or-whatever-it-is future OS being named Pixel OS?

Seeing how Google only uses "Pixel" for the really polished high quality devices made me wonder if this is all leading somewhere bigger.

+David Frahm I'd prefer Google OS to Pixel OS. In fact, I would have preferred that from the beginning. Chrome OS and Chrome browser are too confusing.

I'm an app developer who loves Chromebooks, with some time this fall to start a new project.

Would love your ideas as to what app I should create.

So what app do you wish you had, or what need do you see in the Chromebook world?

I would love an app that enables the two following features:
1. Make the two-finger right click only an option that can be replaced by the combination Shift + one finger click.
2. Make it possible to drag anything pointed at on the screen with full control using the combination of a function key + any available standard key. This would lock the drag function until the Escape key has been pressed, at which point the object being dragged would return to its original status.
These two features alone would absolutely revolutionize my use of the Chromebook for the better. And I suspect many other people would also rejoice.

Asus Flip owners: If you are looking for a sleeve case for your Chromebook, this Belkin model fits perfectly -- even though it was designed for a Surface 3 device.

Do the Android apps look good at all on a Chromebook, when the screen resolution is so low?

Like most Android apps have the screen resolution or better as the R11's entire screen. So when the app only gets a third of that in a normal app window, doesn't it look bad?

Would be really great of people would stop cross-posting.

My Google+ feed is full of the same posts across Chromebooks and Chrome OS communities.

Please pick the most relevant one and let it be.

You have to expect it. If you don't want "cross posting" then don't join two identical communities.

When an update regarding Chromebooks happens, which community is 'most relevant'? Chrome OS or Chromebooks?

They're both equally relevant.

I think you are the one that needs to make a choice.

Any resources for parents who want help their kids' school get more Chromebooks, and do more with them?

In my parent role, these problems have the added challenge of figuring out how to sell the idea to my school.

* How do we bridge the gap between schools with limited tech knowledge and parents/kids who are ahead of the curve?
* I want my school to buy more Chromebooks, but they say they don't have the money. So I need to figure out how other schools are doing this, including huge 1:1 rollouts, so I can show my school that this is actually possible.
* My school has some Chromebooks, but they don't use them much. How do I work with teachers to show them what's possible? How do we get teachers educated so they are competent with Chromebooks?

There is a "how to go 1:1 guide" on, top right hand side. A lot of great information in there. There's also this, (list of grants and such). There's also these two articles on bridging the education and technology gaps: and

Hope that helps!

Samsung messages app sometimes just won't type. Have to close it, re-open, then it's fine.

Anyone else seeing this?

On my S6 unlocked. I am using Google keyboard, which should be fine but who knows.
