Got a great deal today on some interesting Logitech z600 bluetooth speakers, 2013 vintage, at JB HiFi. Being a display model with a little bit of damage to cloth covering and the last one, got 10% off the $99 price, in their system and when the guy could not find the box he then reduced it to $82. Missing a usb receiver, but I don't think I will need it

I love my Toshiba Chromebook 2, bit it does handle photos pretty poorly. I don't do anything crazy, but there is still definite slow down and crashing when I'm using polarr to edit raw files. It's not a big deal, but it'd be nice to not have to be careful.

Just some ramblings about the twit.tv site.
I use chrome via a chromebox and twit front page image takes a while to load. The jpg is 303KB, I used some online converter to webp and 90% webp is 164KB and the 60 is 70KB. Maybe twit images could be displayed in webp for android, chrome and opera. There is a javascript library that can be used on other browsers.

Edit: The sever could decide which format image is used.

Just on the chromecast and how google would know usage numbers, they do have an opt in to give then stats and any chromecast to youtube or nextflix, etc, the connections are between the chromecast and the service. So netflix and youtube would know the numbers.

Start of ramblings - 
Hi guys, am a new listener, was a longtime Linux Outlaws fan,
have just stopped listening to another linux podcast after one of the host had a a very long google rant and that his solution was to move to an iPhone. So please keep your google rants short and based on facts and not FUD from MS, etc . :)

Thanks from an old suse, now chromebox crouton Xfce, android, rasp pi linaro, debian and ubuntu user.

Was a nice day here in Sydney, bit cold if not in the sun, only 17c.

Sydney has been called the emerald city, maybe that's where you got emerald from.

+seb mitchell Yeah, got the US model and just got a $15 us to Aus power coverter from target. It's a bit clunky but it works just fine. Have a look at a few Aussie online IT stores and compare the price as the delivery and Aussie dollar may hurt you but for under $300 delivered you can't go wrong.

I had to take a trip in the car so the audio version was fine. I sure they fix it when they get to work in the morning.

Was looking for a podcast that was chrome related and found material, seem more of a general one, but seem cool. Keen to know if there are any current chrome podcast.
