You can edit the Chrome Spell Check dictionary!

When typing a post have you ever added the wrong spelling of a word  to the Chrome Spell Check dictionary? Did you know there is a way to edit the words you have added to that reference source?

The custom dictionary is not the easiest thing to find, but once there, you can add or delete words quickly and painlessly.

You start from the hotdog menu in the top right of your browser window. Here are the steps to get there:

hot dog menu → settings → show advanced settings → language and input settings → edit custom dictionary

Once there, you will see a box similar to the image below.You will see all the words you have manually added to the dictionary over time. If you hover over the far right side of a word you can click on the "x" and delete that word if it is in error. You can manually add words in that box as well.

I hope you find this info helpful.

Did this right away! Put my children's names and anything else I could think of that I type regularly and have to tell spell check to ignore.

Get a $1.99 album for your Chromebook
 
Bruno Mars album on sale for only $1.99!

Bruno Mars has said that Unorthodox Jukebox represents his freedom, and it lives up to its title as Mars moves through genres and eras, veering mostly into retro soul. The follow-up to his Grammy-winning 2010 debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans opens with the '80s pop-influenced "Young Girls" and lead single "Locked Out of Heaven." "I got a body full of liquor with a cocaine kicker and I'm feeling like I'm 30 feet tall," Mars indulges on "Gorilla," an animalistic sex jam. "Natalie" and "Money Make Her Smile," about a gold-digger and stripper respectively, follow in that gritty tone, while the retro-disco "Treasure" paired with "Moonshine" play out like a cinematic love story.

Go check it out now on Google Play:

Enjoy!

Quick couple of questions: is this the newest hp Chromebook https://m.cdwg.com/shop/products/HP-Chromebook-14-G4-14in-Celeron-N2840-Chrome-OS-4-GB-RAM-16-GB-SS/3834848

And is it still a good buy? Looking at getting thirty of them for classroom use.

Also, does an HD screen on an 11.6 inch screen not work because if the size? I have an HD screen on my 15inch acer and that works well but it's a lot larger.
Make the move to a cloud-based infrastructure with the HP Chromebook 14. Get down to business with Intel Celeron processors, an optional Full HD IPS panel, Citrix -certified VDI compatibility, and access to Google Apps for Work. Technical Specifications ...

Chromecast stopped working in google play movies ?  Chromebook pixel, stable channel on Version 48.0.2564.92 (64-bit)

Done powerwash, factory reset and even restored fresh factory image from usb recovery.  Chromecast works before updates but as soon as it updates on the stable channel you no longer get a cast icon in the google movie player.  casting from extension casts the whole page.

Problem is persistent every time despite restoring factory image from usb 3 times now.  Has anyone else come across this problem with the latest stable channel updates?

wow imagine these with chromebooks :)
Check out AirBar by Neonode. It is a sensor bar that you attach beneath your PC screen. Then you can pinch, swipe, zoom and scroll to your hearts delight. Launching on CES in January and is available for pre-order right now. Plug-and-Touch, when you need it!

By a dude mired in the old ways -- A not so hot review:

Chrome OS loses the race to the bottom

http://www.cnet.com/au/products/lenovo-ideapad-100s-chromebook/
The Lenovo 100S Chromebook delivers on the promise of adequate performance at a low price, but dirt-cheap Windows 10 machines have it beat there.

Maybe Chrome OS related.

Google is reportedly releasing a VR headset this year http://www.engadget.com/2016/02/07/google-vr-headset-leak/ via Engadget Android
It would build VR support directly into Android, too.

Did any of you see this last night? If not, grab your Chromebooks and watch it now it was a free live event.

Why am I posting it here? Because I cast YouTube and watched it from my Acer 15 Chromebook which I love!

When everyone else complains about Windows I just laugh and say, "No problems for me I got a Chromebook." Oh yeah!

Enjoy!

Costco Chromecast offer
 
Costco has a sweet offer on Chromecast too!

Buy a two pack of Chromecasts to receive $10 off AND get $12 of Google Play credit. This deal works out just a tad better than other store offers now, including the Google Store.

EDIT: 2/6/16 Just got back from a trip to BJ's Wholesale and they are running the exact same 10+12 offer too!

Also note that many items online at Costco can also be purchased by non-members with a small surcharge. With all the deals running now for Chromecast, if you need another, now is a great time to pick one up.

If you are outside the U.S. and see a great deal on Chromecast or some great Chromecast Entertainment, please feel free to share in our Chromecast Central community:

+ElY Adel I got an Acer 11 first but didn't like the screen. I think your new one is different now I read they have a better screen fixing that. My problem was I had to have it at the right angle to see it clearly. The rest of it was great so I went for the 15 and was glad I did the screen is great even from the side.

I think the Acer Chromebook is the best one and you are going to love your choice. I had to send mine in for fixing once but had a good experience so only minded the turn around time which wasn't bad.

My Chromebook totally lost it's OS for some reason that was never made clear and I couldn't recover it the normal way but it works great now. I'm still glad I got it, it sounds great, the screen is beautiful and no Windows! Believe me you will not even miss it. Enjoy you got the best brand!

Great $0.99 movie rental for your Chromebook
 
Rent Ex Machina in HD for only 99 cents!

Excellent movie, especially for sci-fi fans!

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company's brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.

Here is a direct link over on Google Play:
