Does anyone know how to change the Google+  stream from two to three columns in ChromeOS. I have a Toshiba CB35 and cannot seem to get beyond two columns even though there seems to be plenty of real estate for a third one.

The only setting is for one column vs multi-column - you cannot choose the number of additional columns.  You could try zooming out the page by holding the Ctrl key and tapping the minus key.  I have one machine I managed to bump from two columns to three this way.

??? Where are the options to dock windows on the left or right side of the screen? Do I miss something?

So here they are! #officeonline   web apps for Chrome.  These web apps are nice but I was expecting it to be work offline and also many would be thinking about Google sign-in integration in this but this is not the case here. But it's very useful to have these if you want a familiar experience while working on Word doc as Drive makes them weird. If they add offline support then it will be 5 stars from me. For now they're just links for the respective apps.

I would prefer detachable keyboard but this is closest to Chrome tablet (Chromepad?) you will get right now... (In June, actually.)

There are pictures of a Sony Chromebook, and rumors of it's release, but I guess they'll never join the party now.

A Chrome API to control the lightbar of the Chromebook Pixel doesn't exist yet but that doesn't prevent me to write a Chrome App to create my custom lightbar sequences.

Obviously, I still need to be in Developer Mode¹ for now since this Chrome App basically generates the shell commands that I can either paste or run as a shell file to a Chrome OS Shell.

As usual, the source code is publicly available at https://code.google.com/p/lightbar/source/browse/.

The LightBar App is available now for those on Beta Channel on the Chrome Web Store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lightbar/mapojmhlokibmailhcefcgdphleiailc

Has anyone had any luck getting an external touchscreen monitor to work with Chrome OS?  I've paired a Dell S2340T with a Samsung Chromebook and an Acer C720, but neither seems to (completely) work.

Chrome OS recognizes touches, but those touches only register as clicks on certain features.

  - I can launch Chrome via touch, and I can create new tabs and close existing tabs within Chrome.  I can expand Chrome's settings.  I can maximize, restore, minimize and close Chrome.  I can even touch and drag the Chrome window around the screen.
  - I cannot click any links within any page Chrome is rendering, or change any of Chrome's settings.  I cannot expand the System Tray.  Touching these features treat the feature as if I'm hovering over it with a cursor.

I'd like to pick up a few Asus Chromeboxes for kiosk use, but I need to be sure that users will be able to navigate from page to page within a webapp via touchscreen.

Part of me thinks it's just this monitor, but that doesn't seem likely since it's able to register touches as clicks on some events.  I haven't been able to dig up much about people trying to do this.  Any ideas?

I wish that Microsoft would develop packaged office online apps, so that the apps can access my device attached storage such as usb storage.

People just do not realize that all the major OS's have different OS's in mobile and larger computing devices. The difference is, Google uses two names and MS and Apple use one name for it's os.

According to "them", support for the DVD drives is coming. It's just not very high on the priority list, unfortunately.

It's Chrome Tip Day Today!

You can search for apps by typing their uppercase letters in the App Launcher Search box.

For example, the *C*hrome *R*emote *D*esktop App can easily be found by typing "CRD".
