CloudReady / installing from USB/SD  - 
 
For those using Neverware CloudyReady (Chromium OS), I found very helpful article to get Netflix and other protected content working with Chromium OS.

I was able to get Netflix working with Chromium OS on several older laptops.

Yes unfortunately my experience with neverware cloud ready is to try the live usb option first and not to install it unless you are absolutely happy with it. While Chromium OS will give you a general idea of the Chrome OS environment you will have much better experience by using a genuine Chromebook with the official Chrome OS installed that is specific to each different device. You will be able to actually get the real feel of Chrome OS and enjoy a much more polished experience!

Be quick
 
Acer Store on Ebay just got stock in on the i5 models

If anyone has been following this model, you know they only get one or two units in at a time and they are gone quick. Retail on the Intel Core i5 Acer 15 (white or black) is $500 new. Pick it up now as a refurb for half price.

The black model on the left is the unit I personally purchased about 3 months ago. If you want great performance and a nice large screen, this is the way to go.

The i5 models both come with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of SSD storage.

Here are direct links to both models:

Black:

If you would like to keep up with the latest new models, news, and deals on Chromebooks I also recommend following me as I update my profile regularly.

This is more an issue due to a lack of knowledge of Chrome OS, when there is a native client wrapper to open the Google Play Music (or any web app or website) as a windowed hosted app with desktop notifications. So really there is no actual need to create a native Windows or OSX desktop app when you can just make a Chrome hosted app.

Better control of OS workflows is something that I wish that Google would address within the settings of Chrome OS, so the default behavior of web apps via the Application Launcher should be as hosted apps unless specified otherwise and bookmarks open as tabs.

If we want users and prospective users to see and treat Chrome OS as more than a "just browser" then the default workflow should reflect that.

If you're a Google Play Music listener and you'd prefer to use a desktop client instead of the browser, you have some options.

+James Cridland On the same page with you now. Yes I noticed that too, and what typically do for apps that I need access to the extension list I will set the web app that I need chromecast support in to either open as a separate tab or full screen which the top plane with the extensions will drop down with mouseover. I wished the same happened with windowed mode.

Security researchers from Ben-Gurion University Cyber Security Research Center (CSRC) have unearthed a vulnerability in Google Chrome that can be exploited to make copies of DRM-protected video streams. The problem affects all Chromium-based browsers, and makes it possible to circumvent Widevine encryption technology Google uses to secure streams.

Much respect to Wizkid for sitting out the BET Awards. #WestAfricaStandUp
There is a lot of shock over Wizkid - the biggest African act in the last two years - missing out on the BET Award for Best International Act - Africa

Though we're a bit dubious about where the survey may be originating from, if this Google Opinion Reward survey is legit, it could point to a new segment of Chromebook. Thoughts?

Android Studio uses Swing for user interface which is not present on Android. It would be an impossible task to port it to Android. Right now, Android developers are not supposed to develop applications on Chromebook itself but I understand the desire. You just have to take the matter into your own hands and use Crouton. If you can make experience easier for others (a single Crouton + Android Studio installer or installing Crouton into container), I am sure a lot of people will appreciate that.
