RAM? More and faster is what we want and it's coming to Chromebooks.
We’ve come across some interesting info regarding a new board, codenamed ‘Reef’. What we know about it thus far is pretty sparse, but one particular characteristic of this board i…

Hopefully, all the current 2 GB CB models will soon dissappear in favour of 8 GB models.

Wow, I realised how I like the command line "Crosh" => [CTRL+ALT+T] in Chrome/Chromium OS.
I would recommend command: help_advanced
It is simple to learn quite elegant.
(My example: chrome-extension://nkoccljplnhpfnfiajclkommnmllphnl/html/crosh.html)

I use this all the time with Chromium OS because I've got local access to SSH Shell. Very useful indeed!

Along with seamless upgrades and built-in virus protection, Chrome OS (and Chromium OS) devices offer an elegant and consistent user interface and experience across many different vendors -- free of any bloatware from third-parties for now. With the addition of Google Play integration, there's a slight chance this may change.

I can pick up and use Chrome OS device (such as ChromeBook) or even my own home-built Chromium Desktop PC and be assured of consistent user interface.

While working with MacOS and Windows systems, I felt compelled to perform clean install of the OS for new systems for best performance and less clutter (especially with Windows systems). For ChromeOS, there is no need to perform clean install (although PowerWash is there if needed).

This could be a really big deal! Pressure-sensitive displays are coming to Chromebooks!

The 2955u in my Acer c720 is more powerful than the Braswell processors being used in a number of Chromebooks. However Braswell is still being used in shipping products, even as yet unreleased products it seems. So it makes sense Google and those OEMs would put effort into that processor which the 2955u does not get since it is no longer being used in any current sale devices.
It's a tough nut for me but you really can't argue the practical and reasonable decision on the part of Google I think. I'll be happy if they eventually do put Android out for my c720. But if they don't I won't blame them.

If 'Kevin' is Samsung, can it be a Pixel, too? There may just be a chance!
Over the past few days there’s been a bit of back and forth concerning the actual manufacturer of ‘Kevin’. Around here, we lean towards Samsung being behind the production of R…

If it is a "Samsung Pixel" device then it's chaos. Cats and dogs living together. Crazyness.
Google has been very specific up to now that PIxel devices are Google devices. Nexus devices are co-designed and co-marketed with other companies in the tablet and phone space. And some previous Chrome devices have been heavily co-marketed as having Google input in design but were always branded by the third party.
If Google launches a co-branded Pixel device then I completely give up to the vertigo. I just don't know which way is up any more. The bubbles seem to be traveling in all directions.

Times New Roman is often a required font for school writing. Chromebooks are also popular for school. But, the two don't mix: in an odd way.

Here's a follow-up to the pressure-sensitivity coming to Chromebook screens. We have the actual screen model and it looks to be exclusive at this point!

Another bug rears it's head. Here's a quick summary of what it going on and a decent work around. Still hope this gets fixed quickly.
