Toshiba Chromebooks  - 
 
Sale at Best Buy
 

Full HD Toshiba Chromebook 2 now only $249!

$80 off!  Best Buy is running a sale this week on the fanless version of the Toshiba Chromebook 2. This is the 1080p unit that everyone keeps talking about the screen. The Chromebook 2 runs on an Intel Bay Trail processor, has 4GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage. 

The Toshiba Chromebook 2 normally retails for $330. Best Buy just had this on sale a couple of weeks ago for $270 but the price is even slashed even further today. With Toshiba possibly getting out the Chromebook business I figured we would see great sales like this.

You can see more specs and details over on Best Buy:

I'm guessing it's not the 2015 model. 2015 goes for 300

Anyone else experiencing the next annoying thing?

I make a bluetooth connection with a sound bar and that goes well but after a time of inactivity (and that can be 5 minutes) the connection falls away and my music no longer plays on the sound bar.
With android phone, I don't have this problem. Only with my chromebook.
Anyone knows how to make sure that he does not close the connection? Oh yeah, I'm using battery when it happens.

Yeah, perhaps but it really happens even when I'm typing text so, it is really more annoying then at first glance.

Third one this past week or so
 
Chrome Extension for Google Keep!

Google released another "Save to" extension today. This time it is for Google Keep. Find a link or image on the web and you can save it straight to a Google Keep note. This is the third "Save to" extension Google has released this past week. We now can now save links to a Google Bookmark type site, Google Inbox, or now, Google Keep.
There must be an internal contest at Google for creating Chrome extensions that save links. After "Save to Google" and "Save to Inbox", there's now a Chrome extension for Google Keep that lets you create notes about the page ...

This looks a little like Google Stars
 
New "Save to Google" extension now out!

It looks the Google Save site is not restricted to bookmarking image search results. The "Save to Google" Chrome extension lets you save any web page and add tags. "One spot for webpages and Images: Your saved webpages and saved images from Google Image Search will live together at google.com/save," mentions Google.

In fact, the saving feature from Google Image Search actually bookmarks the web page that includes the image and automatically selects the image you are saving to display it next to the site's name. The Chrome extension lets you save any web page and you can pick an image from that page.
