[Update: Live] Chrome may soon add ability to import new tab backgrounds from Google Photos

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Google added the option to customize Chrome's new tab page with a very familiar-looking selection of wallpapers last month. But if you thought Google was done working on the new tab page, you'd be wrong. About Chromebooks recently discovered a new change in Chromium Gerrit that'll allow users to import their new tab backgrounds from Google Photos as well.

But if you thought Google was done working on the new tab page, you'd be wrong. About Chromebooks recently discovered a new change in Chromium Gerrit that'll allow users to import their new tab backgrounds from Google Photos as well.

Here's the Gerrit entry ('NTP' is short for 'new tab page'):

[NTP] Add Google Photos option for custom backgrounds

Allow users to select one of their photos from Google Photos and set it as the NTP background image.

STAEDTLER’s Noris digital stylus for Chromebooks is coming later this summer

Monday, June 25th, 2018

With the wide variety of touchscreen Chromebooks on the market, it only makes sense that a stylus would come onto the market at some point. In partnership with Google, STAEDTLER has confirmed that the education-focused Noris digital stylus for Chromebooks will be available by the end of summer. This is almost certainly the companion stylus to the leaked Acer Chrome OS tablet.

There's actually already a STAEDTLER Noris digital stylus on the market, but it's intended for Samsung devices.

Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (2018) review: Costs too much for what you get

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Chromebooks now spread across a wide range of price points. You have the ultra-premium Pixelbook, complete with a really high cost, and mid-range options like the Samsung Chromebook Pro. Then you have the budget models — it's still surprising to me that you can pick up a functional laptop that does most everything that a normal person needs for a few hundred bucks.

Acer is one of the dominant players in the lower-end space, typically offering solid machines for very attractive prices.

20 of the best keyboard compatible Android games for Chrome OS

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

In light of the recent sale for the Google Pixelbook (that ends today, so make sure to grab one while you can), I thought it might be helpful to roundup some of the better Android games that are compatible with Chrome OS and work well with the keyboard. I for one hate getting fingerprints all over my screen, plus I also find a keyboard and mouse to be the optimal way to play a lot of games.

eSIM support coming to Chrome OS, may work with Project Fi

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Chromebooks with built-in SIM cards used to be relatively common, but they've fallen out of style in recent years. As Chromebooks become more and more functional offline, the need for always-on cellular connectivity seemingly isn't as important as it used to be. According to recent code commits, it looks like Google might be bringing back cellular support in a big way.

A new commit posted to the Chromium Gerrit reveals 'Hermes' - Google's internal project to implement eSIM support on Chrome OS.

SD card support for Android apps, Gboard, low-latency drawing, and more coming to Chrome OS

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

At Google I/O 2018, the big announcement for Chromebooks was Linux app support. Even though it only works on the Pixelbook right now, with support for more models coming soon, it's still very exciting. That isn't the only new feature coming to Chrome OS - several other changes were covered after the keynote or discovered in recent Chromium commits.

SD card support for Android apps

One of the last remaining issues with Android apps on Chrome OS was the lack of SD card support.

HP Chromebook x2 pre-orders are live at Best Buy

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Pre-orders for HP's new detachable, stylus-sporting Chromebook, the x2, are now live at Best Buy's website. The hybrid device, which HP bills as the world's first detachable Chromebook, is scheduled to ship on June 7, just a few days before its official June 10 release date.

The base model of the machine comes equipped with an Intel Core M3 and 4 gigabytes of RAM for $600. While the x2 isn't quite as powerful as Google's own Pixelbook, it's competent enough to handle most Chromebook users' needs (plus it's about $500 cheaper, if you figure in the Pixelbook's stylus).

[Deal Alert] ASUS Chromebook Flip C213SA-YS02 with stylus down to $320 ($79 off)

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Chromebooks are continuing to become a very attractive product, but not everyone wants to drop $1000 or more on a Pixelbook. Asus is one of the better names in this space, especially with the Flip C302. If you're more interested in a smaller form factor, the C213SA-YS02-S has fallen to $319.85, which is a nice $79.15 off MSRP. 

This ruggedized little convertible has an 11.6" HD touchscreen on a 360° hinge, a spillproof keyboard, and an Intel 3350 CPU, which isn't the best chip, as well as Android app support, USB-C, 32GB of flash storage, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, and a stylus.
