Chrome OS is Getting Fragmented (and This Time It’s Google’s Fault)

Cameron Summerson Android “fragmentation” has long been a talking point about the OS. As I’ve said before, however, manufacturers are to blame for that. But now I fear that Chrome OS is going down the same path—and this time it’s Google’s fault. How Chrome OS Updates Differ from Android I’m going to make some connections between Android and Chrome OS early on here because it only makes sense as a starting point. The biggest difference between the two is that Android is open and available...

Chromebook updates.

Chromebook updates: 1. Chromebook now accepts a direct USB connection to a legacy printer. You don't have to use a network or wireless printer. Unfortunately I have one of the older Acer Chromebooks that is "no longer supported" and I haven't been able to do this simple USB direct connection. I can still use a wireless or network printer though. (I will keep trying though for the direct connection.) 2. One of my sons just bought a new Lenovo Chromebook from Best Buy. It is one of the 2 in ...

How Dutch educators use Chromebooks to transform classrooms

When I first moved to Amsterdam in 2014, there were a small number of passionate educators using Google tools to shape digital teaching and learning. Schools like Corlaer College, a secondary school in Nijkerk, were already working with Chromebooks at the time. Over the next few years, organizations like Corlaer invited others to learn from what they were doing. I saw educators sharing their stories and experiences with one another through communities like Google Educator Groups.Across these sch...

Here’s When a Dark Theme Can Save Battery Power

Dark themes are becoming more and more popular. On some devices, they can even save battery power. It all depends on what type of display your device have—only devices with OLED displays can reap the power-saving benefits.

OLED screens differ from LCD and LED displays typically found in electronics in that OLEDs don’t have a backlight layer: each...
