After receiving numerous questions on our weekly call-in podcast about GoogleChromebooks and the Chrome OS, it became clear that listeners were interested in all things Chrome. So in the words of Silicon Valley: we’re pivoting!

Welcome to the inaugural GigaOM Chrome podcast, where we’ll discuss all things Chrome on a weekly basis. That means topics such as the Chrome browser, Chrome OS, Chromebooks, and Chromeboxes are all on the table. And we’ll do that in a short 20 minutes or so, making the audio podcast digestible on your commute, over a meal or just before bed. In another first, our two hosts are actually in a makeshift studio together; normally, they’re on different coasts!

Show notes:
Hosts: Chris Albrecht and Kevin C. Tofel

    Great podcast, can’t wait for more!

  2. On the note of “must have” apps for Chrome there is a recent post on Reddit [1] on just that. Well worth checking out.

    However for entertainment I can specifically point out the new Spotify [2] app. They did an awesome job on the experience for Chrome. If you need SSH support, then use Secure Shell [3] and be done.

    1. Super suggestions: thanks!

  3. I hate the new menu format, and I’m not alone. I uninstalled Chrome, and installed an
    older version, but I could not stop it from updating.

  4. Enjoyed the podcast very much. As a Chromebook owner I will be sure to listen to this great new resource every week..

    One essential app I can recommend is Hotot, a well specified and user friend Twitter client.

    I have to say to all those nay-sayers, I planned my entire wedding using my Chromebook. It blows my mind that people just don’t understand how you can really live on the web.
