On this week’s podcast, we spend a bit more time talking about the Chromebook Pixel as Chris has traded up from an old Samsung to the newest Chromebook. And the experience starts out with a Chrome experiment that you can try on any computer and phone that have the Chrome browser installed.

We also share some Pixel tips — including how to control the lightbar through a command line — and, of course, provide our extension of the week. A quick recap of what features are in the latest Chrome OS Beta software update round out this week’s audio episode.
