We’ve got a new co-host who just bought his first Chromebook and is an active Chromecast follower. Say hello to Janko!

Also in this show we tackle a common question on how to print with a Chromebook and talk about the newest features in the Chrome OS Camera app. There’s more news about Chrome apps coming to other platforms too as Google has released the first batch of tools to make that happen.

  1. Sorry to hear Chris has left, but I really enjoyed having Janko as the host and I think he will be great for the show. Welcome Janko!

    In terms of Cloud Print, have you heard about the xPrintServer Cloud Print Edition? It will supposedly let you print to USB and network printers very easily. They have one for iOS devices too, and I know that works great, so the Cloud Print one might be a nice option for Chromebooks in enterprise or schools. Maybe Kevin could test one out and see how it works?

  2. Hey Kevin – just a quick correction, you don’t need to have the Chrome framework on mobile devices to run Cordova-based apps. Cordova uses whatever the native Web control of the mobile device is.
