The case of the pre-ordered Asus Chromebox takes a plot twist as nobody seems to be getting their device. We discuss the issue on this week’s podcast, and talk about how Google Now is unifying Android devices with Chrome while the Chromecast goes international.

The Chrome Show 2014

Although many folks pre-ordered the Asus Chromebox, the anticipated delivery date has come and gone, so what gives? While we wait to find out we can also wait for new wearable devices thanks to Android Wear, which feature Google Now to unify Android, Chrome and Chrome OS. And if you thought Google’s Chromecast wasn’t in your country, don’t move to the U.S. just yet: Chromecast is now available in 11 new countries!

  1. Great show guys. FYI, Tiger Direct did shipped my Asus Chromebox this week and I should have it today. Not sure what’s up with Amazon, as they are usually good with any preorders.

    1. Wow, I’d say you’re lucky! I went to Tiger Direct before the show and the product page still showed a pre-order state. Just checked again and still says “available for pre-order”. Hmm…. maybe limited supply?

  2. good show :)

  3. Yesterday, I got 4 delivered from Tigerdirect.
