Summary:

Although the full HD Samsung Chromebook 2 was delayed until later this month, the first hands-on thoughts of the device are appearing on Computerworld. We discuss that and other Chrome news you can use on this week’s podcast.

The Chrome Show 2014

Google took another step in making Chrome a desktop replacement this past week by integrating native files in the OS X Finder with Chrome apps. Windows support is in the works and for now, you’ll need Chrome Canary to open local files in the Finder with a Chrome app. After spending a full week with the Dell Chromebook 11, we have more detailed thoughts to share; there’s a lot to like! And the first hands-on impressions of the Samsung Chromebook 2 with 1080p display are hitting the web.

  2. Keven, before publishing new episodes to iTunes, could you be sure to add a track number to the id3 tags? When the Google Music file manager uploads new episodes tracks get displayed in alphabetical order if a track number is not set.

    2. Great suggestion, Vincent. I may have to go back and figure out all of our track numbers though; we really haven’t noted which is which! That’s not a huge task though so let me see what I can do. Thanks!
