So is the HP(s hpq) Chromebook 11 worth the $279? Kevin thinks so: He left his Pixel behind for a cross-country trip. But there are some nice alternatives worth considering as well. Meanwhile, all Chromebooks(s goog) get a boost with updates to both the Beta and Stable channels in the past week. And if you haven’t played Super Mario in HTML5, you haven’t truly played Super Mario!
Note, this week’s show was recorded entirely in the GigaOM San Francisco office where across the street construction is taking place. We apologize for the background noise.
Hosts: Kevin C. Tofel and Chris Albrecht
