GNC #693 Plank Owner



Ok Folks new Studio will be a go. In order to make it happen I am introducing the Plank Owner program tonight.. If we can get 1000 Plank Owners we will hit the goal for the new studio plans.. If we reach half that amount the studio goes to the Garage believe me I do not want to go to the Garage :)

GNC #690 Professional I think Not



Wow huge response to our Roku Contest congrats to Mason Mannie of Fargo ND… We have more ways to win, listen to tonight’s show.. It’s like the Keystone cops for about the first 5 minutes of the show. Watch me juggle about 10 things at once and you will at least have your laugh for the day! Lots of tech today… But best news of all is Shoko is back in Hawaii. Probably the reason I cannot think straight. :)

If Chrome OS is to Succeed Attention to Detail is Neeeded!



Ironically this blog post is written on Firefox on my Computer versus my Chrome browser on my Chromebook because I could not capture or insert images in the wordpress editor.

I know I have my Chromebook about a week early. It is pretty obvious because the boys at Google are not ready for us yet. When I went over to Picasa the site thought I was a Linux machine and asked me to download some Linux RPM file.

Also when you visit the Chrome Web Store and try and install some apps they kinda get confused. I installed a screen capture app made by Google. It will capture the image but it kinda like gets lost when trying to figure out where to save it.

These are the big things Google is going to have to solve and like yesterday. If I install an App from the Chrome Web Store it better work on the Chrome OS aka Chromebook if it doesn’t it just is gonna piss people off.

So here is my advice to Google, flag the apps that will work well with the Chromebooks and hide the rest. I surely do not want to have to figure it out myself..

If these little things can be fixed, then the developers can also see what is missing and start designing apps for the Chromebook and the Chrome OS


Samsung Chromebook Series 5 Unboxing Video



I received the Samsung Chromebook today and thought I would do a quick unboxing. Had a little screen glare during parts of it but we will get it hooked up to the tricaster for future screen demos.

So far so good but I have discovered one major issue, it fails to connect to my main wireless router in the house on my high speed connection. It will connect to my secondary connections no problem but I have no idea why it refuses to connect to my main connection.

The data plans are not as generous as the iPad, Verizon is offering 1gb for $9.99 per month. There is no 2gb plan at all. I picked the 1gb plan to see how far it will really take me.

Bootup after setup is 3-4 seconds tops.

I look forward in seeing how far we can go with the Chrome OS on “The Chrome Show” launching here in a few days!

GNC #670 Chrome OS Arrives



I am sure you have noticed the new strategy with the show content and I hope you like the tighter format. The goal is more insight on the important stuff while at the same time getting you a nice sampling of what you may have missed. This may mean longer rants on some sections of the show and barely a gloss over on other segments. All of this is part of the process I am using to take the show to the next level. Your feedback is welcome. Enjoy todays show! Next show will be road show.. Listen for details.
