Google’s Chrome OS apps are a bit different. They run in your browser instead of natively on your computer. Here are the first ones to download from Google’s Chrome app store.

I was recently introduced to Dr. Lawrence Everett and Joshua Koen, respectively the interim superintendent and IT director at Passaic Public School District in New Jersey. The introduction came by way of CDW, a B2B technology provider assisting organizations like Passaic with comprehensive Chromebook deployments, from training to infrastructure preparation. It afforded me the perfect opportunity to examine the appeal of Chromebook and its impact throughout the various stages of deployment in schools.

I am not quite sure about you, but have you actually taken a Chromebook out for a ride before? And by that, I do not mean a ride in your car or motorbike, but rather, whether you have used it before, doing some work as well as surfing mindless sites for images of kittens in weird poses. You know, nothing heavy duty, as the Chromebook was not meant to be a high powered computing device in the first place. Well, as we all jolly well know, the mid-range tier of products and its intended market tend to be the largest segment in most bell curves, and hence the Google Chromebook would fall under this category nicely. It is nice to know that if you happen to live in places like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands, you should be able to pick up a Google Chromebook.
