MobileViews Podcast 199: Samsung Chromebook Plus discussion w/guest Paul Lawler

Samsung Chromebook Plus
Guest panelist Paul Lawler and I discuss the recently released Samsung Chromebook Plus that each of us purchased and received a few weeks ago. The Chromebook Plus is the first Chromebook that ships with support for the Google Android app store out-of-the-box (vs. turning on a beta-release of Chrome OS). Paul and I have had very different experiences with this Chromebook. Check out the podcast to learn how different.

Available via Google Music Podcasts and Apple iTunes.

  6. What’s going on with Microsoft Whiteboard Seems like it was released and then removed. Jon wants a simple whiteboard app that lets him draw on his tablet, and is viewable on the secondary monitor (e.g., projector). Think Powerpoint Presenter View where Primary see’s all the tools, etc… and the secondary screen just shows the output. Does such a thing exist?
