Lenovo’s latest education-focused Chromebooks are cheap and cheerfully impenetrable

The box says “education,” but they’re for everyone.

Logic would dictate that a trio of Chromebooks, all selling for under $ 350, wouldn’t be particularly interesting. But in 2018, where most of the innovation in Android phones is happening in the mid-range, it stands to reason that a similar trend would be seen in other areas where Google’s software dominates.

Chrome OS has become a prominent part of the education community in recent years, buoyed  [Read More…]

Lenovo’s Smart Display is the Google Assistant-powered Echo Show we’ve been waiting for

It’s time for Google Assistant to branch out, starting with displays in the home.

Google Home and Amazon Echo match up in both the small and medium speaker segments, but the hardware offerings start to diverge from there.
