Google Chrome…

Posted: February 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

I like most things related to technology.  I like to know what things are rolling out and how to use them.  Even as I get older (yes, today I can admit that I’m not the new young pup–but don’t ask me tomorrow!) I like to stay current with the latest and greatest technology trends.  I don’t need to know how they work or how to program them–but I enjoy things that make me more productive, help me learn new things, and even that are fun.

The other day I was challenged by a fellow administrator (Beth Krutz) as she is using Google Chrome as was touting the things it could do.  I’ve resisted Google Chrome and had even heard some criticism of it.  For some reason this conversation brought out the competitive, not wanting to fall behind side of me and so I made the leap and downloaded Chrome.

Now I’m fascinated by it.  There are productivity and educational apps for Chrome.  They even have a machine marketed in part with the one-to-one initiatives in mind that is inexpensive and does the basic things devices need to do.  While the jury is still out for what I think of Chrome–you might want to check it out to and see what you think.

For those of you interested in knowing more, here are some interesting things I’ve read online now that I’m paying attention to headlines that have Google Chrome in them!
