Chrome OS: Tips, tools, and other Chromebook intelligence
Google's Chrome OS platform sure has come a long way.

From the early days, when Chrome OS was little more than an experimental "browser in a box," to today — with the platform powering first-class hardware and supporting a diverse range of productivity applications — Google's once-crazy-seeming project has turned into one of the world's most intriguing and rapidly expanding technological forces.

I've been covering Chrome OS closely since the start. I lived with the first Chromebook prototype, the Cr-48, and have used Chromebooks as part of my own personal computing setup in varying capacities ever since. I write about the field not only as someone who's studied it professionally from day 1 but also as someone who has used it personally that entire time, up through today.

French police hunt gunman after Christmas market attack
Hundreds of French anti-terror police are hunting for a fugitive gunman who attacked Christmas shoppers at a market in the eastern city of Strasbourg while shouting "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest), officials said Wednesday. The attack in the heart of the medieval city as the annual Christmas market was closing on Tuesday night left two dead, 13 injured and crowds of traumatised witnesses. The suspect, a 29-year-old Strasbourg native identified as Cherif Chekatt, opened fire with a handgun and stabbed passers-by during his rampage, France's anti-terror prosecutor Remy Heitz said Wednesday.

Trump 'storms out and throws briefing papers across floor' after extraordinary televised row with Pelosi and Schumer
A frustrated Donald Trump reportedly threw briefing papers across the White House floor following his chaotic televised meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Ms Pelosi and Mr Schumer were widely considered to have bested Mr Trump after the 72-year-old was goaded into admitting he would be "proud" to partially shut down the government if congress refuses to approve $5bn in border wall funding. Following the dispute, Mr Trump "stormed out" of the Oval Office, and, holding a folder of briefing papers, "scattered them out of frustration - threw them across the room", according to the LA Times' White House reporter Eli Stokols.

Apple's App Store privacy efforts are backfiring big time
There have been some complaints recently about how the Apple App Store handles privacy. Although Apple is trying to position itself as the consumer-privacy-friendly company — in stark contrast to Google, primarily — some have complained that it is doing it in far too heavy-handed a way.

But what struck me as most interesting about the situation is how many companies have been hurt when, for example, an app that a company needs suddenly goes missing from the App Store, with no indication of when it will return or, well, just about any information at all.

Do these companies abandon the app and standardize or some other app? That can take quite some time and be disruptive and costly. It's also infuriating if the original app suddenly returns the day before the new, more expensive app is supposed to roll out. Apple's corporate attitude of "We'll tell you nothing until we feel like it" is a real problem if Apple expects companies to rely on its business apps.
