Finally, the Chromebook Pixel has reached more of its potential. Actually, all Chromebooks have, now that you can create Chrome Apps in a new tool available from Google(s goog). The Chrome Dev Editor is in a preview mode but that doesn’t mean it’s not a capable piece of software. On this week’s podcast, we discuss why this tool is important and what it means in Google’s overall Chrome strategy. We also highlight a few new Chromebooks and revisit one firm’s claim that Chromecast usage is down. According to Google, who has the actual data, it’s up.
