I have now bought my third Chromebook, ASUS Chromebook Flip C302. It cost $600. It’s fast. It boots up in a split second. The battery lasts all day. All I have to do is log in with my Google account and I have all my stuff. My Google Photos, Google Drive files, Gmail, and anything I can access from a web browser is all there. My
Chromebook is my “couch computer” – I especially like it for all my entertainment channels. I find shows to watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO etc. and use Chromecast to watch them on the living room TV.
Because the Chromebook can run Android apps as well as browser-based apps, it is perfect for editing photos with Google Photos and Snapseed.
The GeeksOnTour.com website is like a large library. We have archives full of 45 minute YouTube Shows, 5 minute tutorial videos, and 13 years worth of newsletters and articles.
This article is all about how to find what you need.
Let’s say you want to learn more about your smartphone. First of all, Chris has compiled a checklist of the things that are important to know about your phone. She calls it the Smartphone Skills Checklist – it’s a 2 page handout. The first page of the handout explains how the website is organized; what parts of it are free for all, and what parts are for members only. The checklist is
the 2d page. For most every skill she has listed one of our YouTube shows (s) or Tutorial videos (v) or articles (search for it). That will help you learn that skill.
