Chromebit – Tech Help LA

Chromebit – A full Chrome OS-based computer on an HDMI stick.Chromebit - Tech Help LA

The $85 Chromebit is a 75 gram (or 2.6 ounces) stick that you can plug into any HDMI port — whether that’s a regular computer screen or that large TV in your living room. It comes with 16GB of onboard storage (in the form of relatively cheap and slow eMMC storage) and 2GB of RAM.

Google – Chromebit Device

In many ways, it’s a larger, bulkier version of the old Chromecast stick. Just like that device, it comes with a dedicated charger, but unlike the Chromecast, it also features a USB port. The Rockchip-based Chromebit comes in “Cacao Black” and “Tangerine Orange,” but overall, it’s a pretty unassuming device that’s mostly meant to disappear behind your screen anyway (hence why I’m not sure why there is an orange version).

While most people will likely want to use a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard to connect to the Chromebit, the USB port allows you to plug in wired peripherals as well (and with a USB hub, you could even plug in multiple devices).

Because it’s a full Chrome OS machine, you can pretty much run any web app on it. It’ll let you play movies and TV shows from Google Play, Netflix or Hulu, just like any other Chrome OS device, for example.

You could probably use the Chromebit as a somewhat cumbersome media center in your living room if you wanted to, but it’s really at home in a school, enterprise, or maybe call center. As long as the work only involves web apps (or maybe a remote connection to a more fully-featured machine), the Chromebit is up for the job and can turn any screen into a usable desktop.

In the U.S., the Chromebit will be available at Amazon, Fry’s and Newegg (interestingly, Google’s usual Chrome OS partner Best Buy isn’t part of this initial list of vendors).

Do You Have Too Many Passwords?

Passpack gives you the tools to organize your passwords all in one place, the way you want them, with tags. For example, your Amazon.com password can be tagged both “shopping” and “books”. Your Macy’s account can be tagged both “shopping” and “clothes”. If you click on the “shopping” tag inside your Passpack account, you’ll see both your Amazon and your Macy’s entries. If you click “books” you’ll see Amazon only.

Once you’ve filled up your account, you can quickly login to those websites with your Passpack It! browser button. Turn on Passpack’s 1 Click Login, browse the web, then when you’re ready to login somewhere – click your button. Can’t get any easier than that!

A great idea for a weekend project is to change all of your passwords into something unique for each account. Now that you no longer have to remember all your passwords, use Passpack’s password generator to create strong, unguessable passwords and significantly reduce your risk of identity theft.

Password Problems:

  1. You have too many passwords,
    not enough brain!
  2. You need some logins at work,
    some at home and some on the go.
  3. You reuse the same 2-3 passwords everywhere (Yikes!).
  4. You get frustrated and waste time looking for passwords.

The Passpack Fix:

  1. Organized
    Relieve the burden on your memory with a secure, tidy list.
  2. Save Once, Access Everywhere
    From any computer or smart phone, anywhere in the world.
  3. Identity Theft Protection
    Use a different password for every site.
  4. Fast Login
    Login to websites with your personal Passpack It! button.
