Introducing Google Keep

Tech Help LA Google KeepGoogle Keep is simply awesome!!!

Capture what’s on your mind

Add notes, lists, links, photos, audio and more to Google Keep.

When and where you need it

Keep something as simple as a grocery list to saving important website links to access anywhere at anytime. Need to finish a to-do? Set a time-based reminder to make sure you never miss a thing.

Share what you keep with others

Next time you go to the store, share your shopping list with your husband, wife, or assistant on Keep and watch as items get checked off in real time. No need for text messages back and forth. Get things done together, faster.

Find what you need, fast

Quickly filter and search for notes by color and other attributes like lists with images, audio notes with reminders or just see shared notes. Find what you’re looking for with ease and quickly, and let Keep do the remembering for you.

Always within reach

Keep works on your phone, tablet and computer. Everything you add to Keep syncs across your devices so your important stuff is always with you. Syncing across your devices requires access to the Internet.

Keep your thoughts in sync with Google Keep.

If you need assistance or training using Google Keep, contact Tech Help LA and schedule a one hour Google Keep training (onsite or remote). You will be amazed at how Google Keep will organize and simplify your digital operations. Tech Help LA recommends Google Keep to any person using Gmail or Google’s business G Suite services. Enjoy!

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).

Contact Tech Help LA for more info on the Chromebit device.

Google Voice – GV Notifier for Windows

If you are using Google Voice, here is a tool that you may like to use on your Windows PC. This tool allows you to have the freedom to text and make calls using your computer rather than having to rely on your mobile device 100% of the time. At Tech Help LA we find it very useful and thought we would share it with others. Help is our middle name.
