The many reasons why Chrome OS is appealing

How could the Chromebook(s goog), a device built around “just a browser”, be desirable when laptops, tablets and phones all have a browser and more? There are a number of answers to that question and no single reason is compelling. The more accurate answer may be a combination of reasons: zero-maintenance, low cost, high value and more.

Chrome OS fan, and GigaOM Chrome Show follower, Craig Tumblison, explains those reasons in an article that we call attention to on this week’s podcast. We also discuss the new Google+ photo edit support for ARM-based(s amrh) Chromebooks and offer some new Chrome OS tips and tricks. You can download the show here or tune in directly below.
