I know it's been quite a long time since I posted so I just wanted to check in and apologize for not posting in what seems like forever.
There is not a lot of news on the Chrome OS front except for one major thing... AMD Ryzen Chromebooks are on the way!
I personally prefer AMD processors to Intel processors and AMD's Ryzen processors are the cream of the crop. My Windows laptop (that I hardly use anymore because of how much I prefer using Chrome OS) has an AMD Ryzen 5 processor in it for example. Lenovo and HP have already announced Chromebooks with AMD Ryzen processors on the way and AMD has said that Acer and Asus will also be announcing such devices in the near future. According to benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen processors outperform Intel Core processors, so this is very exciting for us real estate professionals who want better performance in the devices we use to conduct our business.
I feel very excited with these developments regarding AMD... Unfortunately I can't say the same about Zillow.
Zillow, one of the websites used the most for real estate, is now trying to compete with real estate professionals and that just is not cool. While Zillow is not always accurate, it is what people use because of how well they have positioned themselves on the market. Now they are trying to shut real estate professionals (who pay for their lead services) out of the process by trying to become the entire process themselves.
So as far as Zillow is concerned... it's nothing more than a FSBO search for me at this point. There are many other services that work on Chrome OS that will be much more helpful for real estate as a profession than Zillow is. It's not what I normally talk about on here, but I felt it was important so I included it in this post.
It's still crazy with COVID out there, so I hope you all are doing well. I will now work on posting on here more often as Chrome OS news tends to heighten going into the holiday season.
So, until next time,
