It's been months since I've written anything on here so I just wanted to check back in. The world of Chrome OS is in a waiting pattern while new technology is slowly churning out onto the market although there are a couple small, but key, developments I want to briefly touch on.
First, awhile ago I wrote about Progressive Web Applications on here. Well, at Google I/O (Google's big developer summit for those who don't know) which is happening in a little over a week, they are doing a whole thing about making Progressive Web Applications more native to Chrome OS. This can be a boon for realtors and landlords alike. Imaging having the ability for someone to click on your icon on their home screen to inquire about a property or to pay rent or to put in for a maintenance repair, or anything of that sort without having to open a browser. That is what we are talking about here. This could be a major breakthrough in the real estate space if people utilize it properly. I'm very interested to see where they are going with this and you can bet that I will be following these developments.
Second, there is more hardware coming out and more hardware options for Chrome OS then ever before. No matter what budget you're operating with or what specs you are looking for, there is a Chrome OS device either out there for you or well on its way. If you want to keep tabs on Chrome OS hardware developments, Chrome Unboxed and About Chromebooks are two great places to go!
Third, while I'm not sure how many local boards use Authentisign (mine does), there is a new Authentisign out that does indeed work on Chrome OS. This will make contracts easier, especially for those who use tablets (or their smartphones). I'm excited to go on that webinar and learn all about it!
Well, that's all I had to get to today. With new hardware and software developments happening, I should be back on here sooner rather than later.
Until next time,
