Sometimes the integrated inputs on your Chromebook just simply aren’t good enough (looking at you, Chromebook 11 trackpad). But the OS is still new enough that not many major manufacturers directly support it. Sure, Chrome OS is supposed to be plug-and-play compatible with any USB HID peripheral, but this nest of un-pairable wireless mice on my desk suggest otherwise.
Andy Rubin left Android, and Chrome and Apps boss Sundar Pichai is taking over. Desktop melts into mobile. It’s a familiar dance, following iOS and OS X and the whole Windows 8 philosophy down the same convergence rabbit hole. But this one is a little different.
