This week starts with a rant about how “interesting” it was to try to set up the Apple Watch to unlock a Mac, otherwise known as an adventure in changing two-step verification into two-factor authentication. Then we take a break and listen to George from Tulsa tell us about how ChromeOS now supports Android apps and gives his thoughts on how well this works. We get back into two-factor authentication when I explain the impact this had on my Apple TVs. The good news is it all works out in the end. Bart Busschots joins us with another installment of Security Bits.
Guest Post by George from Tulsa
In November, 2015 I reported about my new Asus Chromebook Flip and 2015 Toshiba Chromebook 2 with Intel i3. Text of that review is in Nosillacast 551.
Nearly a year later, I’m very pleased with both.
The 2015 i3 Toshiba Chromebook remains on Amazon for $476 even though Toshiba is reported to be withdrawing from the “general”computer market (anandtech.com/…). The 4GB Flip’s current Amazon price is $269 $335.
All that’s old news.
