  • iTunes is not supported on Chromebooks. Clearly Google would much prefer you to use their cloud music service, Play, when using one. I am not an Apple expert - I use Windows, Ubuntu or Chrome 99% of the time - but the only work around I know is to move your iTunes collection to Play.

  • One of the responses Russia has threatened in retaliation for sanctions imposed by the US over the annexation of Crimea is that they will shut down Russian GPS stations to disrupt navigation.

  • The vast majority of software designed for 32-bit Windows will run fine on 64-bit Windows. Some older Windows software came with a 16-bit installer and there you could have some issues, but you are pretty unlikely to run into that. If you do run into an issue running 32-bit software, you could virtualize 32-bit Windows.

  • I would put the ability to import password lists from other password managers near the top of the list, so if you change managers you do not have to manually enter in all of the information again. I would also look for multi-factor authentication as well - you REALLY want a password manager to stay secure.

  • I use Google Drive for a number of things, although most often I make use of the word processor. It’s free, it works reasonably well (although I do still prefer Word), and all of my documents are saved to the cloud. However, I’m not always sitting at my desk, and I am often out of the office and away from WiFi.

  • In my bank statement this month, there was an insert about depositing checks to my account using either an Android phone or iPhone. It looks pretty much all you do is take a photograph of the check, confirm that the amount is correct, and Bob’s your uncle. I’m a little skittish about this though; is it really secure?
