MC2 Post 1690 Google's Trojan Horse: How Chrome Apps will finally Take On Windows


"A new class of apps"

The new apps look and behave much like the native apps you find on Windows and OS X. They're built using web technologies, but also with Chrome-specific code that means they won't be able to run on other web browsers — 
they're truly Chrome apps. 

They can exist outside of your browser window as distinct apps, work offline, and sync across devices and operating systems. They can also access your computer's GPU, storage, camera, ports, and Bluetooth connection. Chrome Apps are, for now, only available through Chrome on Windows or Chrome OS on a Chromebook. Mac users will have to wait another six weeks before their version of Chrome will be updated.

I Tested the new Chrome Apps by downloading one of 
my favorite Apps on my Nexus 7 Tablet ---

Google Keep.

(a Note Keeper)

I use it quite a bit on my Nexus 7 tablet.

After downloading from the Chrome Store, the App
populated itself with all my Nexus 7 "notes".

Gee that was so E Z.



For Propeller Hats:

Another Programming Language.


Build structured, encapsulated, client-side web apps with Dart and web components.

A Dart port of Polymer.




Just finished a  Re-Read of  a  Great Chapter from 

Peter Drucker's 1989 book:

The New Realities

Chapter 11

Economics At The Crossroads
