What is start.me? – start.me

Want to customize, and I mean really “customize”, your very own browser start page (also called your “home page”). If so, take a look at Start.me… I have been using this service for quite some time and it continues to improve. I currently have my Start.me (home page) setup as a dashboard where I can, at a glance, see my emails, task, calendar, weather, calculator, news, etc… Big, big timesaver! This is all done via widgets that you can install and move around. Highly recommended…

We spend a lot of time on the Internet. We browse the web to discover. Or we search for something specific, like a delicious recipe or a motivational article. start.me’s bookmark manager lets you easily save and organize all of your favorite webpages on a customizable dashboard. Using start.me, you’ll spend less time digging for links and more time browsing them.

Android Authority Reporting New Integrated Service For Android and Chrome OS To Be Unveiled

Perhaps as early as next week, Google will unveil a new service called “Better Together” that will give your Android device and your Chrome OS device the power to work as a team.

Some things you will see come out of this are:

  • SMS Connect, which will let you read and respond to text messages within Chrome OS. This will likely be different and probably more robust than the recently-unveiled Android Messages for the web.
  • Instant Tethering, which will allow you to use your phone as a hotspot and then connect to the internet on your Chromebook instantly. You can currently do this with any laptop, but it will now be “instant” with Better Together.
  • Smart Unlock, which will help you avoid typing your password into your Chromebook over and over again. Instead, if your phone is nearby, your laptop will automatically unlock.
