 Chrome Extension Allows Remote IT Support 
   
   
 


Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is the first installment on a capability allowing users to remotely access another computer through the Chrome browser or a Chromebook.



The goal of this beta release is to demonstrate the core Chrome Remoting technology and get feedback from users. This version enables users to share with or get access to another computer by providing a one-time authentication code. Access is given only to the specific person the user identifies for one time only, and the sharing session is fully secured. One potential use of this version is the remote IT helpdesk case. The helpdesk can use the Chrome Remote Desktop BETA to help another user, while conversely a user can receive help by setting up a sharing session without leaving their desk. Additional use cases such as being able to access your own computer remotely are coming soon.

Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is fully cross-platform, so you can connect any two computers that have a Chrome browser, including Windows, Linux, Mac and Chromebooks.







Editors Note: This is going obviate using Teamview for 90% of our clients. By offering the same one off password validation, it's a great secure offering.

If you're a little bit of SciFi person and yet, you also like NPR - I highly recommend this e-book. Dan is probably one of the most under appreciated authors I know. He's an outstanding programmer, a standup Dad and an author with a fanatical following. It's probably the best $6.99 you'll spend on a book in a long time. This will read just fine on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Android and just about every other type of smart device - including your computer.

Flat Eric Doll

Sometimes you find things on Ebay that really get you fired up. A great find. You win the auction. Things are a little wishy when they start requesting more shipping (from the UK to the US) and then what you've been anticipating, arrives. And the gap between reality and bidding seems pretty far apart.

We've been fans of Flat Eric, the doll puppet from the Levis ads from around 2000. We found this puppet in near mint condition on Ebay from a UK seller (The Seller in Question is "chris n jane" and their email is: janewhitehurst@ntlworld.com ). Seems that Flat Eric was big in the UK and there's lots of swag still floating around. So we went for it. The picture above was what was portrayed.... and I quote from the auction:
FLAT ERIC VIVID IMAGINATIONS YOU ARE BIDDING ON A LARGE FLAT ERIC BOXED SOFT TOY HE HAS NEVER BEEN USED OR OUT THE BOX SO I WOULD CLASS IT AS NEW THERE ARE SIGNS OF WEAR ON THE BOX BUT THERE IS NOTHING BAD, AS IT HAS JUST BEEN IN MY CUPBOARD...
Fantastic! So. We finally get our prize in the mail. You'd think, with a mint collectible, that you'd box up the item and ship it. No, not this person. They wrapped some paper, saran wrap and taped the hell out of it and shipped it off via International Post. It's kind of like buying a rare stamp and having the person lick and stick it to the envelope to ship it to you.

Needless to say, it's a FAIL. It's safe to assume that this seller got less than stellar feedback. Next time use a freaking box if you're going to ding someone for extra shipping. And if you're advertising it as "New", take the time to remove the blonde hair that's covering it and air it out a bit. Smelled like it was doused in cheap perfume.

Here's how it arrived:
