Offline Behemoth - Practical Chrome

We find out why Chrome OS is an ‘Offline Behemoth’, and why the Chrome Store is filling with more of the same.  Do you have this common ‘offline’ vs. ‘online’ argument?  Then stick around.

Then in the news we wax nostalgic with LEGOs, find out there is a bounty, say ‘Ok Google’ Now, and then login.  The login is a surprise even for me!  We are going trolling for apps in our own drawers!

Note: Due to technical issues that are two silent gaps in the video. I did fill those gaps in the MP3 for our podcast listeners. I apologize for this in advance.
