The DJI Osmo Mobile helped solve that problem, enabling users to get incredibly smooth video out of their phones' cameras, but it was pretty pricey at $299.

Weekend poll: Do you use a voice assistant like Bixby, Alexa, or Google Assistant?

With CES about to swing into gear, and Google apparently gearing up for a personal assistant blitz at the event, we've been thinking pretty hard about how Google Assistant has integrated itself into our lives.

Ignoring a few small hardware snafus, Google's solution has become an indispensable tool for many of us. But, it isn't the only personal assistant game in town. Samsung's Bixby has a following of its own, and Apple's Siri is built into MacBooks and iOS devices. There's also always Amazon's Alexa elephant in the room.

Acer has just announced its new Chromebook 11 (CB311-8H/T). Although this new Chromebook has USB-C support for power and peripherals, as well as an alleged 10-hour battery, its specs are balanced by a low-resolution display and an uncertain Celeron-badged processor. Starting at $249 and available in touch and non-touch versions, this new model doesn't actually go on sale until later this year—April in the US and March for the rest of the world.
