Acer's new rugged Chromebook 11 C771 series has IPS displays and 6th gen Intel processors

It's school season again and every company is either offering deals on existing products or introducing new ones to entice buyers for their back-to-school/college gear. In that vein, Acer has announced a new series of Chromebook 11s, the sexily-named C771.

First off, these are rugged Chromebooks and they've been tested to withstand drops from 48" height (122cm) thanks to corner shields around the keyboard and display, up to 330ml fluid spills on the keyboard, and they're MIL-STD 810G rated. That should help them stay strong in your bag or your kids' backpack, even when under stacks of books, and handle the rough treatment of a classroom environment.

[Deal Alert] Get 30% more off ZeroLemon's Pixel and Pixel XL battery cases with coupon code

Although ZeroLemon and Amazon would both like you to think that the brand's battery cases cost $100, they almost never sell for that MSRP. In fact, even on release day, the Pixel XL's case was marked down to $59.99 and the regular Pixel's case was at $54.99.

Mediocre's Smash Hit reaches 100 million downloads on the Play Store

It's hard to truly grasp what that "100 million" badge on the Play Store means. Once the figure is condensed into a simple little badge, it loses a lot of its dramatic effect. But take this into account: 100,000,000 is roughly three times Canada's entire population. That's damn impressive.

[Free Alert] Google is giving away free $1 Google Play credits to select accounts yet again

About two weeks ago, Google handed out free $1 Google Play credits to select accounts. The distribution was pretty random; the credits didn't seem to be going to any specific demographic of users. If you didn't get the credit last time (or even if you did), you're now getting another opportunity for a free dollar of it.

Android platform distribution for August 2017: Nougat hits 13.5% with Android O right around the corner

Google has updated the developer dashboards for August, and that means a new glimpse at which versions of Android are floating around out there. Like last month, Android 7.0 and 7.1 saw a small gain, and most other versions saw a small drop. That leaves Nougat on just 13.5% of devices today, and it's entirely possible Android O will arrive before another platform update does.
