DeskDock shares your computer's mouse and keyboard with your Android device

What is this witchcraft? DeskDock, now available on the Play Store, allows you to share your computer's keyboard and mouse with your Android device. If you've ever used Synergy, it's very close to that.

What's the point of something like this, you may ask? The primary use the developer provided was to make Android development much easier.

But there are plenty of other potential uses as well - you could use your Android tablet as another monitor to watch media on, for example.

[Weird Issue] Chrome Beta and Dev don't show up under My Apps on the Play Store in Nougat, will need to be updated manually

If you own a Nexus device and have updated to Android Nougat, and you use Chrome Beta or Chrome Dev, you may have noticed something. Alright, maybe you didn't notice it because you don't have the eagle eye of Artem. Regardless, the issue is there and it's not a matter of #ArtemsLuck: I was able to replicate it on my Nexus 5X too.

Both Chrome Beta and Chrome Dev do not appear under My Apps in the Play Store on devices running Nougat. Even when they're installed on your device, you won't see them in the Installed list, which means that they won't detect updates and download and install them automatically when all of your apps do.
