[Update: Confirmation] Report: Google gives up on making its own tablets

According to a recently-published report by Computerworld, Google is "officially done" making tablets. This follows in the wake of last year's poorly-received Chrome OS-powered Pixel Slate, and subsequent rumors of downsizing the hardware division responsible. This will not affect the division responsible for the Pixel phones, and Google still apparently has plans for future laptop-style devices.

Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 drops to $399 ($150 off) at Best Buy

It can be hard to find a larger Chromebook with good specifications, but the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 fills that niche. We reviewed the Inspiron Chromebook 14 back when it was released and found it to be a very competent offering for the most part. One of our main qualms, the $599 price tag, has been addressed with this deal; the $399 figure that Best Buy is offering is $200 under the launch price and $150 less than current MSRP.

In 2019, Google G Suite feels incomplete without a proper graphics editor

This might seem like wishful thinking at best, but hear me out: Google should make a photo editor. I'm not talking about the simple crop-and-filter tools built into Google Photos, but a "real" raster graphics editor with layers and more flexibility, not just to enhance the already great camera chops of the company's Pixel phones, but to help with modern productivity. The nature of work has been changing since the productivity side of G Suite — Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive — landed back in 2012, and in 2019 many modern workflows can't be completed without graphics or photo editing.

Chromebook volume buttons will finally match device screen orientation

One annoying quirk with 2-in-1 Chromebooks (and Chrome OS tablets) has been with how volume controls work. The volume up/down buttons always stay in the same position, even if you flip the device around for example, when I used to have my Asus C302 in tablet mode, pressing where the volume up button should be actually turned the sound level down. Thankfully, this papercut is close to going away forever.
