Best Buy has deals on tons of Chromebooks, including the HP Chromebook X2 for $399 ($200 off)

If you've been considering one, Best Buy has deals on a number of hot ticket units, including the HP Chromebook X2, Lenovo Yoga C630, and even refurbished Pixelbooks.

What We Use, 2018 Edition: The stuff Rita can't live without

It's been four years since I shared with you all the gadgets and quirky things that I own and love in my previous What We Use post. In the time since, a lot has changed in my personal life. I met the most awesome, weird, and pun-loving man. We got married, moved into an apartment of our own, and started traveling a little more frequently.

But a lot is still the same. I still pull double work duties: I own and manage my pharmacy, and I work here at Android Police, obviously. In between selling drugs and counseling patients, I sit back at my desk, clean up hundreds of emails a day, write a few posts, virtually shout at the entire team if they miss an Oxford comma, and come up with silly or inappropriate jokes.

Now it seems Google is updating the Android subsystem straight to 9.0 Pie, skipping Oreo entirely.

There have been persistent rumors about an updated Pixelbook with smaller bezels, but there's convincing evidence to suggest we will also see a tablet with a detachable keyboard (please call it Pixelet). We might now have our first look at the new models, codenamed 'Nocturne' and 'Atlas.'
