ChromeOS will soon allow you to run Android apps in the background .. and you can try it today
“The ability to run Android apps in the background seems something so basic, and yet, ChromeOS can’t do it just yet. However, in Chrome OS beta 64, which you can access now, there’s a new feature called Parallel Tasks which allows multiple Android apps to open and also active at once.”

WordPress microblog posting from Do Note | Manton Reece
Since injuring my back earlier this year I’ve found it a pain in the ass to drive for more than a couple of hours at a time…which sucks, because I used to be able to drive for 10 hours without a hassle.

I’ve been speaking with a couple of friends about Bitcoin lately, what is it, how do you get it, etc. And one friend expressed concern that he didn’t “get” Bitcoin.

Going to try something new on the blog for the next month or so.
