Chromebook

Steve Ceecesc
With Android apps from the Google Play Store, flexibility to go anywhere,
and the hardware you need to get things done,
your Chromebook is a new type of computer for everything you love to do.
It's easy to use, has virus protection built-in,
and keeps going with a long-life battery, so you can too.
Discover why one might be good for you.
And, if you don't want another machine,
you can still get most of the benefits with your current computer - any computer!

Gmail Workshop

Steve Snedden
In 2018, Gmail’s 1.4 billion users got their first major upgrade since 2011.

to the exciting option to make sent messages “self-destruct”,
we will run through the key features of the new Gmail upgrade.

Users have been able to try it out for the last month or so.
