Acer has a long history with Chrome OS devices that it continues to propel forward with devices like the Chromebook Tab 10. Chromebooks have found a comfortable home in schools and kids’ rooms, but many are convinced that Chrome OS can be a viable platform for professionals as it continues to evolve. Acer unveiled a Chromebook for such professionals, the Chromebook Spin 13, that looks and feels like it could hold its own next to some high-end ultrabooks.
Both design and internals set the Chromebook Spin 13 apart from other Chrome OS devices, even those already made by Acer. The new 2-in-1 has an all-metal chassis with diamond-cut edges, giving it more substantial feel when you lift it compared to the plastic Chromebooks we’re all used to. The polished hinges on the Spin 13 smoothly facilitate the transition between laptop, tent, presentation, and tablet modes, and the device feels sturdy no matter how it’s positioned.

This time, however, there could be some staying power in Netflix’s lead. Facing an impending threat from Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Netflix has more than doubled down on its production spending, and…

Uber is shutting down its self-driving car program in Arizona. The move comes in the wake of a fatality that occurred in March, when an Uber vehicle in autonomous mode struck and killed a woman crossing a street. AZ Central first reported that about 200 employees at the Uber self-driving car program in Tempe, Arizona, were fired Wednesday morning. The full shutdown is expected to take a few weeks.
