Adobe Optimizes Suite of Android Apps for Chromebooks

Shortly after Google announced that Android apps and the Google Play Store would make their way to Chromebooks, I talked about the importance of this move, even calling it the end for tablets.

Tip: When Setting Up a New Android TV, Use the Android TV Remote for Quicker Logins

Thankfully, Google has a free option available to help you get through these steps in a much more efficient manner. By using the Android TV Remote Control app, you can pop-up an input box from your phone to type out logins, passwords, etc. on your Android TV without having to use the remote that came with your box.
