Chrome: The Chrome OS version that packs in the Google Play Store has left beta and is now officially on Chromebooks. The new feature allows you to load up any Android app you want on your Chromebook. The Google Play Store is packed inside of the newest stable build of Chrome OS and works on both the Acer Chromebook R11 and the Asus Chromebook Flip. If you don't own a the R11 or Flip, you can expect support in the coming months. The update adds a beta version of the Google Play Store where you can download and run Android apps natively on your Chromebook. As you'd expect, this works better with some apps more than others since they're designed for touch screens, but it's a nice addition overall. Oddly, it looks like the Google Play Store is disabled by default though, so you'll need to pop into your Settings and check the box next to "Enable Google Play Store on your Chromebook" once you download the update.

For instance, you can do it through a VPN, which often requires a monthly subscription fee. Here are some ways to gain access to blocked torrent sites for free.
Dear Lifehacker, I am desperately in need of some relationship advice. I am infatuated with a young lady who works at a fast food outlet I frequent. I am forty-one and have never had any kind of a relationship or even been on a date. I had viral encephalitis at 14 which pretty much destroyed my self esteem, but I've decided to stop procrastinating and get on with my life. I really want to ask her out, but it's an extremely difficult situation because she is behind the counter or around other staff 99% of the time! What do you think I should do?
