Chrome OS: Chromebook users looking for an alternative to Google's set of editing tools can now turn to Microsoft Office, which is finally available on Chromebooks. The suite of office apps - Word, Powerpoint, Excel and Outlook - has been available on macOS, iOS and Android devices, but Chromebooks have been left out of the picture until recently. Depending on your device, however, it could cost you a few bucks for what most would consider essential features.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Dear Lifehacker. I have a few older PC's lying around the house and was wondering, given that they are older PCs, if setting them up with Chrome OS would be a good option to give them a new lease of life? What would you suggest as the best way to set up a Chrome PC for home use?

No one likes to be told what to do, so why should your Chromebook follow the rules? Well, it'll have to abide but whatever physics dictates, but when it comes to running Android apps, there is a way to convince it (and other operating systems) to play ball, if you're willing to do a little legwork. Well, fingerwork.

Yesterday, Acer launched the C720P Chromebook in Australia -- the first model with an inbuilt touchscreen. Like the recent spate of Windows 8 notebooks, its LED boasts 10-point touch functionality for added "fun and immersion". But is there actually any point to this when using Chrome OS? Apparently, that will largely depend on what developers choose to do with it.
