Blogging on a Chromebook

While there are a lot of options for your primary computer ranging from tablets, desktops and laptops – a Chromebook is a perfect blend for bloggers. So if you haven’t heard of a Chromebook before, it’s a laptop that runs Google’s Chrome OS. We’ll get into why Chrome OS is great, but let’s start with the physical device itself. While not universal, there are a lot of Chromebooks with a touchscreen, so you get the ease of touch navigation and a familiar tablet interface. On top of that, Chromebooks are generally extremely light and portable so you can slip one into your bag and basically blog from anywhere. And probably one of the most compelling reasons to get a Chromebook is the price. Without much hassle or waiting, you can get a Chromebook for under $200. Compared to high-end Windows or Mac machines that can cost over $1000, a Chromebook is an extremely affordable option.

Now for Chrome OS, it’s a custom operating system built by Google that focuses the experience around the browser which happens to be Chrome. Google provides a suite of browser-based office applications like Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides and others. These applications provide the basic functionality everyone expects from a laptop and basically more than most people need. On top of that, you have access to a number of apps that can run inside of Chrome ranging from music players, image editing software and even games. And you can also install Android apps from the Google Play store. So, you get a cheaper alternative to high-end laptops, similar office functionality to a laptop, a touchscreen like a tablet, a full keyboard that will make typing easier than a tablet, a portable light-weight device you can carry with you and a simple intuitive browser interface.

Next time, we’ll start comparing Chromebooks from top manufacturers like Samsung, HP, Acer, Lenovo, Dell and Google.

SRS Riders: Jariels Peak and Pinlac Falls Shortride in Infanta Quezon

SRS Foxtrot FB Group: Jariels Peak and Pinlac Falls Shortride in Infanta Quezon

Jariel's Peak in Infanta, let me start with the word "Worth It Ride". Quezon is a famous end of the week spot for bike riders situated in Manila. It has everything that makes a for an extraordinary half-day trip – enough separation to make the ride feel "short ride" twisty mountain streets, and cool atmosphere and view that vehicles you outwardly to Baguio or Sagada. Truth be told, the place is situated in a sitio called Little Baguio. Additionally, it's off the matrix, in the event that you like that sort of thing. Take Note! No power or telephone motion here. You'll need to hold up to post on Instagram or Facebook once you return home

In case you're as of now comfortable with the Marilaque course, arriving is entirely clear. From Pranjetto Hills, you make a beeline for the convergence, where you can either swing appropriate to Daranak Falls or straight towards Pinlac Falls.

Simply go straight and from that point, it's one more hour or so on Marifanta (Marikina-Infanta) parkway. There aren't a ton of foundations en route. Simply the intermittent sari-sari store, homesteads, and ponies munching on grass along the mountain streets.

The ride was ridiculously chilly. It's been chillier than normal the previous couple of days in Manila, however the temperature truly drops up in the Sierra Madre mountains. Climate can be flighty as well. I knew from past rides that it very well may be madly hot in Quezon City, yet solidifying cool or stormy up in the mountains, so it's best to be set up for anything.

After around 3 hours of driving (counting a few photograph operation stops en route), we at long last achieved a structure with beautiful banners, and a few vehicles and bikes stopped in front.

The words "Jariel's Peak" were composed in what resembled white stones before the hovel, giving a decent photograph operation.

After few more minutes which is said to be 20mins more comes the Pinlac Falls at Brgy. Magsaysay Infanta Quezon. Most of the trip is a scenic view of Sierra Madre.

Generally, riding to Jariel's Peak and Pinlac Falls was a fascinating method to spend a Sunday morning. Taking a gander at Googlemaps when I returned home, I discovered that it was 170+ km add up to going there and back. The full tank (P150+) kept going the excursion going there, yet I refueled in a corner store in Sampaloc in transit back as a sanity check. I'd get a kick out of the chance to go the distance to the port of Infanta and the beach front street of Real, Quezon next ride.
