    I've owned mine since 2018 IIRC. I bought it with Bitcoin from Newegg. Best headphones I've had, though I've been wanting to try and improve my audio set-up.

    As for a mic, I use a Blue Yeti (from a Radioshack...). Pretty decent, I believe. More than enough for voice chats.

    They're giving it away for quick user acquisition. I've never seen Google not do this with any of their paid services.

    Interestingly, they just released a $15 game called Spitlings. They've also frequently had certain games go on sale for as low as $10. I'm unsure if they just don't have the foresight for that...

    I'm unsure if they just don't have the foresight for that passing point, or if they just don't care.

    I can't find anything on him leaving? Starting a non-profit doesn't necessarily mean he left CNN.

    Libby is great, but unfortunately it looks like my library dropped support for it—or the other way around.

    This isn't true, Chrome OS works perfectly fine offline without Chrome apps. You still have Android apps, PWA's (albeit rare), and now Linux software is supported.

    You can already run Steam—quite easily, but this is about them bringing official support for Chrome OS.

    I expected the price point, but when they're having to list their content in hours, you know it's lacking.

    It's pretty dumb that the game included w/ Stadia Pro doesn't actually take advantage of the 4K/60 it's capable of though.
