Big deals, great gear, & all the Chromebooks we expect in 2021
Play • 1 hr 20 min

This week on The Chrome Cast, we spend a bit of time talking through our latest, favorite deals as well as our picks for 2020 Gear of the Year.  From $200 Lenovo Duet's to big sales on AirPods Pro, there are so many deals going on it is a bit dizzying.  Between those deals and discussing some of our favorite tech from 2020, it makes for a fun first half of the show.

After the break, our discussion shifts to the future as we explore all the Chromebooks we are expecting in 2021, and let me tell you: it's an absolute avalanche.  While we expect a few more devices could debut before the end of 2020, 2021 looks like a more likely target for nearly every Chromebook we're keeping tabs on right now.  With 7 distinct groups/families of Chromebook on the way, increased interest in Chrome OS, and more manufacturers getting in on  Chromebooks than ever before, 2021 is looking like it will be a crazy ride for Chrome OS fans.

ROUND TABLE - What Section 230 Actually Does
Are Facebook and Twitter protected by a shield that stops them from being responsible for any of their content? We bring on Mike Masnick from TechDirt and Shoshana Weissman from the R Street Institute to talk about what Section 230 is, what it isn’t, and whether it needs to be changed.  SHOW NOTES: Shoshana Weissmann, Senior Manager of Digital Media and a policy Fellow at the R Street Institute. https://senatorshoshana.medium.com/who-am-i-ff164b02707e Mike Masnick, founder and CEO of the Copia Institute and editor of the Techdirt blog. https://www.techdirt.com/user/mmasnick Our discussion isn't a substitute for, nor does it constitute, legal advice. The goal of this discussion is to explore some of the legal issues surrounding CDA 230. The central text of Section 230 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/47/230 (1) Treatment of publisher or speaker No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider. There is also a section right after that on Civil Liability that offers further protections for taking certain moderation actions.  -- What is Section 230 designed to do? -- What are some of the major misconceptions about Section 230? -- If section 230 were repealed with no replacement, what do you think the effect would be? -- Do you believe Congress should replace 230? If so, with what? If not, why? Mike: -Fix a typo -Reverse FOSTA -Remove intellectual exemption property   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
