Editor’s Note: Every Saturday Morning we take a departure from our normal tech coverage for a little internet video fun. We take a look at extreme sports, hot movie trailers, stop-motion animation, and pretty much whatever cool video we happen to come across on the internet.
Top Gear loves its exotic cars, and Ferrari and Lamborghini are staples of the show. This time around, Jeremy takes a look at the F12. The 599 replacement has more power, better design and seems to be downright scary to drive. You can check out the video below to find out what this means.

Chromebooks have been climbing up in the market, after what was a bit of a slow start. The operating system isn’t about to topple Windows right now, but it is becoming increasingly more useful for many customers who simply don’t need all of the bells and whistles offered by Microsoft.
Microsoft has a history of supporting an OS for a long period of time, though devices, like Surface are receiving less of a life expectancy. Google also posts this information, though it’s more about the hardware, as opposed to the OS.
“Chrome devices receive automatic updates regularly that improve and enhance the device and software on the device. However, advances in hardware and technology eventually make devices out-of-date, and as time goes by, we can no longer provide updates to leverage new OS features. This document provides advanced notice of the End of Life date for specific Google approved Chrome devices, and is currently applicable only to Chrome OS for Enterprise and Education customers”.
|Manufacturer||Product||End of Life date|
|Dell||Chromebook 11||January 2018|
|Chromebook Pixel||April 2017|
|HP||Chromebook 11||October 2017|
|HP||Chromebook 14||November 2017|
|HP||Chromebook Pavilion||February 2017|
|Samsung||Series 3 Chromebook (XE303C12)||October 2016|
|Samsung||Series 3 Chromebox (XE300M22)||March 2017|

You can easily sync Chrome bookmarks, as well as other data, but if you wish to save the file in another easy import form, just in case, there is always HTML. And a second backup may be a good idea.
In that case, you are going to want to export the bookmark file to HTML — something that is also handy for those using sync, just in case something goes wrong one day. Here are some simple steps to do it.
Start off by heading to the tools menu at the top right (it’s the three bars icon), then moved down to “Bookmarks” and choose “Bookmark Manager”.
Tap the “Organize” button to produce a drop-down menu. At the bottom you will find options for both importing and exporting the file via HTML.
Chrome will allow you to choose any location on your network to store the file. It may be recommended that you choose an external drive for backup, just in case it’s needed. Just remember the location, in case you someday need to restore it. Restoration is a simple matter of following the same process and choosing “Import”.
