Overshadowed by the epic game and refereeing controversy as March Madness came to a close with Duke’s victory over Wisconsin on Monday night, was perhaps the most beautiful image of the entire tournament

As seen, above, it shows Duke guard Quinn Cook in tears as he embraces coach Mike Krzyzewski while “One Shining Moment” plays on the stadium video board after their national championship win

You would think that the biggest Chromebook out is Google’s own Chromebook Pixel 2, what with the high-end components and Beverly Hills price. Oh how wrong you would be.

Acer’s Chromebook 15, which starts at $250, is a mammoth. It makes today’s thin, sleek laptops look anorexic. If we did a side by side comparison of it and Apple’s new MacBook, you’d ask where the MacBook is

Yet here we are, a giant Chromebook built without…
