WordPress is an amazing platform for people who want to get into the website game. Many of the biggest blogs and websites in the world now use WordPress as a way to manage their site, as it is very easy to operate and has almost limitless possibilities in terms of design.

Google has released another trailer to advertise their Chromebooks, however this one is a little different to usual. The last few Chromebook ads have been a series of video clips played quickly within a short time period, with a laid over the top describing the different scenarios they can be used in.
