Google has opened the floodgates on cheap Chrome devices, announcing three brand-new ways you can use a browser-only PC without breaking the bank —from a tiny stick that plugs into an HDMI port to a laptop that flips over to become a tablet to $149 computers that are cheaper than most smartphones.

With today’s announcements, Google wants to show that no matter what you need a computer for, Google can meet those needs for a much lower price than Microsoft’s Windows partners or Apple’s Macs.

So far, that strategy seems to be working pretty well, which is one reason why Chromebook models have been top selling laptops on Amazon for the last two holiday seasons running.

Here are all the new devices Google unveiled today.

The gas line to destroyed East Village building was illegally tapped

NEW YORK — More than seven months before an explosion and fire leveled three apartment buildings in Manhattan’s East Village, utility workers discovered that the gas line to a restaurant in one of them had been illegally tapped, creating a hazardous situation, according to the company.

On Aug. 6, a meter reader at the restaurant detected the smell of gas and reported it, said Consolidated Edison spokesman Allan Drury.

The Canadian tar sands industry has seen better days. Energy giant Statoil announced last week that it would postpone a major mining project in Alberta for at least three years. It was just the latest in a string of major setbacks for tar sands oil, which has become nearly as bad for corporate profits as it is for the environment.
