Remote Desktops

July 25th, 2016

I have quite a few devices now: one computer (PC) at Stanford, one (PC) at home, one Macbook Pro laptop, one iPhone and iPad. I am sometimes at work, sometime home, sometimes travelling, sometimes meeting people. One thing I always want to achieve is to be able to access the computers from anywhere.

I did some research and Google’s Chrome Remote Desktop is a good choice. It is also free. It is a plugin of Chrome browser. For iphone/iPad, Google also offers an app. I installed Chrome Remote Desktop on all my devices, and now I can access any computer from any other devices.

This is what I hoped for - a full connection. But at this particular moment I can’t use the home computer to remote others. I got the famous “some required components are missing” error and don’t know how to solve it. If you know a solution, please let me know.

Try Stork, a research tool we developed

Stork is a publication alert app developed by us at Stanford. As a researcher we often forget to follow up important publications - and it's practically impossible to search many keywords or researchers' names everyday. Stork can help us to search everyday and notifies us when there are new publications/grants. How Stork helped me?
