For those wanting Google Now cards to show up on your Mac or PC (and you are a Chrome user, of course) you can now get Google Now cards via Chrome. There is a catch though. You need Chrome Canary. What is Chrome Canary you ask? Canary is the Alpha build of Chrome. Most of you have heard of Chrome Beta, well this is the Alpha version, and you will have to download it first. This is the "bleeding edge, get all the crap first, hope it works right" version of Chrome. I have been running it for the last 24 hours and it has been stable on Windows 8.1 for me. YMMV. Here is the link to download Canary: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/canary.html Once you download it, go into the address bar and type: chrome://flags/#enable-google-now Now relaunch Canary. You should see a bell icon in your system tray. (IF that didn't work, do the following as well: Go into the address bar and type: chrome://flags Scroll down the page a bit (or hit control button and the f key to find) "Enable Rich Notifications", "Enable experimental UI for Notifications", and "Enable Synced Notifications". They will be one right after the other in the list. Click "Relaunch Now" at the bottom when done.) You will see a little bell icon show up in the system tray (bottom right hand corner on Windows and upper right hand corner in OSX), indicating you now have Google Now notifications. What does this do for you? Info on Pics below: This is the 'Chrome Canary icon' seen in the lower left portion of the first screenshot (same design as the Chrome icon, just yellowish). And the second screenshot shows me a reminder I set on my Nexus 5 and then showing up as a Google Now card on my Desktop.
