4. Install Kodi easy select app install
5. Install chrome.....hmmmm install chrome (nope Anyone?)
6. Of course that means I will need a bluetooth mouse and keyboard.....
7. lets try google search speech Ok it understands me and enters it into the search frame Search is in apps for "chrome"
    Hmm after it enters it it wont perform the search and times out  (anyone?)
