Chromebooks – hate them or love them, they do seem destined to stay. In fact, we ourselves have had taken a close look at several Chromebooks in greater detail in the past, having reviewed the Chromebook Pixel, the Samsung Chromebook Series 3, and the Samsung Chromebook Series 5. Having said that, Chromebooks might not end up in the same vein of best sellers such as the iPad, but it does seem to be a niche market that is picking up steam. Google has decided to make several optimizations to Chrome OS in order to keep up with the times, and that would include making touch actions a whole lot more simple and intuitive.
To take advantage of touchscreen Chromebooks, where does one start? Well, the folks over at Acer has recently announced that there is a new Acer C720P Chromebook that will feature a multi-touch screen, where this would be the second touch-enabled Chromebook from the computer manufacturer. The asking price for this new device will definitely not burn any hole in your pocket, as it retails for a mere $299 a pop. If you are interested in picking up the Acer C720P, why not place a pre-order over on Amazon? [Press Release]
Despite being what many would deem to be the most powerful man in the world, President Barack Obama is still bound by certain rules and regulations. For instance, as much as he would like to use an iPhone as his regular communications device, he is unable to do so because of “security reasons”. In fact, when President Barack Obama jumped on board as the President of the U.S., you could more or less say that he and the BlackBerry were virtually inseparable. When he attempted to work out a deal for a “cooler” handset to use in the Oval Office, he ended up with a BlackBerry 8830 World Edition that carried a special app within known as SecureVoice, which ironically delivered top secret information from the NSA.
His two daughters, however, are iPhone users, and he did share that he has an iPad 2 but does not own an iPhone. That iPad 2 is extra special, since it was given to him by the late Steve Jobs over a Silicon Valley dinner a couple of years ago. So far, President Obama claims that only 10 people have his personal email address, which is interesting to note since it would be easy to keep track of incoming mail each day.
