02/23/2014, As you might have heard, Microsoft could soon be slashing the licensing fee of Windows 8.1 in order to make it more appealing to OEMs, and according to reports, to compete against the likes of Google’s Chrome OS and the Chromebooks which the operating system is being installed on. Perhaps it might be a case of too little, too late, as far as Woolworths is concerned, as the company has […]
12/03/2013, We have reliable information that Google is right now developing an update to their Chrome OS camera app which will see the introduction of new features, where among them would include support for video recording, not to mention being able to upload what you have just recorded directly to YouTube or Google Plus. Oh yeah, did we mention, there will also be an option for one to perform a synchronization […]
10/28/2013, Chrome OS looks like it’s starting to make its way across a number of products as HP recently unveiled its Chromebook 11 and companies like LG are expected to launch their own products featuring Google’s operating system. Laptops and desktops aren’t the only products expected to be released with Chrome OS as Chrome tablets may be headed to market sooner than you think. At this time, there’s only one Chomebook that features […]
10/21/2013, Google’s Chromebooks have certainly been receiving some much needed attention in the past couple of weeks as HP revealed its Chromebook 11 as well as a promotion that the company expects to give away hundreds of Chromebooks. It looks like another company may be joining the Chrome OS bandwagon as LG has filed for trademarks that would possibly bring three new devices to market. LG filed trademarks for the ChromeOne, ChromeDesk and […]
10/15/2013, Touchscreen computers are certainly starting to take off as we’ve seen a number of laptops as well as standalone monitors that Windows 8 users can use in order to reach out and touch their apps. Chrome OS users have gone without being able to make full use of their computers which have a touchscreen, but today, Google has released a new stable build of its computer operating system that adds some […]
07/08/2013, Google Chromebook Pixel Review: with high price come high expectations. Will the Pixel deliver? We answer that question in this complete article.
03/25/2013, Just like set top boxes, which are dedicated devices for streaming video content, the Chromebook is a dedicated web browsing appliance. It is an inexpensive piece of hardware, running on a free Operating System, with free software and updates (OS, firmware and drivers), troubleshooting free, anti-virus and anti-malware proof and you cannot “mess it up”, even if you wanted to. Now, assuming, somehow, it was “broken”, it could be restored […]
02/04/2013, Developer François Beaufort posted something very interesting on Google+ earlier today. As you can see in the screenshot above, there appears to be a new feature for rich notifications on Google’s Chrome OS. A closer look will reveal notifications for messages, calls, Google+, and more. It even resembles a little of Google Now’s capabilities. Beaufort also pointed out a new app pinned to the launcher.

Today, Google is happy to announce the arrival of Chrome 20 to the stable channel for Chrome OS. The new version brings a myriad of new features as well as a few stability and security updates. The updates include the already-expected support for Google Drive, offline support for Google Docs, and updates to Pepper […]
05/31/2012, It has been about one year since Google released new Chromebooks, which are laptops running on Google’s Chrome OS, a Linux-based Operating system that revolves around one thing: the Chrome web browser. If you are unfamiliar with the concept, the idea is that every application that you run with Chrome OS is web-based (a website) and runs in the Chrome browser. Google fundamentally believes that this is a great alternative […]
05/29/2012, You may have seen the unboxing of the ChromeBox, a small $329 computer that is powered by the latest Chrome OS web-based “operating system” from Google. Samsung just made it official in the U.S today and has announced a new Chromebook laptop at the same time. Both computers have beefier specifications than their predecessor, and that’s a really good thing because despite of having a reputation for being frugal in […]
04/26/2012, It’s only been a couple of days since Google had officially launched its cloud based storage service, Google Drive. So apart from seeing the integration of Google Docs into the service, what else does Google have planned for their new service? According to Google Drive’s product manager, Scott Johnson, the cloud storage service will also be seeing an integration into Google’s Chrome OS. The storage service will be integrated into […]
04/10/2012, The Google Chrome operating system is said to be getting closer and closer to the Windows platform rather than a browser in due time, having introduced its latest developer version that will also carry the first major redesign of the operation system’s interface ever since it rolled out a couple of years ago. The latest version will feature a full blown desktop as well as windows manager, dropping the browser […]
12/16/2010, Google, one of the biggest web companies, is dreaming about making the computing world to its own image. “The future is on the web”…”in a browser”, Google says. If you talk to Google’s Chrome team, you would sense a genuine belief about how cloud computing should (or will) dominate in the long term. Obviously, there’s also nothing strange in the fact that Google wants to bring the OS (operating system) […]
