01/14/2010, Google’s Android has certainly gained a lot of ground in a short period of time, which is amazing, and we’ve seen Android popped into almost every device imaginable, including washing machines. Now the question that the folks at Asus are tackling is whether it should be using Android or Chrome OS for devices? Of course, it would depend on what you want from your device; whether you want it to […]
12/28/2009, Word on the street has it that Google’s Chrome OS netbook’s specifications have been leaked out, and most people who have taken a look at it are very, very happy. After all, wouldn’t you also be a happy camper with an NVIDIA Tegra chipset running alongside an ARM processor? The rumor also states that this netbook will come with a 10.1″ multi-touch HD-capable display, a 64GB SSD, 2GB RAM, and […]
12/18/2009, Now here’s something rather cool. Google’s Chromium OS isn’t final yet, but folks are already trying to install it on various devices, and this time it’s the Archos 9 tablet. The OS doesn’t even have a touchscreen keyboard for you to use yet, though you can get around that by plugging in a USB keyboard (and mouse) of course. When Chromium OS is finally released as a finished product, would […]
12/17/2009, Now that most people have accepted the (still unofficial) situation that Google will be offering its own phone in 2010, speculation is growing that the company might also offer its own netbook. After all, we do know that Google has started to dip its feet into the OS market, and is working with the big boys such as Acer, ASUS, Freescale, HP, Lenovo and many others. That’s probably quite similar […]
12/08/2009, Are you looking to expand the feature list of Google’s Chrome? Google’s Chrome Extensions are now live for everybody, which are similar to the plug-ins or add-ons that Firefox uses. Some of the featured extensions include Remember the Milk, Google Reader, Evernote and many more. Find out more information about this at: https://chrome.google.com/extensions
12/08/2009, It feels like it’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. We’re talking about Google Chrome for Mac. While it’s not the final version yet, the beta version is certainly much better than no Mac version at all, right? You can download the Chrome browser right now. Do let us know what you think of the Mac version after you’ve installed it.
12/05/2009, In a recent blog posting, Avast has confirmed that it will be offering users the option to install Google Chrome when they install Avast antivirus on their computers. The company stresses that they’re not trying to force Chrome on users; rather it’s just something that they recommend. Will this make a difference in the current browser wars? What do you think Microsoft and Mozilla’s response to this will be? Publisher’s […]
12/05/2009, An updated version of the Chrome OS was not only released for Dell’s Mini 10V, it will also support Dell’s Mini 9 and Latitude 2100 systems as well. Apart from being more efficient, this update is less bulky at 300MB, taking around 25 minutes to download on average – which is a far cry from the 8GB download users had to contend with during the first release. Anyone tried the […]
12/01/2009, Developer Teo En Ming recently compiled the Chromium source code by rolling out a 64-bit version. This is a wee bit strange though, as the Chrome OS is more or less a bootable Web browser, and will normally require the juice of 64-bit processing. At the very least you won’t need to worry about making sure your machine has 4GB of RAM first.
11/24/2009, I just read an upbeat post about Chrome OS from Bob Morris, the director of Mobile computing at ARM. Here’s an excerpt: It truly levels the playing field for platforms. For the most part today, the OS and HW are closely connected and this drove platforms that slowly innovated. Chrome OS blows this apart, the OS is the browser, which makes the hw irrelevant since applications are written in HTML5 […]
11/19/2009, Google has provided more details about its upcoming Google Chrome OS. If you missed the boat, Chrome OS is a stripped-down Linux that should boot quickly and launch a browser (Chrome). From there, everything that you do is web-based. In short, it’s a fancy way of launching a browser, but there’s more… Distribution and hardware: You and I can’t download Chrome and install it, apparently (technically, you can still get […]
11/18/2009, Looks like tomorrow is set to be a big day as Google will most probably preview its Chrome OS at a special event held at its headquarters in Mountain View, California. Apart from providing some technical background information while parading demos of the Chrome OS, attendees will also benefit from a complete overview. Guess the Chrome OS is not quite yet ready for prime time action at the moment – […]
11/13/2009, Google’s Chrome first made an appearance as a speedy Web browser, and while it won’t take on IE like how Firefox has done, Google has further enhanced the brand name by announced a Chrome OS recently. Word has it that the software will launch within a week, and it can be presumed that this build will only work on a bunch of selected devices that Google engineers have managed to […]
10/02/2009, Strange as it may sound, it seems that the Longsoon netbook could very well be the first netbook on the market that will be powered by the long-awaited Google Chrome operating system. While Longsoon 2F processor was originally built to function with Linux-based software, this has opened up an avenue for Google Chrome OS to sneak in since it is built on top of a Linux platform, making it a […]
