Yesterday I wrote a scathing rebuke of attempts to sensationalize Hexxeh’s supposed leak of an Apple Ipad running Chrome OS (more accurately; Chromium OS). Today Hexxeh released a very short and cryptic video (of-course) showing this ‘miracle’ and indeed the mainstream media picked it up once again.
Today Hexxeh tweeted a picture which seemed to display Apple’s Ipad running Chromium OS. More opportunistic bloggers (Kat Hannaford from Gizmodo) quickly turned the tweet into an over sensationalized story about how Hexxeh had possibly ported Chromium OS onto Apple’s star product.

The Operating system which Google announced last year has ever since been ducking and diving the media spotlight.

It seems like Twitter has made the leap; transforming it’s once mundane website design into an HTML 5 powered interface. We’ve all seen the preview video (shown above) but the question is whether this deployment will asher in a new era in web development.
Over the last few months there has been a lot of speculation over the supposed release of a Chrome OS powered device. It’s not suffice to say; all these rumours have been spurred on by an unwavering, wishful craving for a worthy competitor to Apple’s Ipad.
As most of you developers already know, Google released their developer preview of the Chrome Web store a few weeks ago. Already a lot of people in Google’s Chromium OS Dev channel have been jostling for the opportunity to try out their Web Apps in the Web Store.
