Yesterday Engadget released a more complete list of the pricing details for the Samsung Series 5 and the Acer Chromebook devices in their various flavours. Each device comes in either wi-fi only or 3g and wi-fi versions. The Samsung Series 5 will come in two colours; white and black.
A few days ago we reported that Google was planning on reworking their Chrome Logo. News coming in from Chrome Story and a number of emails we have received from readers show that the predictions were indeed correct. Google has now begun to roll out the new logo through their dev channel:
There’s been a long understanding between the world of hackers and software companies. They’re not supposed to like one another and each is working ever more diligently to ‘defeat’ and humiliate the other. It’s a crime-world of e-peen and secrecy and the status quo was understood by both sides. That is, until Google got involved. Their approach has certainly been …
Google has stopped all shipments of CR-48 Chrome Notebooks to users in the USA. This unfortunately also comes as bad news for Google fans outside the USA who have been awaiting the extension of the pilot program to their countries.
An interesting tweak to the Chromium source code shows that Google’s Chrome Browser may just be getting a new logo. The above picture shows the new Chromium logo but it is most likely that the Chrome Browser and possibly Chrome OS will be getting a more colourful version of this logo.
Yesterday Google released a ‘major’ update for Chrome OS which they hope will fix the trackpad issues that have plagued the CR-48 among other things. This brings Chrome OS to R10 (release 0.10.156.46). Here are the cool changes that you should expect to see:
We’ve heard a lot of reports about the launch of the Apple App Store and it’s percieved success but we haven’t heard as much about Google’s Web Store. Well, with the help of Chrome OS Apps we are able to bring you an in-depth look at how the Chrome Web Store has faired so far.
Yes, Google is at it again! It seems like giving out Chrome Notebooks at large events has become their trademark style. Just a month or two ago, Google also shelled out a few hundred of these devices to a school and more recently they partnered with a couple of App developers who were given the opportunity to give these devices away to their customers.
It has been over two months since the release of Google’s Chrome Web Store to the general public; ever since, almost 3,000 web applications have been published by hundreds of developers. It seems long overdue for us to publish a list of web apps that we think you will like. Below are 5 categories and in each we’ve listed what we believe are the two best apps. All descriptions of the apps were provided by the respective developers.
In the absence of real news to discuss – many words have been written about Android and Chrome OS converging. Quite frankly, some of the discussions, carried a merit level not seen since the Heaven’s Gate religious group. They thought Earth was about to be recycled (wiped clean, renewed, refurbished and rejuvenated), and that the only chance to survive was to leave it immediately. Somehow Nike sneakers where involved (jump off earth and land on comet?). The net result was blood shed, the Nike sneakers were discontinued, and the comet is still enjoying its run through space.
Today Acer is is to have announced their plans to release the first ever Chrome OS powered device which is surprisingly a monitor (rather than the netbook we’ve all been expecting). It’s unsurprising though that Acer has been so quick to make this announcement as they have been agitating to be the first company on the market with a Chrome OS powered gizmo. The device will be called the DX241H and will go on sale latter on this year.
During the just ended Mobile World Conference Eric Schmidt revealed a rather murky yet satisfyingly revealing road-map for Chrome OS and Android. Long has been the debate aboutwhich operating system will succeed the other but it seems as if Google’s vision of a unified platform is still the order of the day.
Just a few months ago we featured a video from the guys at ARMdevices who were showing off a ‘Freescale I.MX51′ board which they had developed to run Chromium OS. It seems like the momentum (for lack of a better word) has picked up as yesterday ARMdevices showed off another concept chip-set which is being developed by Texas instruments. The unwittingly …
