In a twist of fate Chrome OS has hit the limelight once more. It’s been a month or so since we’ve heard any major news about Google’s pet project and I have to admit; this was becoming a concern for many. It has almost been a year since Google announced their plans to release Chrome OS but the Internet giant …
In an interview with Bloomberg, Acer has moved it’s Chrome OS netbook release to third quarter rather than the perceived second quarter of 2010. The pioneering Netbook producer has also spilt the beans on its upcoming product line and the news seems very good indeed:
Qualcomm have announced that they are now adding Google Chrome OS to their list of supported platforms, with CEO Paul Jacobs revealing the news on-stage at CES 2010 this morning.
CES 2010 is only a few days away and we are all anticipating leaks and announcement from all the world technology leaders. The big questions remain though, at least questions that we are concerned with.
We’ve already seen that early builds of Google’s Chromium OS can be hacked onto existing machines, but those Chrome OS netbooks that the software giant has planned for next year have remained curiously elusive until now.
Google seems to be going all out this year. It seems like they have a lot more planned for their upcoming Chrome OS Operating system than once thought.
This week we heard the most fascinating news yet that Google may actually be partnering with a select number of companies to provide what the news media is calling a “Google Branded NetbooK”.
As we are all currently celebrating the newly announced Chrome OS for the netbook market; I thought it would be fitting to take a sneak peak into the future of netbooks and laptops.

Are these screenshots of the HTC Hero running Android? Well I certainly think so! Google seems to be working on a new minor upgrade of their current Android 2.0 and shown above is a screenshot of what is believed to be the upcoming Android 2.1. More is yet to come but this is certainly exciting. It’s still early days so the screenshots are still to be confirmed as authentic.
Our goal here is to give you an idea of how to get started.
Note: For all instructions, make sure you download the client into a local directory. Placing the source and compiling on a network partition will drive you nuts.
Google wave is probably still the most mysterious of Google’s upcoming software releases. We’ve all heard much about the anticipated Chrome OS, and we do have a relatively clear idea of what it’s going to do.
I thought it would be great to hear from the Google team, and what they feel the software will be most useful for
Hey all, there seems to have been a huge surge of downloads available on the internet for Google Chrome OS Beta. For those of you interested in trying it out, here is the download. I don’t know what the legality of this is due to the fact that Chrome will be free and is based on an open source Linux platform anyway. Just in case, only download and try this out at your own discretion.
This video was released in may this year but a lot of people hadn’t seen it yet.
For myself, I think Google Wave is the most amazing peace of software yet from google. We are all waiting for it with much anticipation. Just like any other piece of software only time will tell how great or aweful it may be. As for now all we have to go by are previews and leaks like the one below.
