Google has been pushing out some crazy changes lately. Here’s a look at some of them. Gmail Motion is a system that allows you to write emails via motion through a webcam. Google Docs is also implementing motion into how you control your files in the future. Autocomplete has been around for a while now in the search function and …
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.
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. After all, if the operating systems are becoming more complex and user friendly, wouldn’t it be fitting to take a gander into what hardware might become?
There have been many questions raised in the last few weeks regarding how secure private information will be in Chrome OS. Due to the fact that no data is stored on the hard drive (like traditional operatining systems) but rather on the “cloud”; there is much concern on what Google may do with all this information. This yet again presents a huge risk of loss of data if anything ever happens to the Google servers.
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.
Ok, so this is an awesome video release by the Google Dev Team. This tutorial basically aims to explain the functions of Goiogle Chrome and why it might turn out to be important. They emphasize the importance of web browsing and try to justify why Chrome OS is such a “bare bones” OS and why it is so centered on the Chrome browser.
Recently I uploaded a guide on how to download and install Google’s Chrome Operating system. Even though this guide was quite sufficient for the more profficient computer users, I thought it would be great to share a step by step video guide as well.
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
Chrome OS is a very lightweight operating system designed for cloud computing. Despite all of this I was still very surprised at the super fast boot times Google achieved with it. Google completely re-thought the way that a computer is supposed to start up and did away with the most unnecessary things that we see in Windows and Apple configurations.
One thing I noticed though is that Google is apparently “doing away with hard disks and is adopting SSD support” for the new OS. This to me implies that it won’t work on traditional hard drives and will only work on “Google certified netbooks”. Maybe this means most of us won’t be able to “upgrade but rather buy brand new machines.
I thought this looked really cool. Google has finally completed its first two cities in 3d building view. As we all know Google “invented” the street view and it seems like they are taking things to a whole new level.
I looked up some videos to show just what this update is capable of doing. It’s absolutely awesome and it’s as if you are actually flying over the city. One then wonders how Google plans to integrate such software as Google Earth into Chrome OS; there was hardly any mention of this in their current previews of the software.
