Inside I saw the Cr-48 box I had seen in a YouTube unboxing video and you guessed it, a Google ChromeOS Cr-48. Oh the magic of Christmas, long gone since my childhood, had returned to my warm my heart once more.
Brad Caris, one of the members of our Chrome OS Forums shared with us a ton of pictures showing his dissection of the CR-48 Chrome Notebook. There has been a lot of debate as to what the specifications of this device actually are; well Brad put all that debate to rest by cataloging each major component part of the notebook (read more about the CR-48 specs here).
More and more users in our forums are beginning to receive their CR-48 Chrome Notebooks. It’s as if manna is falling from heaven! One user though (InlineSkate) wrote a short and sweet review of his personal experiences with his Chrome Notebook. He goes through all the major issues from the device’s build quality to a look into the usability of the current Chrome OS Beta. Check out his review below and don’t forget to also join our growing community.
As Google continues to twiddle it’s fingers over Chrome OS a rival ‘cloud OS’ called ‘Jolicloud’ has been making waves for the last few months. Jolicloud Operating System was developed by a company which was started by the founder of Netvibes; the OS has been gaining popularity and already seems like a viable alternative to Google’s Chrome OS.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
This is an official video of the new Chrome OS and all it’s functions. It looks pretty sweet. It’s very simple and lightweight and great for netbooks. Personally though I think they made it a bit too simple. Some say it’s a “glorified web browser” or “google Chrome that just won’t minimize”. Whatever the case though it presents a big threat to MS and Ubuntu on the netbook arena. What are your first impressions?
