Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2010

We don’t have any pics or even a release date, but Samsung’s Phil Newton has confirmed that the company will be releasing a Chrome OS netbook later this year, according to a report by Channel News in Australia. The laptop will be similar to the N210(pictured) and feature a 10.1-inch screen, 3G, WiFi, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of flash storage and a 12 hour battery life.

Rumor is that it will also run a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor. The netbook is supposed to be introduced later this year.

Google branded Chrome OS gBook on the way?There may be a Google-branded netbook on the way soon. Google has been talking about working with a bunch of manufacturers in order to be sure its Chrome OS runs well and now on top of that, multiple sources say that Google will hire an unnamed netbook maker to build a device specifically for Chrome OS.

Word is that we might see this gBook as soon as next Christmas. And by that time there will be more tiny and powerful processors to choose from, which will give this net-connected laptop some real power.

Clever Google Chrome commercial

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Check out this awesome Google Chrome commercial. They are really on to something here the way they have unleashed this one. And of course we always suspected that behind the scenes, rubber bands and hammers and stuff all make the Google machine invincible.

It’s not only creative, but kinda informative as well. Most importantly it’s fun to watch. Google has taken over the rest of the world, so maybe artsy fartsy movies will be next. So let me ask you, does this clever commercial make you want to use Chrome even more, or not?

Chrome OS and Android will one day merge

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2009

Chrome OS and Android will one day mergeSergey Brin says that “Android and Chrome will likely converge over time.” It’s unclear when this might occur though. In fact, Google CEO Eric Schmidt attempts to downplay the difference between Google’s operating systems in a recent CNET interview, which makes us wonder if Google has a clear idea of where this is going.

Schmidt prefers not to “prejudge the success” of each. “The future will unfold as it does,” he says, and the open-source community will determine the natural fit. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

Google’s Chrome OS revealed

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on November 19th, 2009

Google's Chrome OS revealedWe now have more details about the Google Chrome OS, which is a stripped-down Linux that should boot very quickly and launch a browser (Chrome). Everything that you do is web-based. Apparently users will have to buy a Chrome OS machine if they want it. Chrome will run on Intel and ARM processors.

According to Google it’s secure because the data is stored on a remote server, however if someone gets your password, well they have access to everything. They do say that Apps are more secure, because they have access to nothing, just like web apps on other OS.

Google announces Chrome OS

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

Google announces Chrome OSIt’s finally here. Chrome OS will be an open source platform that can “power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems,” and they claim the OS will be virus free and run a newly-designed windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.

It will be capable of running on x86 and ARM chips. It’s separate from Android, but there will be some overlap in concept and functionality between the two platforms. A large chunk of its Google Apps suite already supports an offline mode, so it’s all ready to go. The company says it’s currently working with several OEM manufacturers and it will initially appear on a number of netbooks coming to market sometime in the second half of 2010.

Google Chrome USB flash driveLike lollipops or Popsicles, some of us like our software on a USB drive. So, looks like some German guy is offering a no-install, “lite” version of the Google CHROME BROWSER. Google on a stick if you will. On a USB flash drive. Carsten created a portable version of Google Chrome that has all the features of the main browser but requires no installation. Just unzip all the files and start using it. It will run directly from the USB stick on any Windows computer and all of your user settings like web history, cookies, etc. will also get saved to the same folder on the stick. The software is downloadable.

Chrome joypad from Dream Cheeky

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on August 24th, 2008

Chrome joypad from Dream CheekyIt’s odd but for some reason no one has made a chrome joypad until now. This isn’t just cheap plastic pretending to be chrome either, it’s made from metal. Some of the benefits of a chrome joypad include, but are not limited to: Checking your appearance and seeing if someone else has been using it because the left oily fingerprints behind.

It’s from China’s Dream Cheeky, who are no stranger to USB gadgets and gizmos. The controller sports an 8-way directional pad, four game buttons, start/select buttons and shoulder triggers. The back of the controller has a rubber covering, so you can get a good grip. Not sure if it’s Mac compatible, but it plugs into the USB port on any PC. No word on pricing yet.

Doctor Who R/C Dalek exterminates with extreme shine

Doctor Who R/C Dalek exterminates with extreme shine
Check out this limited edition RC Dalek all polished and buffed to blind it’s enemies and make the Doctor stop and check his hair in it’s reflection. This particular Dalek is based on the “Daleks – Invasion Earth 2150 AD” movie. It’s 12-inches tall, radio-controlled and features a pullback motor with realistic Dalek action. I assume that means it yells “exterminate” and generally tries to kill anything different then itself. Also has a built-in speaker that plays you quotes from the movie.

This my friends is shiny Dalek bling for eager geek hands. And since it’s very special and ultra shiny, only 1,000 are made. Should be available in August 2008, and can be pre-ordered for $99.99.

Computer gets jammed in a toaster, becomes compu-toaster

Computer gets jammed in a toaster, becomes compu-toaster
Why anyone would want to put a computer inside of a toaster is beyond me.(As if I never thought about it). And the creator didn’t just stuff a computer into some modern plastic toaster, instead he went the full distance and jammed it in a vintage chrome toaster. And not a 2 slice job, but 4 slice.

The only downside is that one wants it to still make toast, maybe with the computer’s excess heat, but alas it has no toasting abilities. It does have a 3600 MHz processor, 2.5 inch hard drive, DVD-rom drive, and a router inside. It’s what the PC may have looked like in the 1950′s…If toast never existed.
