Tech: Curious about Google Chrome OS? Now you can try it out, easy

  • OK, we know it’s here. And like us, you’re probably curious. Fortunately, gdgt realized the same thing, so they hacked the Gibson and came up with a way for people to try it out on their desktops using virtual machines. Sounds like fun. source

Tech: Dear Apple: Please don’t load OSX up with annoying ads

  • They applied for a patent to do just that. Yikes. Word on the street is that Apple applied for a scary-sounding patent which would allow them to place advertisements within a reduced-cost version of their operating system. The ads would be audiovisual in nature and would limit system functionality when playing. May we just say to Steve Jobs and company: Are you out of your )#&(!)(# mind? source

Tech: Fake Steve Jobs trashes all over the emergence of a Google OS

  • Somehow if you put out a new operating system you’ll get more people using the Internet and then you’ll be able to sell more of those $#%@*^ little ads?
  • Fake Steve Jobs (a.k.a. Daniel Lyons) • Discussing why Google’s new operating system is going to fail. Our favorite part? When he trashes on the tiny size of the netbook market. “Frankly, if the entire netbook market caught fire,” he says, “I wouldn’t piss on it to put it out. But that’s just me.” Oh Fake Steve. *fawn* • source

  • chrome Last night, Google surprised the tech-hungry masses just getting to bed by announcing that they are going to release a new operating system called Chrome OS designed to work with Netbooks and PCs and compete with Microsoft.
  • android Strangely enough, just the day before, an open-source group released version 0.2 of Live-Android, which just happens to be a version of Google’s mobile OS designed to boot on x86 PCs. Wait, you mean they have two OSes for PCs now? source

Tech: Next on Google’s list? A new operating system based on Chrome

  • Windows is screwed. Tonight, Google announced to the world that they’re launching a new Web-leaning OS that will lean on netbooks at first but is also targeted towards desktop PCs. The idea is that it’s a simple OS for people who largely live on the Web. They plan to open-source the software later this year and hope to have something to show for their hard work by the middle of next year.
  • What about Android? We know you’re thinking – doesn’t Google have Android already? Well, yeah. But Google doesn’t mind. “While there are areas where Google Chrome OS and Android overlap,” writes VP Sundar Pichai, “we believe choice will drive innovation for the benefit of everyone, including Google.” So yeah. We expect Windows to go the way of IE’s market share in about five years. source
