Chromebook

The future is here, well around June 15th anyways.

Re-blogged from Urbergizmo

We live blogged the Google I/O keynote on Wednesday where major announcements were made, including the launch of the Google  Chromebook computers manufactured by Samsung and Acer that will be available June 15 in the US for $449 (Samsung WiFi version), $499 (Samsung WiFi+3G version) and $349 (Acer).

“The future is on the web”…”in a browser”, Google says, so the search giant is bringing its dream to the market in the form of the Chromebook.

For those who did not follow the Google computer story, since the beta model codenamed CR-48 launched last year, here is the deal: the Chromebook runs the Chrome OS and users have access to data and applications only from the web via the Chrome Browser. Google claims that this new “computing model” enables a higher level of security, since users do not have to install anti-viruses, instead relying on web services and Google “multi-layers” security including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot, features that were in the CR-48, go to this page and this page to get a detailed overview.

Samsung Galaxy Player Ad

Samsung just released their Galaxy S phone and news about their ipad competitor the Galaxy Tab. Today they released a new ad for their newest phone the Galaxy Player. The ad is fairly long showing all the possibilities and features that Samsung and Google have to offer. My favorite part of the ad has to be at the 1:25 min mark =), how can you not love that sound that the little guy makes.
