As Google I/O 2011 reaches its climax, the company debuts its first-ever Chrome OS ultraportable netbook. Its built with businesses and educational institutions in mind, hoping to move all their operations to the clouds.
The 12.1-inch Series 5 is a strikingly svelte machine, and there's no doubt that holding a 0.79-inch rig feels really good. The company took a bit of time to play up its "Power Plus" battery technology, lasting up to 8.5 hours with "active use," or 5 hours of straight video. There's also a new hitch in the Verizon Wireless data deal -- 100MB will be tossed in each month on the 3G model, but contrary to what we'd heard earlier, that ends after two years (rather than lasting for the life of the product).
Apple has just made its second-generation iPad official!
It features a 1GHz dual-core A5 chip and, finally, cameras, both on the front and rear. The new CPU is said to be up to twice as fast, with graphics performance up to nine times better than on the original iPad, while power requirements have been kept the same. Battery life is, consequently, unaltered, with Apple promising 10 hours. Pricing, too, has been left unchanged, starting at $499 for a 16GB WiFi-only iPad 2 and stretching up to $829 for a WiFi + 3G SKU with 64GB of storage. The new tablet will come with an HDMI output capable of 1080p -- which will set you back $39 for the requisite dongle, called an Apple Digital AV Adapter -- but there will sadly be no rumblings of Thunderbolt connectivity here. What you will get is an enlarged speaker grille on the back, as expected, and the same 1024 x 768 resolution and IPS LCD screen technology as on the original iPad.
720p video recording at 30fps will be on tap from the rear-facing camera, which can also do a 5x digital zoom if you're into that kind of thing, whereas the front-facing imager will record at a more modest VGA resolution, also at 30fps.
There's a new cover for the device, which is best defined by Steve Jobs himself: "We designed the case right alongside the product. It's not a case -- it's a cover." Basically, it's a magnetic flap that protects the front and automatically wakes and puts the device to sleep according to whether it's open or closed. Guess we know what that proximity sensor was about now. These Smart Covers will cost $39 in plastic or $69 if you opt for leather.
The iPad 2 is 33 percent thinner than its predecessor, at a mind-melting 8.8mm, and a little lighter at just over 600g, while paintjob options have
Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Google is already talking to partners about the project, and they'll soon be working with the open source community.
Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. The OS is being designed to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And as they did for the Google Chrome browser, they are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.
Google Chrome OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips and we are working with multiple OEMs to bring a number of netbooks to market next year. The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any platform.
Google Chrome OS is a new project, separate from Android. Android was designed from the beginning to work across a variety of devices from phones to set-top boxes to netbooks. Google Chrome OS is being created for people who spend most of their time on the web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems. Although, there will be areas where Google Chrome OS a

It fits in a manila folder, you can slide it under a door, and if you threw it hard enough you could probably chop someone in half with the thing. It's the thinnest, and if we may say so, sexiest laptop around today: the MacBook Air.
Apple asked itself what would happen if an iPad and a MacBook Air "hooked up." Benefits from the iPad? "Instant on... great battery life, amazing standby time... solid state storage... and it's thinner and lighter." It's 0.68-inches thick at its thickest, 0.11-inches at its thinnest, and weighs 2.9 pounds (the old MacBook Air was 0.76-inches thick and weighed 3 pounds).
Naturally, Apple is going unibody construction here, with one of those big new glass trackpads. They're also sticking with a 13.3-inch screen, running at a 1440 x 900 resolution (with an 11.6-inch "little brother" to boot). There's SSD storage, a 1.86GHz or 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo processor (the same ones available on existing MacBook Airs, apparently), GeForce 320m graphics, and 2GB of RAM standard. Apple says its new "more stringent" battery life tests offer 7 hours of "wireless web" and 30 days of "standby." Prices start at $1,299 for 128GB and $1,599 for 256GB of storage; they're available today.
Kinect for Xbox 360 brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways with no controller required. Simply step in front of the sensor and Kinect recognizes you and responds to your gestures.
This can be consider the biggest leap in gaming experience since the advent of the Nintendo Wii, trying to put Microsoft on the map for true innovation and ingenuity picking off from the success of the Xbox gaming console. This advertising campaign is to sensitize the gaming population about the new controller free sensor while partnering with major media networks.
Disney, Nickelodeon and other major media networks have developed custom promotions for Kinect, and television ads will run in places where people don’t normally see Xbox advertising – during shows such as “Glee,” “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” “The X-Factor,” and “Dancing with the Stars.”
Here it is, the new Twitter.com experience. As you can see the entire thing has been revamped! yes, there are now videos and pictures, but these are on the side in the new right-side pane. Even the twitter logo has been redesigned.
As Twitter said during the event, the site will be incrementally rolling out worldwide over the next few weeks. It just got turned on on my page, and at first glance it does look pretty amazing.
Earlier, Twitter CEO Evan Williams prefaced his announcement by mentioning that Twitter.com is already far and away the most popular way for accessing the microblogging service, commanding 78% of unique users (which the company defines as "Of all the people who logged into their Twitter account during the month, what percentage did so via each service."). Combined with Twitter's growing need to serve up impressions to advertisers, it's certainly no surprise that the company is now looking to keep people more engaged on its website.
Lets hope the new dashing interface lives up to all the hype by helping user access more information and create a platform for adverts
Windows7 Phone made its New York debut. Steve Ballmer introduced, what he and everyone at Microsoft hopes to be a killer product that will rival the Apple iPhone and the Google Android. Ultimately, the market will decide that fate.
What does the product now have? Not that many Apps right now but consumers can expect that to change any time soon.
What is happening is that there will be nine Windows Phone 7 devices that will be available. The manufacturers are Dell, HTC, Samsung, and LG. Ballmer says that there will be phones keyboards, phones that can play to TV, some with beautiful screens or very large screens and rugged for-the-hardest-use-type phones.
Ballmer explained that instead of one phone for all people, there would be different phones for different people. For example, there is the business-friendly LG Quantum from AT&T. Then there is the media-heavy HTC Surround and Samsung Focus. For T-Mobile there's the HTC HD7 and Dell Venue Pro. Microsoft hopes that the level of customization will draw people to their product. The attitude that they are trying to convey is a feel of "always delightful and wonderfully mine."

The new Army of Awesome program unveiled yesterday is designed to bring together Firefox experts and browser users in search of technical help.
Anyone with a Twitter account can join Mozilla's Army of Awesome. Volunteers just browse through a list of recent tweets from users that stream on the Army's Web page. If a volunteer spots a tweet that he or she would like to respond to, the volunteer just clicks on it. Firefox will open a window in Twitter in which the volunteer can choose one of several generic responses created by Mozilla or can tweet a personal piece of advice instead. The reply is then sent to the person who tweeted the query.
Some of the tweets are from people just blowing off steam or making comments about Firefox that don't really need a response. But other tweets do point to specific questions and problems that can be answered by Firefox users in the know.
The Army of Awesome is part of Mozilla's SUMO project, short for support.mozilla.com. In an effort to help Firefox users with technical issues, Mozilla offers its own online Firefox Knowledge Base along with a support forum where people can ask and answer questions about the browser. The different support options are available for the PC version of Mozilla, for the mobile edition, and for Thunderbird, Mozilla's e-mail software.
Finally, the Apple iPad. The name iPad is a killing word -- more than a product -- it's a statement, an idea, and potentially a prime mover in the world of consumer electronics
Before iPad it was called the Apple Tablet, the Slate, Canvas, and a handful of other guesses -- but what was little more than rumor and speculation for nearly ten years is now very much a reality. Announced on January 27th to a middling response, Apple has been readying itself for what could be the most significant product launch in its history; the making (or breaking) of an entirely new class of computer for the company.
The iPad is something in between its monumental iPhone and wildly successful MacBook line -- a usurper to the netbook throne, and possibly a sign of things to come for the entire personal computer market... if Apple delivers on its promises. And those are some big promises; the company has been tossing around words like "magical" and "revolutionary" to describe what many have dismissed as nothing more than a larger version of its iPod touch.
The IPad is definitely an awesome device with it multi-touch/multi-gresture screen, cool functionality and large array of apps to download from the apple apps store, we're anticipating the next version as apple expands on the idea to revolutionize the art of computing
