Windows 8, A Perfect Choice For Tablets?

There is no stopping to innovation; Windows 8 is the clear picture! Built even a year back, Microsoft offered an Operating system that is way faster than its forerunners and consumes less memory.

Pandora’s New Layout Came When It Was Supposed To

Pandora’s new layout is a welcome change for me, primarily because it is based on HTML5. With the previous version of Pandora, my 32-bit Firefox browser would often crash on my 64-bit operating system due to the flash player.

Since, I no longer use Firefox, it hasn’t been a problem with good ol’ trusty Chrome, but it’s still nice to know that Firefox will be safe.

Chrome OS Has Been Hacked, What Now?

After Google has stated time and time again how secure its Chrome operating system was, we’ve just got wind that the operating system has been hacked. Now, before you start freakin’ out, don’t worry, it wasn’t some 14 year old.

The hackers were actually two researchers from the Black Hat security conference with White Hat security and they got through the ScratchPad- a Chrome application that lets you compose text files and save them to Google Docs.

DEAL: HP TouchPad Is Available For $50 Less

In the current run in the dominating tablet industry, it is really hard to keep up. I reckon HP has realized this fact pretty quickly.

HP recently released its HP touchpad, a tablet computer which featured HP’s WebOS 3.0 operating system. Unfortunately, contrary to what HP had hoped, the device had not been able to garner a lot of success because of its competitors such as the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom.

About 48 percent of the OS market belongs to Android while mere 19 percent is owned by iOS.

For those of us T-Mobile G2 users who felt a little left in the dust when the G2X came out, and later- when we found out the G2 was discontinued, you may have something to cheer for. Assuming you’ve steered away from rooting your device, you will soon get to enjoy Android’s latest Gingerbread OS on your phone.

The new operating system will be a nice blast of ‘newness’ for those of us who’ve gotten a bit tired of Froyo features. The update will roll out to all G2 users within the next quarter.

Google Chrome Updates For Mac’s Lion

Google has recently updated its Chrome browser to work better with Apple’s new operating system, OS X Lion. The new version adds support for Lion’s two-fingered page-swiping feature, for those interested.

The version is dubbed 14.0.835.0 in the Chrome’s developer channel for the Mac. Something that is a little strange, is that the new version does not support Lion’s full-screen mode, which may perplex a number of individuals.
