After details about Google offering a Google branded phone called Nexus One word is that they also come up with their own Chrome OS netbook in 2010. According to TechCrunch, multiple sources report that the company already has issued an RFP (Request for Proposal) to a hardware manufacturer specifying details about the system. The document, […]
According to an article on TechCrunch, Google is going to release Chrome OS within a week from now, thereby keeping their promise to give “more updates” in fall 2009. If true, Chrome OS will be available before 20th November, 2009. TechCrunch claims to have this information from “a reliable source”. I’m expecting an early version […]
An article on Gizmodo gave the fake Chrome OS beta version heavy promotion. Read the update of my original article at http://chromeos-blog.com/chrome-os-beta-fake/.
The fakers out there are busy as bees. Now another type of fake hit the net. This time it’s a video, that allegedly shows the login process to Google Chrome OS, the Chrome browser, a chess game and the application switch screen. Although it looks really nice, it is a fake.
[UPDATE 11/19: Google officially released the source code of Chrome OS. You can find a tutorial on how to install it here.] Now finally a fake distribution of Chrome OS appeared on the internet. To an unexperienced user, it may look like it is actually released by Google, but IT IS NOT! At http://sites.google.com/site/chromeoslinux/home someone […]

Well, guess what! Another set of screenshots appeared. This time they are released by Pete Cashmore of Mashable, who claims to have got them from an “unfamiliar source”. In the lower left corner of the screen you can see the text “Developers beta 0.1.15”. It seems to waste a lot of the screen size in […]
There’s a really good article on TechCAKE on how Google Chrome OS is regarded from different perspectives. To make it short: people will love it. But for different reasons. According to the article Google’s main goal is (of course) to control the cloud and make lots of money. Geeks will love it for a reason […]
The makers of Chrome OS screenshots in the past weeks obviously gained imitators. I found another set of likely-fake screenshots on engadget.com. This time the authenticity is confirmed by a “genuine” Google Development Team sticker. The operating system is Google Chrome OS Alpha 1.01 and it looks like the Chrome browser with some extra tabs […]
The blogger community DownloadSquad shows first screenshots of Chrome OS on their website. The pictures are supposed to show the Alpha-version 0.2.5. They show the desktop and a “Google Browser 3.5 Beta”. In my opinion, it’s clearly a fake, but see it yourself.
