Google had a lot to show us all on Tuesday, but nothing was more interesting to us than the Pixel Slate. Sure, we’ve known quite a bit about it, but there were some surprises in there that even we didn’t know about. Getting our hands on this device took me from excited to outright fanboy […]

While we are replete with leaks ahead of Google’s hardware event in a couple days, there’s a certain comfort in seeing software-based features that are coming for Chrome OS. After all, we’ll soon be in the part of the year where most everything has been introduced and becomes available. At that point, there are the […]
As I said the other day, until this Google event has come and gone, it is silly season around here. Just a few days ago, a GeekBench test showcased the first internal look at what we can expect to see in the Google Pixel Slate, also known as ‘Nocturne’.
It is silly season around Google, folks. Welcome! For the next week, expect a continued flow of leaks around all things #madebyGoogle as we ramp up to the event on October 9th. Today’s news comes via Phone Arena who found Google’s ‘Nocturne’ device lurking around in GeekBench. After seeing this, I quickly went to GeekBench […]
We’ve been covering both the new Pixelbook and mystery #madebyGoogle tablet ‘Nocturne’ for quite some time now. Between the leaks and commits over the past few months, we have a decent picture of what we are fully expecting to see at the Google hardware event in just under 2 weeks. One thing we’ve yet to […]
We covered the slew of updated features that were introduced in Chrome OS 70 first in the Dev Channel. The majority of these updates affect tablet mode in general, which isn’t a big surprise given what we are expecting to see at Google’s hardware event just a couple weeks from now.
For the past year, a few Chromebooks have utilized the same high-resolution screen and we’ve been completely fine with that. The Pixelbook, HP Chromebook x2, Samsung Chromebook Pro and Samsung Chromebook Plus all utilize a 2400×1600 resolution screen with good color and brightness and we’ve yet to see anything in the high-res category apart from […]
We’re getting close to the end of the line, folks, and the leaks are coming from every side. We had eyes on some sort of Chrome OS tablet not long ago along with a smattering of updated Pixelbook leaks, so the hype machine is kicking in full-force. Today’s leaks come courtesy of About Chromebooks where […]
We only have about 3 weeks left before the big Google hardware event on October 9th. While the jury is out on whether or not Google has anything surprising in store for the Pixel 3 line of phones, there’s no doubt that there’s much to look forward to when we start talking Chromebooks. It’s a […]
Chrome OS has been a desktop-focused OS since the beginning. That comes as no surprise to anyone, right? Well, with all the most recent changes to Chrome OS both on the software and hardware front, there is more movement than ever getting Chrome OS ready for tablet use cases. With the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 […]
If you need any proof that Google does, in fact, listen to customers, this particular reversal shows that is at least the case when it comes to Chrome OS software decisions. This seems like a small change and it is. To be honest, it is an issue that simply never should have been an issue […]
UPDATE: The link to the bug report has been blocked after this article was published. Looks like we probably hit a bit to close to home! We’re only 31 days out from Google’s upcoming #madebyGoogle hardware event, and though the leaks of the Pixel phones have been rampant to the point of absurdity, we’ve seen […]
