I’ve exhausted a lot of breath and energy expressing my distaste for the Windows ecosystem. However, I can honestly say I have zero issue with this latest news from the folks at Microsoft. More on that in a moment. The Windows 10 October update will soon start rolling out to users across the globe. Early […]
We talk about a ton of stuff here at Chrome Unboxed. From Chromebooks to Chromecast to Google Assistant, the world of Chrome OS is pretty far-reaching. We save our News section for the things that are breaking news to our readers.
When some people think of Chromebooks, they immediately think of budget-friendly or perhaps even cheap. True, one of the greatest draws of Chrome OS in its infancy was the ability to get a capable device with a lightweight OS for very little cash. As of late, the premium Chromebook market is seeing massive growth and […]
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 […]
Tech blogs: “Google’s hardware leaks are out of control. They couldn’t get sloppier.” Google: “Hold my coffee.” If you haven’t caught wind of all the leaks revolving around Google’s upcoming Pixel 3 phones and now Pixelbook, I’m going to just assume you’ve sworn off media consumption in general.
Last week, 9to5Google’s Kyle Bradshaw (fellow code diver) uncovered evidence of a third-party keyboard in the works for Chrome OS. While this, in and of itself, is hardly newsworthy. The name attached to the new peripheral device is more than noteworthy. Add mappings for “Hamburger” and “Assistant” keys on Hammer/Wand/Whiskers and BRYDGE keyboards.
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 […]
Look, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. Yesterday, we were alerted to a video clip of what we firmly believe could be ‘Nocturne’, the upcoming detachable Pixelbook from Google. Just a few hours later, we received an email containing images of a Chromebook ad that pictured a Pixelbook with some seriously slimmed […]
We’re exactly one month out from Google’s next hardware event and like last year, there are a lot of rumors buzzing around October 9th launch of the Pixel 3 phone lineup as well as the possibility of multiple Pixelbooks. Just hours ago, Robby shared a video of a yet-to-be-released Chromebook that is what we believe […]
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 […]
Another Chrome Extension has come under attack this week. Mega Cloud Storage service based in New Zealand announced Tuesday in a blog post that their Chrome Web Store account had been compromised and the attacker was able to upload a corrupted version of the Mega Chrome extension. Unfortunately, Chrome extensions generally update automatically in the […]
Back when Google began spinning down support for Chrome Apps across most platforms, many thought the Chrome Web Store was about to begin the slow wind-down to obsolescence. I was in that company. I won’t lie. I simply thought Google was doing what Google so often does and were walking away from yet another marginally […]
Well, we knew it was coming and the recent rumors have now been confirmed as fact. Google will be moving their annual hardware event to the Big Apple. Invites have just been sent out to what is being officially dubbed the “Made by Google Launch Event” and not only has the venue changed, Google has […]
