Inside Look: The Fast and the Furious Chromebook


They’ve done it again. Yeah it’s the same. It’s Google. They’ve done it. Google’s new Chromebook that was released on June 15,2011. Google, which already has many products running all on the web, now have their own operating system that runs and lives on the internet. Yeah, it’s true.

Google believes that people use the internet on the computers the most. Would you believe this or not? The Chromebook is  a computer for the people who only use the internet on their computers. You might have to write some documents or something that involves in Microsoft Office software. Google has that all covered. If you have a Google account then you can basically use that for your needs of documentation or presentation with Google documents. So it’s pretty useful I guess.

Features: The Google Chromebook has a quite of lot of features that all run on the internet. Unlike other computers, the Chromebook only takes 8 seconds and you’ll be on the web. That’s because the Chromebook doesn’t have to run on any BIOS to get that started and booted. It’s just a browser that opens up and asks for you to sign up to you Google account and you’re up and running. On regular computers you have to run many things before you get to the desktop and in which getting the desktop running takes a little while. While on the Chromebook you just take 8 seconds to boot the browser and get it up and running. Don’t worry you’ll always be connected no matter where you are. With the Chromebook, you can basically take it anywhere you want to and still be connected to the internet. The Chromebook has both Wi-Fi and 3G connections with Verizon Wireless. Just don’t to do enthusiastic about the 3G because it may not be as fast as you wish it to be. Remember there’s the Wi-Fi model and 3G model so you’ll get 100 MB free from Verizon 3G every month.  Battery supply has a great amount and can last long for many days. The Chromebook has your online storage all on the cloud (But I wonder where that cloud is!). So, if you lose your laptop and get another one, you’ll work will be right there just as you left it. Another one of the features are that you can allow friends and family access their accounts through your Chromebook without doing anything to your account. There’s is also a Guest feature for people who don’t have a Google account and just want to use the internet. The Chromebook is always fresh. It updates itself everyday with security, OS, and many other things without even bothering you with those annoying pop-ups saying update ready. Security isn’t a problem with the Chromebook at all. Updates keep the computer fresh from viruses and malware. The sandbox environment also keeps away the viruses from your computer. So when you have 2 things your working on, each one is protected by the sandbox, so if you ever get a tab that has viruses then that page may crash, but it won’t affect anything else on the computer or on the 2 things you were working on. The guest mode also helps keep people from accessing your account and work. The verified boot will detect anything wrong when booting the Chromebook. If there’s anything wrong, then the computer will recover it self and you can go on doing your work. Data encryption will safely store your work and web apps and other memory in the cloud away from anyone’s access at all.

So the Chromebook seems pretty useful, but it just may not be the best computer for the people who are more into computers with programming, creating software, and working with web development. So if you’re a main web user I think you have a great reccomendation: The Chromebook.

MW3: Modern Warfare 3! AR3 YOU R3ADY?


Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s recent poster for the promotion of the game.

The biggest Call of Duty franchise has once again done it. It’s new hit sequel to it’s blockbuster Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warefare 3, will be the next big thing for all gamers. I’m predicting that this will probably become the greatest game to make a record to beat Call of Duty: Black Ops. Modern Warfare 3 is now ready for all sorts of action packed fun and everyone is ready for it.

As said later last week, Activision and Infinity Ward sent out news for pre-orders for the new games. Within the next day already half the country had pre-ordered the game. That was fast. Not much people are ready to pre-order the game until the game really comes out on November 8th, 2011, and when reviews are to be released for the game. Everyone is just waiting and waiting until the game finally comes out.

This isn’t the best part of just the game. Activision had taken it another step. Check out Call of Duty: Elite. An online game service to check maps, guns , and everything else. Right know it’s in the beta testing mode so don’t get too excited about it. You can currently go and check this out at http://www.callofduty.com/elite. It is a really cool beta and has some really great features along with the game too.

MW3 is also coming with some more action packed features to feed off of Modern Warfare 2. Here you’re in the situation of a the same person from MW2 (forgot his name), but here you’re in the situation of a big war where USA is involved of being bombed in some of it’s cities. Germany, France, and England are in the stage of war. That’s pretty much all the teasers and trailers tell us. There’s nothing else we know from this game. Get ready guys for a ride that will take you into some deep, deep, addicting gaming for probably the rest of your year.

P.S.

The website will be under the control of another author during the summer due to some problems with my computer etc. I will get that all fixed and then it will be possible for me to come back and take over the website. Thanks!
