Toshiba Chromebook 2

It’s been a very long time since a new Operating System got any kind of traction on the desktop market. Traditionally, it’s always been Windows, MacOS and Linux. But now there’s Chrome OS. Sure, it’s based on Linux, but it’s very different from distributions like Ubuntu. It’s easy, very very easy. Chrome OS boots in seconds, and allows you to use online services without worrying about things like drivers, updates and viruses.

Promising new tablets!

I’ve been a tablet-fan since the now-infamous CrunchPad was announced, long before the iPad. As much as I love my iPod Touch, it’s small screen makes it less than ideal for casual surfing on the couch. In my opinion, five or seven inch tablets make little sense if portability is not a requirement, so I’ve been keeping an eye out for nine or ten inch tablets, preferably with Android.

Let me be very clear about this. I think the iPad is a very well-designed and made product. If anyone but Apple had made it I’d already have one. But I don’t want to be tied to iTunes, and I certainly don’t want the manufacturer controlling what I can and can’t do with it. That’s why I’m glad that a couple of interesting competitors were just revealed at CES.
