Google Working On Touchscreen Retina Plus Chromebook?

While Microsoft's Windows 8 ship is sinking, Google's Chromebooks are picking up. They were the #1 best selling devices on Amazon.com.

Even hard core Microsoft partners like HP and Lenovo have joined the Chromebook bandwagon and are offering affordable Chrome OS device. But Google is not stopping there. Unlike Microsoft Google is going for innovation and better hardware.

The company is reportedly working on a high-end touchscreen Chromebook which may feature an amazing 2560 x 1700 pixels resolution to compete with Apple's retina Macbooks.

This report was leaked in a video which was created by Slinky agency. CEO of Slinky, Victor Koch wrote in his Google+ page, "Our all servers were attacked by hackers, and we apologize for the fact that many projects have been shown previously!"

According to the story-line, 'hijackers' took some videos and posted them on YouTube. We don't know if that's part of the 'strategy' to create hype for Google's Pixel Chromebook which the company may launch during its I/O summit which will happen this summer or there were some 'real' hijacking.

The video ends with this line "Designed by Google. Down to the last pixel."

It makes perfect sense as there has been no 'Google' Chromebook after cr-48 to join the Nexus range of smatphones and tablets. The video doesn't give out any information on who is the OEM partner for Chromebook Pixel.

What's your guess?

KDE 4.10 Packages Available For openSUSE

Posted: 06 Feb 2013 03:29 AM PST

KDE 4.10 was released this morning and it has already brought the Internet down. While Arch Linux users are waiting for the mirrors to sync openSUSE users can upgrade to KDE 4.10 and enjoy the new features and performance enhancement the new features offer.

Luca Beltrame writes:

Packages are available in the KDE:Distro:Factory repository (which is where the packages to land in 12.3 are tested) for openSUSE Factory (soon to be 12.3) and openSUSE 12.2 and soon (when the Open Build Systen finishes rebuilding a number of packages) in the KDE:Release:410  repository for openSUSE 12.2 users.

He further calls for contribution and says:

If you want to contribute and help KDE packaging in openSUSE, use the KDE:Distro:Factory version, otherwise stick to the KDE:Release:410 repository.

KDE fans can join the KDE community on Google+.
