In June, Google had announced its endeavor to develop and release an operating system for notebooks, netbooks and smartbooks - the Google Chrome Operating System. Since then, the web search engine giant's creation is being eagerly awaited. The wait might end very soon now. Speculations are that the release of the Chrome OS is imminent, and might just happen within 7 days.
With all mobile phone makers jumping in to make the most of the currently very lucrative smartphones market, PC manufacturer Dell does not want to be left behind and has announced plans to release a range of smartphones, which will be equipped with Google's popular Android mobile software, to be marketed as Mini 3 phones.
With the recently-announced slash in the extra-storage price of its photo-sharing site Picasa Web Albums, Google now offers cheaper extra cloud storage, over and above the 1GB free photo and video storage space.
The reduced over-the-free-limit storage cost now ranges from an annual $5 for 20GB to $4,096 per year for a whopping 16TB (terabytes).
