from http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel :

Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Chrome up to date. (If you don't want Google's repository, do "sudo touch /etc/defaults/google-chrome" before installing the package.)

But it didn't (and I didn't touch /etc/defaults/google-chrome)

+ - New Mars rover named 'Curiosity'->

Submitted by sveard
sveard (1076275) writes "space.com reports that NASA's next Mars rover, the Mars Science Laboratory, has been named 'Curiosity.

The name comes courtesy of Clara Ma, a 12-year-old sixth-grade student at Sunflower Elementary school in Lenexa, Kan. As her prize, Ma wins a trip to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif., where she will be invited to sign her name directly onto the rover as it is being assembled.

Curiosity will be larger and more capable than any craft previously sent to land on the red planet. It will check to see whether the environment in a selected landing region ever has been favorable for supporting microbial life and preserving evidence of life. The rover also will search for minerals that formed in the presence of water and look for several chemical building blocks of life.

The rover is expected to launch in 2011."
