Submission + - Google OS

AtomicDevice writes: According to the BBC:
Google Chrome OS will be aimed initially at small, low-cost netbooks, but will eventually be used on PCs as well.
Google said netbooks with Chrome OS could be on sale by the middle of 2010.
"We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you on to the web in a few seconds," said the blog post written by Sundar Pichai, vice-president of product management, and Google's engineering director Linus Upson.

They've even got a guy named linus working on it!

Submission + - Zubbles pre-orders now open

AtomicDevice writes: Apparently, Zubbles, the colored bubbles company, is finally accepting pre-orders, and you, the everyday consumer, can actually get awesome colored bubbles. They sent out an email to those on the waiting list (of which I am a proud member):
Hello to all of you awaiting Zubbles Magic, the World's First
Colored Bubbles! Thank you for your support and patience over
the past few years! We are thrilled to announce, to all of you
before anyone else, that the first bottles for public release
are currently in production and a limited supply will be ready
to ship sometime in the next couple of weeks. As a result, we
are ready to take pre-orders on our website:

We regret that we are only able to take orders for the U.S. and
Canada at this point. To those of you from other countries, we
apologize for the delay, and rest assured that we are working to
make Zubbles available to you very soon.

Thank you again,
