Submission + - WiFi Direct - WiFi 'a whole lot easier' (bbc.co.uk)

aaaurgh writes: The BBC has an article of a new twist on the world of Wi-Fi.

Submission + - Google announces Google Chrome OS

aaaurgh writes: I guess it was only a matter of time, but Google has finally announced its plans to develop an Operating System. Initially targetting netbooks and users who live in the on-line internet world, it's their "attempt to re-think what operating systems should be". Will this make Microsoft quiver in their boots or are Google living with their heads in the cloud — only time will tell.
