Firefox OS will live on in tablets, keyboards, routers

Firefox OS is dead. Long live Firefox OS! Or something to that extent. Mozilla might have pulled the plug on a Firefox OS smartphone, but it technically hasn't killed the platform yet. It even hinted that Firefox OS proved to be a scalable Web-based platform and is, in fact, being used for some smart TVs.

Based on some leaked documents, the foundation is looking into bringing Firefox OS to tablets, standalone keyboards, and even routers.

Google OnHub has Chrome OS inside

A group of developers opens up the Google OnHub smart router's software to find that it runs Chrome OS. That means the device is a Chromebook - or a Chrome... Hub... as it were. While it doesn't mean you're going to be connecting the machine to a display and using it as a Chromebox any time soon, it does mean that there's far more potential for this OnHub device than Google is letting on initially. This all points to smart home control.

Google’s OnHub router has been given the teardown treatment, and the conclusion is that if you must repair something in the device, you’ll probably find yourself having to replace it, instead. Google’s new router received an overall “repairability” score of only 4 out of 10, which is pretty low, but not the worst result we’ve seen. The one readily DIY-able component is the speaker, which can be swapped out if it goes bad by someone with basic tinkering skills.
