Chrome OS 69 finally brings Linux apps to stable channel

Google has recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of its Chrome browser. That web browser has certainly grown up to the extent that it has become the base for an entire operating system. While Chrome OS doesn’t have anything fancy to celebrate the birthday, release version 69 is still a monumental one. In addition to bringing the UI up to the latest Material Design 2.0, it also marks the long-awaited stable release of a feature that truly extends Chrome OS beyond a mere browser-based OS: Linux support.

NVIDIA Scanner: RTX GPU Overclock in one click

NVIDIA revealed a new bit of software this week in an API for their graphics cards called NVIDIA Scanner. With NVIDIA Scanner, users are able to auto-overclock their graphics cards with the greatest of ease. NVIDIA's software does all the analyzation of the setup of the PC it's scanning, then does the overclocking with a single click. But NVIDIA Scanner isn't an app, it's an API.

Windows 10 Storage Sense will upload rarely used files to OneDrive

Windows 10 Storage Sense will upload rarely used files to OneDrive

Data storage on most PCs is cheap. Or t least cheaper than, say RAM. Adding more is almost never a problem, unless you’re talking about devices with more or less fixed storage capacities and little or no expansion capabilities. Like laptops or tablets. Since Windows 10 has to cater to them all, Microsoft is making it smarter about the way it handles data storage. In the upcoming Windows 10 update, it will make its Storage Sense feature free up even more space by offloading old files to everyone’s favorite dumping ground: the cloud.

This Photoshop CC update is radical, and I can’t wait

This Photoshop CC update is radical, and I can’t wait

Photoshop CC's most magical feature is about to get a big update. That's Content-Aware Fill, and it is easily the most important feature added to the software in the past half-decade. I use this feature constantly - especially when it comes to editing photos of gear for review. (Gotta get that dust and hair out of there before it hits the home screen.) Now it's getting much, much more versatile.

Windows 10 Your Phone now lets Insiders sync photos, SMS

Windows 10 Your Phone now lets Insiders sync photos, SMS

Without a mobile phone platform to call its own (anymore), Microsoft has little choice but to make the PC and mobile connection as seamless as possible. It did that with Cortana and, more recently, Timelines through its Android app launcher. Now it’s doing even more with the Your Phone app. Soon, users will be able to see new photos from their phones on their PCs and even send messages from their desktop or laptop without having to pick up their phone at all. All you need is the upcoming Windows 10 update.

Trend Micro apps on Mac App Store also spying on users

Trend Micro apps on Mac App Store also spying on users

Apple often boasts of its human curation of apps that go into its Mac and iOS App Stores as the best way to prevent the likes of Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal from happening. It also sings praises of the efficacy and accuracy of this method over automated systems like Google’s. Those arguments, however, may have just fallen flat on their faces when a number of popular, top-grossing apps on the Mac App Store have been reported to be behaving like spyware. Including those from a company that’s supposed to be protecting users from malware.

Viveport, the Netflix of VR games, opens on Oculus today

Much like Xerxes the first, the team behind Viveport are generous gods, and do not want to keep the service to themselves alone. As such, the Viveport subscription service just came to Oculus this morning. With the Viveport VR Store on Oculus Rift, users can drop in on the subscription service with 200 compatible titles OR buy games individually.

Google Chrome marks 10th birthday with new look, new tricks

Google Chrome marks 10th birthday with new look, new tricks

Yes, it’s almost hard to believe that Chrome is both just 10 years old and already 10 years old at the same time. The browser has significantly changed how users experience the web and has even influenced other browsers, from tabs that don’t crash the entire browser to an address bar that does almost everything. It’s far from perfect, of course, and the Chrome development team knows it. So for its 10th anniversary, Google Chrome is getting not just a makeover but a few new skills as well.

Chrome T-Rex offline game parties with birthday hat, cake

Chrome T-Rex offline game parties with birthday hat, cake

Losing Internet connection in the middle of browsing, while undesirable, is an unavoidable fact of life. But rather than waste your time whining and groaning and gnashing your teeth, a Chrome developer would rather have you waste your time playing a game while waiting for the world to make things right again. That T-Rex game may have successfully distracted many a frustrated user, but it has been widely regarded as a one-trick pony. Now, however, it has gained a new ability. It can eat a birthday cake and grow a birthday hat on its pixelized head.
