A new Acer Chromebook has shown up with some stunning specs. Elders react to Google Glass and Microsoft retires Skype. This and more just in!
Looking for the next hot Chromebook? It may very well come from Acer, as a new leak showed up from a Swedish/Norwegian/Danish retailer. The Acer Chromebook CB5 comes with some stunning specs and follows a very similar design language to Acer’s C720P Chromebook.
Specs include a 13.3-inch HD display, an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 32 GB SSD. More details should come soon.
Opinion: Now, that is looking like one mighty Chromebook! The Tegra K1 processor should keep the machine running like a boss.
Google Glass is among the industry’s most talked about devices. Some believe the smart glass could be dangerous, but others find humor in it. Us geeks have a more welcoming opinion, but have you ever wondered how the elderly feel about this sci-fi technology?
Like anything else, Glass was met with varied reactions. All seemed to be confused at first, but some of them ended up loving it. Others didn’t like it so much, but you can be sure they were all impressed. Hell a few already knew what it was!
Opinion: I love to see these reactions. It gives us an idea of how different technology seems for older generations, who saw the communications era evolve from nothing.
Microsoft aims to bring its Skype community to the latest and greatest program versions. Old Windows (v6.13 and below) and Mac (v6.14 and below) desktop apps will be retired over the few months to come.
Skype is urging its users to update to the latest Skype version. You can easily do this – simply access the Skype download website and get your installing software. After that, simply install and follow the setup wizard.
Opinion: We know a lot of you like sticking to certain software versions, but companies always reach the point in which they have to force you to upgrade. It seems that time is coming soon for Skype users, but you will also enjoy the new features.
