The all new Google Chrome Web browser has now became the most popular app in both the Apple IOS and MAC OS app stores but many users of the new MacBook Air are complaining of freezing and crashing of their computers which according to them is because of the newly launched Chrome browser.
It is now confirmed from Google side that Chrome browser is responsible for this unstable behaviour of new MacBook Air. Not only this, Google also confirms that it is limited to new MacBook Air only and other MacBooks are not effected by this bug. This effects only those MacBooks which are running on latest Intel Ivy bridge CPU with Intel HD 4000 graphic chips. It is mainly due to graphic leak problem as explained by Google which effects only Intel HD 4000 based CPU’s only.
In an interview to Gizmodo, Google employee said that they have already filed for the bug “Kernel Panic Trigger” with the Apple because according to them it is not possible for an application to cause this type of problem. Bug number assigned to this problem is 11762608.
To solve this problem on temporary basis, Google disables the GPU Acceleration feature on new MacBook Air via an automatic update.
Google Chrome has now become the most popular application on both Apple IOS and MAC app stores of US, India and some other countries.
This happens just few hours after Google announced the availability of Chrome Web browser for MAC OS and IOS devices on the second day of their developers conference.
This happens in spite of the fact that Google officially accepts that Google Chrome is responsible for the crashing of MAC OS based MacBooks.
Google Chrome as you already know is one of the most popular web browser for Windows OS but it has no presents in the Apple world and hence for IOS and MAC operating systems there is one browser and that is Apple Safari.
But Google want to finish this monopoly of Apple Safari and has recently announced the release of Chrome web browser for IOS and MAC operating systems from Apple at their annual developer conference.
Even after the launch of Google Chrome for Apple’s OS , Safari will remain as the default web browser and Chrome has to rely on Safari for its core working.
One of the main feature this new Chrome web browser is the ability to sync the web data of the browser across multiple Apple OS devices which includes Macbooks, iPhone and iPad. This means that if you leave your web browsing in your MacBook at your home than you can resume the same session on your iPhone’s Chrome browser in your office without typing or remembering the websites which you want to visit.
Google not only launched Chrome web browser for Apple OS but also announced the availability of Google Drive for Apple IOS and MAC operating systems in order to compete with Apple’s and Microsoft’s cloud services. Google Drive is similar to already available online storage services such as Dropbox, Box and SkyDrive which allows users to store files on the company’s servers and the same files will be available for access through any Internet connected device.
Samsung India e store is now taking pre orders for the upcoming Android based projector smartphone Galaxy Beam. Galaxy Beam is the Samsung’s first projector phone and it will be interesting to get a hands on review of this new upcoming smartphone. The pre order price is kept at Rs. 29,900 which i think is quite high because the core specs of this phone are in no way better than Galaxy S3 or Sony Xperia S which are also available in this same price range.
Projector on this phone is one of its main feature. It will be able to project videos and photos on big screens up to 50 inch. Other specs are listed below:
||1 GHz Dual Core
||4 inch TFT (WVGA)

If you are a computer geek than you must be observing that there are vast variety of tablet computers available in market today ranging from Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 50,000. Cheap tablets are basically launched to replace laptops and netbooks as they are usually more expensive than low end tablets. Laptops usually offer more specs but tablet offers more portability and battery life.
To compete with the low end tablets like Micromax Funbook, ACi launched a Rs 5,000 laptop in India. Well it cannot be called a laptop instead it is more resembled to a netbook than to a notebook but ACi is marketing it as a Laptop or Notebook. Here i am attaching the image of this netbook.
Well from the look it is definitely looks like it is made up of cheap quality but what more can be expected at this price range. You are getting a laptop which can run Windows XP flawlessly.
It is definitely a weak laptop as far as performance is concerned. Following are the specs of this baby:
||VIA CPU and Motherboard
Can be upgraded to 1 GB
||1024 X 768
Can be upgraded to 32 GB
||USB 2.0 x 2
