Microsoft enlist reality TV stars to make unreal claims about Chromebooks

In the latest Scroogled ad, Microsoft enlists the Pawn Stars crew to help bash the Chromebook. Rather than go after a specific device, Microsoft is bashing the platform as a whole.

LG trademarks names for Chrome OS devices, but what are they?

LG, maker of the Nexus 4 and upcoming Nexus 5, may be getting a little more Google-centric. Reports now indicate that LG will be making a line of Chrome OS devices, and have trademarked names for them. While the filing suggests that they will simply be Chromebooks -- as we’re used to seeing -- it could also mean something new, and the resurgence of one Chrome product we’ve long since left behind.
