Chromebooks have lowered the price of admission for owning a laptop. Though many Chromebook owners are content to funnel all of their personal computing through a web browser, not everyone wants to sacrifice the native apps that platforms like Windows and Mac OS X can provide. The Chrome OS platform, however, just took another step forward in becoming a viable desktop alternative, with the addition of new browser apps that, well, no longer look the part.  Read More

However, an unexpected result also eventually transpired: shipping containers became recognized as an attractive building material by many architects. Gizmag gives a nod to ten of our favorite uses of shipping containers in architecture.  Read More

Trained dogs can do a lot of things – they can locate victims at disaster sites, sniff out drugs or explosives, and subdue criminals. One thing that they can’t do in all situations, however, is hear commands made by their handlers. That’s why scientists at Alabama’s Auburn University have created a control system to guide them.  Read More
