What is Chrome?

Google Chrome, developed and controlled by Google, may refer to either the web browser or the OS that uses the latter web browser as its GUI. Chrome OS is intended for laptops (not intended for desktops), which Google markets under the name Chromebook. Just like Google's portable OS, Android, it is also based on Linux.

Chrome OS 21.0.1172 Aura Dev

Although the OS is open source, users only have access to personal files and no access to system files, especially the kernel. Chrome OS mostly runs web applications making it basically a thin-client. — except for multimedia with several (if not all) codecs, camera and daemons.

Running Chrome OS (stable channel only) demands the user to completely trust Google as it controls all aspects of the OS including and perhaps not limited to updates, which is perfect for users. As a matter of fact, all applications are only accessible through the Chrome Web Store and there is little to no risk of viruses or other malware.

As of version 53 of the OS released on September 2016 (beta channel for many current systems), Google Chrome can run a beta version of Google Play, which allows users install and run Android apps.

Installing Chrome OS:

There is no OS installation. In case of extreme errors, there is a local utility that resets the system to factory specifications from an on-board ROM chip called POWERWASH. Another alternative only when suggested by the Chromebook vendor is to re-store the OS creating a recovery USB flash drive and booting from it. In the latter scenario, you need to contact the vendor for specific instructions.

On a side note, I never stop thinking and processing information all around me. As such, one of the subjects that attracts me most (aside from technology and music) is human behavior, not limited to psychology and ethos of the individual and masses. Hence I usually read, study and write essays of my own. From all possible authors in this field, some of my favorites are (in order of interest) Nietzsche, Levinas and Kant. As such, I have published two science fiction books, in which I include my opinion on religion, sociology, psychology, politics, manipulation of the masses, media, science and various technologies.

In Under the Thelian Sky, mankind did not originate on Earth, but rather on Mars. When Mars could no longer sustain life, mankind had to escape and colonized Earth. Many years later, a study was written about the survival of mankind in Mars and its struggle in Earth led by Doctor Ajidan Edejem. We proved to be a species that has survived wars, slavery and other forms of abuse. All the while, the government controlled by "them" wants to keep everything quiet and even kill him for telling others about the unavoidable doom. Years before the extinction of life in Mars, the Thelian society was perfect, yet corrupted. Life was easy, yet difficult if you were different. For every good person, like Ahila Keinj who found peace in The Faith, there were many willing to destroy it all for gain while "they" controlled the fate of many. At the end, an outsider simply known as Operative Logger 9C56 tries to fight "them" and stop "their" manipulation of history and mankind.

You can get Under the Thelian Sky exclusively at Amazon — available on print (ISBN 9781494232283) and e-book (ASIN B00GTQBY04).

In The Daydreamer, Robert James is a normal New Yorker who wakes up one morning unsure what had happened in his life. He is accused of killing the woman he has always loved, but he remembers three possible realities. Which reality could be true? Has he dreamed these realities, seen this events or taken part of these strange acts? Is he a killer or is he being framed? Perhaps he knows the killer better than anyone else without realizing it.
