Google will update ChromeOS more often

Published

Google has announced that updates for ChromeOS used in Chromebooks will be released more often – once a month. In fact, the company decided to synchronize the release of updates for the Chrome browser and the operating system itself.

The new four-week update system will begin in November 2021, when ChromeOS version 96 is released. For convenience, so that the versions of the Chrome and ChromeOS browsers match, ChromeOS 95 will be skipped – instead, ChromeOS 96 will be released immediately.

Interestingly, for business users and educational institutions in which Chromebooks are massively used, a different kind of indulgence has been made – they will be able to use the stable version of the OS much longer than now – up to six months. This was done due to the fact that stability of work is a priority for these categories of users, and not new functions.

In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated massive departure of users to remote work and study, sales of Chromebooks in the world have increased like an avalanche. According to IDC, 13 million devices were sold in the first quarter of this year, compared to 2.8 million Chromebooks sold in the same period in 2020.

12 million kilometers without changing the battery with zero risk

This week, BYD said in an investor communication that BYD Blade’s state-of-the-art battery packs can be charged and discharged more than 3,000 times. This allows you to cover 1.2 million kilometers without changing batteries.

BYD previously said its new BYD Blade vehicle battery will be a game-changer and usher in a new era of safety and performance for the electric vehicle industry.

In last year’s ranking of global battery manufacturers, BYD’s total installed battery capacity in electric vehicles reached 26.3 GWh. This allowed BYD to take the fourth place in the world with a market share of 8.8%.

It is often said that there is not enough chips

Japan’s largest semiconductor makers, from Toshiba to Sony, have warned that a shortage of engineers is threatening the government’s efforts to revive the domestic chip industry.

The expected labor crisis comes as Japan works to increase investment in the semiconductor sector as part of efforts to bolster its economic security amid the chip shortage caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In an address to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry last month, the electronics industry group said that over the next few years, Japan has the best chance of regaining its position in the semiconductor market.

“It is often said that there is not enough chips, but most of all, engineers are missing.”  Japan's largest chip makers face shortage of specialists

The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Manufacturers Association said the sector’s success depends on attracting enough people to innovate and run chip factories. It is estimated that eight major manufacturers will need to hire about 35,000 engineers over the next 10 years to keep up with the pace of investment.

“It is often said that there is not enough chips, but most of all, there is not enough engineers,” said Hideki Wakabayashi, a professor at the University of Tokyo and head of the policy proposal task force at the JEITA Semiconductor Committee.

To support innovation and search for potential employees, Toshiba, Sony and other companies are collaborating with the best scientific departments across the country and investing additional resources in chip research and recruitment.
