The Chromebook is expected to replace the Chromebook Pixel and should keep the Pixel branding, although other details are pretty scarce. That could be related to this device, but we won't know for sure until Google announces something.
The new license is Google's attempt to improve the software part of the equation to get big companies to buy more Chromebooks.
Today's report also claims that Google is prepping a mini version of the Google Home.
Katee Sackhoff & Emily Bett Rickards In Flash Episode #4.5
Katee Sackhoff has been cast as Amunet Black/Blacksmith for the CW's The Flash , according to Entertainment Weekly . Since Blacksmith will be a recurring character, it'll be interesting to see what role she fulfills in the season.
Back in 2015, Google was busy discontinuing the Chromebook Pixel 2 and we assumed that was all she wrote for the Mountain View-based firm's in-house laptop endeavours. Chromebooks run Google's Chrome OS operating system, which it has tried to market to schools as low-priced alternatives to Windows and Mac devices.
We have to stress that there is no confirmation that the alleged new Chromebook Pixel is Bison, since they could be two separate projects.
If Android Police is to be believed, Google is preparing a new Chromebook Pixel, which will make its debut this autumn. Internals are less definite with rumours of 32 or 128GB of storage and either 8GB or 16GB of RAM - it's possible two configs were planned. Amazon is also offering a $20 discount for consumers who buy three Echo Dots, so it stands to reason Google, too, wants consumers to buy in bulk and that may now be cost-prohibitive with Google Home's $129 price point.
A smaller, cheaper update would certainly be a welcome development, if Amazon's success with its Echo Dot is any indicator.
