Google and Asus Team Up with Chromebit; Turns Any Monitor Into a Computer for $85

Nov 17, 2015 - 3:30 PM - by dgstorm

As long as your monitor or TV has an HDMI input, the new Chromebit from Google and Asus will let you convert it into a fully functioning "Chrome-based" computer. It's not quite ready for retail, but it is coming soon. When it does land, it will come to Amazon, Fryís and Newegg in the US. It will also become available in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the UK.

The Chromebit will only cost $85 USD and here are its full specs:
  • Rockchip RK3288-C with Mali T764 graphics
  • 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM
  • Dual-band 2◊2 WiFi AC
  • HDMI-out, 1x USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • 123 x 31 x 17mm
  • 75g
  • Chrome OS

The little conversion dongle does require a power outlet and will not power through USB, so there is one caveat. Despite that, this could be a handy little device for the right user(s). It comes in a variety of colors (including what you see in the image above as well as black). It will even let you watch various TV shows from Google Play, Netflix or Hulu, just like any other Chrome OS device.

We will keep an eye out and let you folks know when it becomes available.

Security Vulnerability In Chrome For Android Discovered

UberGizmo: Security Vulnerability In Chrome For Android Discovered

As much as developers try to make their apps as secure as possible, from time to time there will be flaws discovered. Sometimes these flaws arenít particularly serious, but sometimes they can be pretty bad. Recently during the PacSec conference in Tokyo, Qihoo 360 developer Guang Gong discovered a particularly nasty vulnerability in Chrome for Android.

Gong reportedly worked the exploit for about 3 months and basically what happened is that the vulnerability targets the appís JavaScript engine. From there, all the hacker would need to do is direct the user to a website that can exploit the vulnerability and the JavaScript hack will do the rest of the work.

This includes the ability to install apps onto the userís phone completely without their knowledge. Gong demonstrated the vulnerability to a Google representative who saw it in action. Thanks to his discovery, Gong has since been rewarded with a trip to Vancouver for the CanSecWest Applied Security Conference and where he will also be able to enjoy a ski trip.

As for the vulnerability itself, it is contained only to the app, so for those worried about it being a bigger and system-wide issue like Stagefright, you can rest assured that itís not. Details of how to work the exploit were naturally unpublished so there is a good chance that it might not even be in the wild yet, so hopefully Google will push out an update soon before someone else figures it out.
