i thought this bit of news about chrome in android limiting images downloads into mobile phones to save data usage, is quite interesting. if it detects a slow download, it will stop images from downloading, and requires u to specifically click to allow it. 

it will sway me to buying an android phone because it uses chrome to browse and it has this mode. 

data usage is a big factor in mobile phones with a sim plan. for eg,   the new mobile sim that talktalk is giving to us has only 200MB of data. and if that is exceeded u can bet they will charge the earth for it. i wont be using it as i dont have a smartphone, but if i do, it would be a big factor in deciding to buy an android phone.

another interesting post by chrome , about security. 

and here is news of a $149 chromebook.
