First, the ‘stick’—whether it be produced by Amazon , Roku or Google —replaced your cable box by providing online streaming to your TV, and now, Google’s latest dinky dongle offers to replace your home computer, by transforming your TV into a PC. The Chromebit plugs into your HDMI port, and according to Engadget crams in “a Rockchip 3288 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMC memory, a USB 2.0 port, WiFi 802.11 ac support, Bluetooth 4.0, a Smart Ready controller and an ARM Mali 760 quad-core GPU.” It even swivels around to hide out of sight to keep your display looking sleek, and, well, TV like. The device is still at the testing stage, but the first Chromebits will be produced by ASUS, and will be available later this year for under $100 + Google Chrome Via Engadget Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: chrome bit , chromebit , chromebook , computer , dongle , google chromebit , hdmi , new google device , operating system , personal computer , turn tv into chromebook , turn tv into computer , turn tv into pc , usb tv , use tv as computer monitor

On Sunday, legislators and environmentalists gathered at the Knesset, Israel’s national assembly in Jerusalem, to inaugurate the largest solar field of any parliament in the world (Germany’s Bundestag parliament building comes in second followed by Austria’s parliament).
