Chrome OS will finally run Android apps in the background

  Chrome OS will finally run Android apps in the background While it's no longer a novelty to run Android apps on your Chromebook, that doesn't mean they run well. There's no guarantee that Android Parallel Tasks will reach the stable Chrome OS 64, so you might not want to plan a purchase around the feature. With that said, it's hard to imagine Google leaving this out. This is a major step toward Android becoming fully integrated with Chrome OS, and arguably a step toward making Chrome OS behave like you'd expect if you're coming from a more conventional computing platform.

Formula 1’s independent tyre supplier Pirelli has quashed reports its new seven- tyre range will confuse fans , despite critics stating it will only make the sport more complicated to understand.

Brand new for 2018, the Pink hypersoft tire – named by fans following a social media survey – is the softest and therefore the fastest compound that Pirelli has ever made. The second-toughest tire in Pirelli ’s range is designed for the circuits that put the highest energy loadings through the tires, with

Formula 1’s independent tyre supplier Pirelli has quashed reports its new seven-tyre range will confuse fans, despite critics stating it will only make the sport more complicated to understand.

Pirelli unveiled two new dry-weather compounds to add to its ever-growing range at the end of last year, with a pink walled hyper-soft tyre and a blue walled super-hard tyre expanding the number of dry compound tyres to seven.

Despite complaints it will make races harder to follow, Pirelli’s sporting director Mario Isola insists the increased tyre range will not confuse fans but ‘spice up’ the racing with more flexibility on strategy and more pitstops.

Our man of the match: Burton Albion (A)

  Our man of the match: Burton Albion (A) Norwich’s miserable run of form continued at the Pirelli Stadium, as the Canaries played out a goalless draw with Burton Albion. Under pressure Daniel Farke now only has two wins in his last thirteen games, as Norwich’s promotion hopes slowly slip away from them. The German will be hoping to get more fans back on side with a victory over Millwall on New Years Day. In terms of the Burton game, Norwich struggled to fashion any sort of chance throughout the game. Mario Vrancic forced a save from veteran Stephen Bywater, but that was really the best of the bunch. The result leaves Norwich with the third worst goal record in the league, only notching 24 so far this term. This being a complete reversal from last season, where Norwich led the charts at the end of the season. Picking a man of the match from a poor performance is hard. However, we’re going to give it to Tom Trybull, who runs his heart out every game.

Pirelli : F1 fans won' t be confused by 2018 tyres . F1's official tyre supplier has added two new dry tyres to either end of its range for 2018, a super-hard tyre (marked with ice blue colours on the wall) and a hyper-soft (marked with pink).

“There are still three compounds at each event, so no changes compared to last year,” Isola .

“More colours, yes. [But] spectators are not so stupid not to understand three colours at each event.

“I know that there were some criticisms around this choice to increase the number of compounds. I believe that with the additional compounds we have more flexibility and the opportunity to make a better selection in order to have the all the three compounds suitable for the trace.”

“The target is to have a bit more degradation to try to target two [pit] stops and different strategies.”

It was suggested that Pirelli should rename each of the selected tyre compounds for each grand prix soft, medium and hard. Isola revealed this was taken into consideration but was rejected.

Some analysts are saying Amazon might do that again in 2018 with a purchase of US retail giant Target. Will that happen? We honestly wouldn’t be surprised.

Brand new for 2018, the Pink hypersoft tyre – named by fans following a social media survey – is the softest and therefore the fastest compound that Pirelli has ever made. It features orange markings: the traditional colour for the hardest tyres in Pirelli ’s range .

Formula One's sole tyre supplier is extending either end of its compound range next year, with the introduction of the

“We discussed that internally and we came to the conclusion that we are not giving the right message because it looks like we are using the same compound for each event,” he added.

“We want to explain to the spectators that in Monaco you need softer compounds and in Silverstone you need a harder compounds.”
