Austin Modine provides the latest news on Intel’s updated Atom processor chips.

“The chip maker’s successor to the near-ubiquitous netbook chip, the N270, is landing in the hands of laptop makers well before the anticipated mid-2009 release. While the new single-core N280 only has a tiny boost of clock speed over the N270, a more noticeable improvement will come from its paring with Intel’s new GN40 chipset and integrated graphics. Unlike previous Atom chips, the GN40 chipset includes hardware-based high-definition video decoders allowing for 720 HD playback.”

Derek Kerton offers some insight into Google’s new Latitude location service for handsets and notebooks.

“Google’s entry signals a tipping point for tracking, as its brand penetration and price will push this type of service into many more handsets. Since Latitude also works on laptops, we can expect much better targeted location-aware advertising on our laptop Google searches, too… whether that impresses you or creeps you out. In the long run, this can be quite good for competitors in the market who can successfully incorporate advanced features worth paying for.”
