Gaga is a Google Chrome fan
So the burning tech question of the day is what web browser does pop star, turned social networking sensation Lady Gaga prefer. Is it Safari? Firefox? IE? Well no actually.

Google excludes movie-loving handset rooters
If you got bored waiting for your network to provide an Android update and took matters into your own hands then you're unlikely to be able to take advantage of Google's new movie rental service for Android.

Apple now holds the rights to the Thunderbolt name and any other manufacturer that wants to use it will have to call it something else.
