Google It's turning out to be a bit of a crazy week for cool new products, isn't it? We already got Ubuntu Touch Preview for phones and tablets, then we got the new PlayStation 4 yesterday, and today Google surprised us all by launching the Chromebook Pixel. Google's first laptop appears to be a stunning machine - just don't ask who the hell it's for.

"No. Studios are shooting in 16:9, and when not shooting in 16:9, they are shooting in freaking 21:9. How many of you have seen a 21:9 movie played on a 4:3 screen? Let me tell you, 16:9 on 4:3 is tolerable, but 21:9 on 4:3 is ridiculous."

A computer is not a cinema. If I use my computer for tall-screen-suited tasks 1800 hours a year and watching movies about 4 hours a year it makes no sense to axe the top and bottom part of my monitor just so I can have no black bars for those 4 hours.
