The Chrome Show: In-store invasion, exploit controls your camera and VP9

ChromeShow logo

Not even a much-needed vacation can stop the GigaOM Chrome Show from reaching you each week. On today’s show, we take a break from the Blackjack table in Vegas to talk about Google’s upcoming Chromebook push into retail stores, give you a few updates on some Chromebook hardware, discuss a Flash exploit that takes over your computer’s camera, and how VP9 could potentially make mobile video much better.
