WSJ: Google Plans To Merge Chrome OS Into Android, Form Single New OS In 2017 [Update]

A debate has waged since Chrome OS started appearing on Chromebooks. It can be summed up as: This is nice Google, but why don't you combine it with Android? Well, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, it looks like Google is getting ready to do just that.

Now developers will have more control. Google is giving them the ability to control when an update goes live. Those that opt for timed publishing will still have to have their apps processed, but after that, sending the goods out to everyone is simply a matter of pressing the Go live button.

Motorola has officially announced the Moto X Force, the international version of the DROID Turbo 2 that became available from Verizon Wireless earlier today. You might remember it by its codename, Bounce.
