Google(s goog) released Chrome OS version 33 this week, bringing some new features to Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. And it looks like a few new devices are in the works thanks to a new Intel(s intc) Haswell board working with Chrome OS and a pre-order page for a pair of Samsung Chromebook 2 devices that may have gone live a bit too early. Vastly improved Bluetooth support is coming to Chrome OS and Plex is now Chromecastic!
