The curved tube was a structural issue... creating flat tubes required the use of thicker glass, which at the time they didn't have the capacity to make. When the larger tube flat screens came out, many had front glass over 2 inches thick. My 'old' Sony 32 weighed 220lbs... and the centre of gravity was maybe 2 inches from the front... telling me the majority of that TV's weight was the front glass. The curve of the old tube is to withstand the vacuum forces... not to...
I have the patent for the word "slavish" , so please remove it from your article. Bwah!
I'm tired of donating $100 a year for 'upgrades' that don't really do much more, are no faster, don't fix any of the old bugs... etc etc.... For these types of incremental updates, I'd pay $25 to stay up to date. $80 for PS Elements is no deal... once it hits retail it will have at least that big a rebate sticker on the box. Oh well...
Cool! A laptop without a hinge between the keyboard and screen. Rule 1 when demoing a touch-screen interface... use the touch-screen interface...
I'm not sure the 'surge in demand' is the right phrase to use. Imagine how many iPads you'd sell for $99... but Apple would be taken to court for lost-leading if they did that...
There's never been room for 3 real competitors in the desktop world... I don't know if the mobile world is any different. There just always seems to be that odd 3rd step-child that never gets any traction... whether it is 'better' or not. Eventually, Apple will license iOS... when the margins in the hardware are too tight, and the App Store is making billions on its own.
It's an iMac that is skinny like an ipad... no optical drive, all SSD storage, and runs a multi-A(s) processor. Touch screen, and runs both iOS and OSX...
He might be correct... for another year or two... The whole "PC" paradigm is you need a big box on your desk because it has lots of power and lots of storage. Laptops have long been eroding that idea, but because they needed to run the same heavy-weight operating system, they never evolved past the PC. Where Apple went with iOS and the iPas/Phone/Touch is hardware beyond what had been stuffed into such a small package in terms of speed and storage, and created an OS...
So... basically you need to have your printer connected to the 'cloud' (internet) so you can hit PRINT on your device, which sends the raw data to 'the cloud', which then interprets the stream, converts it to a print stream, and sends it to the printer? You're still left with having to have a printer hooked up to the internet, capable of negotiating with 'the cloud', that can withstand unauthorized attacks... I'm not sure whose problem this aims to solve... but it...
Pot... meet kettle...
