This is so stupid looking. I agree that it reminds me of the movie The Thing as it morphs into other things. I really hope that this isn't given final approval for creation. What would Jony Ive say about this? Tim Cooks taste is in his mouth.
When I typed "I would still like to own one..." I meant that I would like to own the computer and run GNU/Linux. I would not ever run Windoz. If this is so then Microsux really doesn't care about profit at their stores. The $229 price is what Dell charges for the Android version on their site. This would also give manufacturers another reason to dislike Microsux because they are undercutting them. What is the real cost of buying brand recognition and market share? Google...
   When I read this story I first thought that Microsux was finally willing to compete by getting off of its high horse. Then I read it was only for the lower priced machines. The lowest priced tablet with Windoz on the Dell site is $299. This must be totally about Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. ASUS is selling a Chromebox this month for $179 with the same internal parts as the $199 Acer Chromebook. HP has some Chromebooks that don't cost much more. Toshiba in March will...
I don't care how long Microsux has been around. They are irrelevant to me. They make junky clunky consumer software and that is that. I do believe Apple will continue to improve their software. They almost always do a good job. What I'm getting at is that other manufacturers are also making great things now. In the near future there will be tablets that do amazing things for much less than the price of a Apple device. As an example in computing I really don't need a ...
Look at the last category on the graph. It says Ultra-slim PC shipments. That number is going up. Are these things like the Mac Mini? ASUS has been making tiny XP machines for a while. HP just started selling a very small i7 equipped box that is perhaps as small as the Mini. It is for business customers only.   We've heard of Chromebooks for a while. Google also puts Chrome OS into desktop machines called Chromeboxes. ASUS will be offering one in March for only $179. It...
They don't count. They can only do good servers. Their consumer products have been crap since..... Well I can't say how long because I started with XP. I'm sure people who used their operating systems before that would be able to give a better opinion than I. It's funny. I don't even consider Microsux in any of my thoughts of future computing. They are irrelevant in my mind. They just don't figure into anything in the future.
This could be very bad news for Apple in the long run. With other manufacturers getting better at producing these things with better and better specifications and more operating systems getting better, it won't be long until there are other brands that are good enough. They won't be selling at the premium prices Apple demands. There is no doubt that Apple will improve their software when needed to remain a leader, but remember that they don't always lead. Remember how long...
This is exactly what I'm talking about. Apple has become a hypocritical company. They promote this ideal but don't actually follow this ideal.
Obviously to a Bitcoin user you don't understand how they work. Bitcoin should remain free and outside of governmental interference. The Federal Reserve must really hate it because it takes away their control. Bitcoins are every bit as real as electronic dollars. When you get your pay check is it real money? No. It is a slip of paper with numbers on it that must be given to a bank. If you have direct deposit from your employer is that real money? They just tell their bank...
Whatever happened to "Think Different"? I think Apple abandoned that a long time ago regarding the iPhone, iPod, and iPads by not allowing people to download and run whatever they want on the devices for which they paid. If you can't do what you want to do with the device you bought, then you really don't own it. Do you?   Apples new catch phrase is "Think Suppression".
