  1. Late comment as usual. Busy day around these parts.

    I had to at least say this about tablets: They appear to be made for the cloud. There’s certainly not enough space to have very much on board. No thank you very much! I’m going to be a Die Hard and stick with notebooks and desktops until I can’t buy them any longer. Old geezer geek!

    • kstinman,
      I’ll be joining you in that, and I suspect that we will not be alone, exactly, but will be a very small minority.

      To my way of thinking, the client-server model is reasonably “doable’ in a managed network environment (aka “in house”) — which hardly describes the “world wide web”.

      Tablets, at least, today’s tablets, are “consume-er” devices. By that, I mean they are good for viewing/reading/watching/looking at (content provided by others). Which is how a lot of people spend their time online, and what they use their machines for.
      (Combining a tablet with a keyboard equipped “dock” makes them more of a “produce-er” device.)

      Today, I see tablets, and “cloud computing”, as supplements to our (computing/online) lives and not as – the media hype likes to suggest – replacements for Desktop PC’s. But who knows how a few years’ worth of progress/development might change that point of view..? (It is still fledgling tech..)
