Computer Industry is in trouble

Posted 01-08-2012 at 03:55 PM by MystikMitch

I have settled for kde debian on my other machine. I'm however worried more about another topic. http://www.amazon.com/Future-Interne...N%3D0300124872

I believe this is to be true even though I have not read the book and only the description. http://carpetbomberz.com/2011/12/19/the-pc-is-dead/

This guy makes perfect sense I must admit I own a smartphone and a mini notebook. I feel those objects especially the smartphone is way too restrictive. I can go out and replace any computer part to my fit. The smartphone however can't be really upgraded inside and the mini notebook is nice and all but really not expandable or freeform. The modern ipads and list goes on in my view are also extremely limited. We are loosing our ability to control our devices and they are soon going to control us. I don't mean in a paranoid fashion but rather that our technology will be only allowed to do what the creator of the device has allowed us. No more none brand name put your own computer together either.

Add to that cloud computing strips more rights in my opinion. Imagine if you are an inventor/ creator and now your ideas are in the cloud! You can't but a hard drive in 2020 as you are not a major cloud storage provider. You can't have things locally unless you go back to paper and pen. Now add that to security issues and mistrust of the cloud computing.

    You can't unless the majority of the people go against it [not buy into it]. I just posted my thoughts, concerns and feelings on this in my personal blog here. I actually double posted [by mistake trying to append this entry]a more longer entry but since have deleted it. First it was a double post and also had bit more of my thoughts that I grew a bit fearful because the way I see it I believe is true.

    That is why I quit using apple products.
    And the " cloud" has made me fearful ever since i first started reading about it over s year ago. Scary times ahead.
