[QUOTE=debro;2690015]I disagree with the above. Tablets are the norm, and eventually they will be in competition.[/QUOTE]
Really and where did that info come from? The norm…remember what is “Norm” isn’t never the same from the same person.
[QUOTE=debro;2690015]It’s true at the moment, that they are useless for any serious work, but advances in interfaces & connectivity will mean that simply, people will be able to carry their work with them and interface it to something larger, and control it differently.[/QUOTE]
Actually they aren’t good for serious work…try graphics editing and Adobe CS6 and math equation computation and CAD work on tablets not going to happen that requires alot of computing resources of which only laptops and desktop can muster to do and have to expand when needed.
[QUOTE=debro;2690015]Tablets in their current forms are tinker toys, but with some intelligent design, can be very usefully deployed as interfaces to complex devices, lighting systems, audio systems, security systems, servers and etc. I use my phone to control my xbmc on a htpc and Android xbmc in different rooms.[/QUOTE]
Security…you got to be kidding so someone just has to steal your tablet and all your security is in the power of the hacker hand…now that is really security…
[QUOTE=debro;2690015]Tablets are currently very ill equipped to do any useful creative work. They’re still consumption devices … But that’s okay. Read/write - consume/create - 95/5.[/QUOTE]
This is a double standard here you talked about how is it they are the norm and now your saying are ill equipped so which is it? Little hypocrizie here don’t you think.
[QUOTE=sb010301;2690177]I can see you are just one of those people who don’t understand d Microsoft is growing. Sorry they won’t go away from the start screen UI. Sorry, No [/QUOTE]
Seems like you missed the point and that is why Apple is still here to stay…and if posed correctly will overtake the M$ O/S domination. M$ isn’t growing by any leaps or bound from where I stand more like they are alienating their base users to go to MAC that is to obvious and simple to see.
