Windows 7: New Microsoft VP consigns the PC to irrelevance

I totally agree that a print looks much, much better than a small digital display but that wasn't my point. The point is a digital frame is more portable than a bunch of prints in an album. I could easily carry a digital frame in my purse but not an album with several hundred photos. At home or in a studio, prints are the best way to go but, when away from home or a studio, a digital frame will allow one to show hundreds of photos without needing a truck to lug around albums with the same number of prints. One can always carry around a few prints as samples of overall quality. As I said, resolution isn't the only criteria to judge photography.

I've made lots of nice prints for hanging but you only have so much wall space. I don't do my own printing anymore and prefer the quality of labs wet printing. As to photo albums they tend to stay in cupboards. The display device I'm talking about is this
GALAXY Note 10.1 2014 Edition - OVERVIEW | SAMSUNG
The 10.1in 2560x1600 IPS screen gives approximately 300ppi. It takes up to a 64GB SD card. That's what I call an electronic photo album. I'm not sure what the current software is available for this device but in principle you could store every photo you and your family has ever or will ever take and have them indexed to produce dynamic albums.

Hi there

OK that's a different device - I though you were talking about those HIDEOUS desk thingy's displaying 4 X 6's or smaller (post card size).

I agree Lab wet printing is really great -- remember the old "Cibachromes" !! .

Question - Does that Samsung have facilities for connecting to a commercial grade / office grade projector at decent hi rez video. I could be interested if it does -- I've resisted "Generic Tablets" so far.

Cheers

Returning to the original Thread:

Look, we are Microsoft. We rule. We bought this Nokia thing. You have to use it as we say it should be used. Buy it, get on with it! Bah!

Well, there goes my hopes for Windows 9 and MS possibly redeeming itself in the PC world.

In the next couple of generations maybe the users' brains will be the OS with the computer following telepathic commands. The interface will be all touch with two hands and the brain and computer becomes one entity while connected.

Users lay both hands on the neural interface pad and the two join with the display being one's own eyes and can switch to a holographic 3D projection. See Asimov's "Prelude to Foundation"

Wow...the more M$ talks the more I hope someone comes up with a linux distro that can run all the programs/games I need so I can kiss Windows goodbye...heck right now I still rock Windows 7 because 8 and 8.1 are just to disappointing with the tablet interface.

I think we are discussing not very much of importance. This guy was CEO of Nokia and I'm sure he was part of the deal for Microsoft to buy Nokia. So, he came with Nokia and they created the position of VP for devices for him. Now, how much credibility do you suppose he has inside or outside the organization? I suspect very little. Now, I believe you have to be an idiot to say the vast majority of people do not have nor will they ever have a PC. It sounds to me like something someone who was the head of a perfectly good company and then ran it into the ground would say. He isn't the voice of Microsoft. I think one of the devices Microsoft should put him in charge of is a mechanical Gag that he is required to wear.
