Sounds like a moron to me...

one co worker spends atleast 300.00 a month on the phone and apps

I just think that is way outrageous ,I mean seriously is it really that crucial to look at facebook or myspace instead of just waiting till later

what are you missing ?

That is why people are getting hurt killed and other things cause there eyes are glued to a mini screen instead of watching where you're going
Agree with this one Solar I get sick of them playing with these damn things at every opportunity and worse when it interferes with the general flow of work. I work in health and well it's bad enough at meal breaks watching and listening to this garbage going on let alone when you find them with these devices when they are supposed to be working.

Personally I reckon the whole thing is just about the most cynical ploy at making money there could be - as for those with these wretched things well being called brain dead would be kind.

As Boasttree pointed out re power production are we going to stop burning coal, oil, and gas to save the planet - DREAMING!!

We have a carbon tax out here coming out soon - now if that is not a blatantly cynical revenue raising exercise then I'll eat my PC's (5) so better get out the ulcer meds eh!! Plus I don't see other countries doing the same thing even though they tell us we are per capita the greatest producers of CO2 in the world.

Sorry mod bit off track there.

How does one get "clarity" viewing a stamp-size display with rice-grain sized keys on a touch screen?

Agree

Thats really hitting on the point Britton we are all not teen to twenty somethings some of us cataracts and the like ? arthritic fingers.

Look the whole thing is a bit of a ruddy joke as I said another sad and very cynical ploy at making money out of the immature, inane, and moronic sections of our society.

Hey how about going to a movie theatre and watching it on a 32" screen - wouldn't that be a barrel of laughs.

If it wasn't so ludicrous it would be laughable cos I reckon they are having a laugh at us and laughing all the way to the bank!!

I can't imagine my life without a PC, though I believe that a desktop PC for me is almost dead as I like to use my PC also when I am out, but I am sure for many its still a good option. I believe the article is a marketing for Mac computers, the drop down of sales of PC is primarily because of some people don't need to upgrade to a new model.

The man's an artist. It could mean he's on psychedelics.

Exactly. Its quite the laugh really. Focus and clarity can't come from a smaller package. Its all the fanboys runnin amock.

Like all things, a newer, better thing will come out and people will amass around it. I don't mind the cool toy, but to see these disciples of the Macness getting the best thing first just wears one down. Why do people say stuff like this?

In all fairness, the PC market could do better if they tried, but they are content to make the money they are making now instead of rapid development. Supply and demand, right? Right now, people seem to talk more about those dinky phones, so naturally thats where the big man goes to pocket your money. Hype goes farther than you know, and so does peer pressure. Soooooo, wheres your smartphone at?

I just thought of something, if in the future crap goes to the cloud, how in the hell are we supposed to print documents? Do we have to wait in line at a local Kinko's and figure whose document is whose?
