It is a good idea, Cabe. It's especially good given the mammoth shift to mobile devices. The mobile device wouldn't need huge processing capabilities. It would just need to be a terminal like the old days when the terminal accessed mainframes.
I hate to be that guy who says, "I came up with that idea years ago." But, I did, about 10 years ago. I was planning on developing the idea or concept for my master's degree. However, I have put the concept on the back burner for a while now. Aside from my initial designs and work on a cloudOS, I have not found anyone else working on the idea. I wouldn't be surprised if it will happen in the near future by countless people.
It is an extension of the remote terminal concept. So, it doesn't take a genius to give it a shot again.
I wouldn't even be mad if I see someone come out with it, before I return to the concept myself. Progress is more important than accolades.
Do you see the irony of the 30 year technology cycle-? In 1980, massive room-sized computer "Main-Frames" functioned as the CPU (central processing, literally). If you had a "Computer" you really had only a "Computer-Terminal". I did have one in my dorm room and it was really just a dumb terminal connected via a modem. No problem in guaranteeing that you were always running the latest of everything. No OS to load. No Apps to load. Oddly similar to today's cutting edge practices of Cloud Computing. Ironically funny, isn't it-?
Now let's move the OS to the cloud as well. TransOS from the University of Beijing has shown that it is possible. If the bandwidth is there, computing/graphical power will be constantly upgraded, staying current will be a thought of the past. Like Upverter, everything in one spot.
You can't beat free for a good deal on this cloud software. Even the private versions are quite inexpensive. The collaborative aspects are good as well. The cloud approach to software continues to offer good deals.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
