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.
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.
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-?
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.
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.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that donít. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
