Good point!
Posted: 12 September 2013

This article makes a good point. 5 years from now the entry price point of no-name brand tablets should be quite negligible and make for an attractive game changer. I think its irrelevant if its Walmart, Tesco or Amazon, someone is going to take the risk and seize the opportunity.

The final nail in the commoditization of computers and the digitization of retailing
Dateline: 11 June 2018
Walmart and Tesco have long been leaders in wringing the last drop from shoppers' wallets through digital services. Walmart tell us that today almost 30% of their revenues, and more than half their profits, originate from online services, including home-shopping, insurance, phones, banking, music, movies and books. Now, much to the final dismay of Apple, Samsung and Lenovo, they are giving ...

European agency for air quality seeks to introduce oxygen tax
Dateline: 28 April 2023
The EU Climate Control Agency (CCA), known colloquially as the 'carbon police', has introduced proposals to tax the very air we breathe. Two decades of lower than expected global warming has been a brief respite, but carbon concentrations have continued to rise alarmingly. "It's clear that carbon taxes and emissions trading have not worked," says Executive Director Jacqueline McGlade. "The ...

I can see many limitations with Apple in the corporate space: Their software platform (smartphones & tablets) are almost to impossible to integrate properly into a corporate environment, so can certainly agree with your assessment.
But don’t think that Microsoft is going to cut it either. Having fallen asleep behind the wheel years ago, companies like Google are already eating into their ...

Apple in decline as consumers, and businesses, vote with their wallets
Dateline: 7 November 2016
The votes are in, and there's a new winner in the global race to be the biggest and best tech company. And the winner is Microsoft! Just four years ago, Apple was king of the heap, selling millions of (Chinese made) devices a month, and being rated as the world's most valuable company, and tech brand. Now it's Microsoft's turn to shine, as Apple stumbles. Surprisingly, tech upstarts who ...
Intel outside?

With all these shifts rapidly taking place in this industry, I wonder where “Moore’s Intel” is heading. They seem to have already almost fallen asleep at the wheel when it came to customer demand for low powered devices and focused too much on higher powered server and notebook technology. Now with the cloud and mobile devices…. their strategy seems to be too little too late. Their one real ...

MindBullet logo MOORE'S LAW COMES TO AN END
High performance computing is embedded everywhere and virtually free
Dateline: 22 September 2022
Moore's Law says, in essence, that computer processors become twice as powerful, and half the price, approximately every two years. Over time that sort of progression is exponential, and should eventually taper off. Well, Moore's Law is petering out. Not because of technical barriers, but because, at these low prices, there's not much incentive to invest to keep innovating! Focused on ...

I don't think the electric car is at all dead. In reality I think all we are seeing is a shift in how this technology will be marketed & sold. Until now its been the cost and problems associated with charging the batteries that has been holding this technology back. But already new players are coming to market where the customer buys the car but NOT the battery. Carlos Ghosn (of Renault ...

MindBullet logo WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR?
Despite the hype, the electric car has failed, again, to be a commercial success. Who is to blame?
Dateline: 8 July 2014
Remember the very first electric car, the EV1? They made a movie about its demise, and blamed the oil companies. Well, it's happened again. The electric car is a dud. The few models that made it onto the market are fighting for survival and the only successful 'electric' cars are actually hybrids, like the Prius. GM put a lot of faith, hope and money behind the Volt, but couldn't convince ...

Now that the bio-replicator is a reality, it is easy to transfer biological fragments from place to place - electronically! In fact, you can send the code for a whole micro-organism to a lab for culture, by email. It sounds like science fiction, but Craig Venter and his team have built a system that acts like a biological email service. You feed a prepared sample of say, a flu virus, into a ...
IBM EYE-EYE PAD
Posted: 5 August 2010

Interesting article yet seriously doubt that the IBM 3D print partner would be HP. Ten years from now it will far more likely be a company like Samsung!
HP lost its vision a long time ago.... 10 years from now after the bean counters would have finally done their job destroying any innovation, it will probably be merged with Sun Microsystems, a division of Oracle Corporation ;) ...

From designer straight to desk-top manufacturing at the point of usage
Dateline: 17 June 2020
Over the past two decades we have become used to our consumer electronics being made in Asia. Even though there are ever-more disturbing reports of inhuman conditions in Asian factories, including the latest suicides and murders to cover up corrupt practices, companies such as Apple have had no alternative to producing in these low-wage economies. Yesterday, IBM announced its first venture ...
