Re: Microsoft, Intel Join Tech Giants In PC Push
It's interesting to see these rivals cooperating, but they're beating a dead horse. Those of us (like me) who need a PC and do all of our work on the PC already know it. And, with the advent of cloud computing, the machine we use is becoming less and less relevant all the time, as long it runs the planet-wide standard of Windows. I for one have yet to see what good going to the expense of upgrading to Windows 8.1 or 10 will do for me; the only reason I updated to Windows 7.0 is because Microsoft won't support XP anymore, not because the online apps I use require it.
Sooner or later, a cheap version of Google Glass will be available to supplant monitors, and then all that most of us will need is a compute stick or a plug computer. Only developers and graphic artists will need full-blown PC's. Then the PC will ride off into the sunset.
