One device to rule them all
I’ve waited a long time for this. I want one box for all my data, computer and internet stuff. Doesn’t matter if I hook it to a TV, keyboard, lapdock, whatever. I want once device to rule them all that I can stick in my pocket. Then hook up to stuff as needed. The three players are Apple, Google and Microsoft. I dismiss Apple outright as they are useless to me. I like Google for the web and phone stuff. They suck at the software side of things, seriously, their documents suck. I like Microsoft for the file management and software type stuff. But they’re web-fu and phone stuff sucks. I picked up a windows phone once and crashed it in 2 seconds. I had a witness who called his boss to ask if I could blog it. The answer was no, btw. But I want one machine to do it all. It doesn’t sound all that hard to do.
Of course, this would kill the business of providing internet, phone, and TV to homes.
Update: Oh and also, windows might lose. It looks to me like Windows 8 is like someone took all this cool phone stuff and stuffed it into a bigger box.
Update 2: Amazon is a fourth player. They’ve wooed me thus far and maybe they will do that with this concept.
