    Ms's Fatal error -- Not necessary to have multiple devices


    Hi there
    read this

    Microsoft 'fundamentally against' carrying both tablet and laptop | News | TechRadar

    I would fundamentally disagree with the premise of the article.

    You DO need different devices depending on what you are doing.

    I'm not going to make a phone call from a public spot using a laptop --that's what I've got a PHONE for even if the computer could do it.

    A hybrid device could work but then it could suffer the drawbacks of doing things OK but nothing best for the device.

    Tablet needs to be light and simple, laptop needs mouse, keyboard and decent processing power.

    Phone needs to be ---well a PHONE !!.

    Cheers

    Well, speaking for myself, while I may buy a cheapish 7" tablet for
    convenience when travelling, neither my laptops nor my desktop are
    going anywhere in the foreseeable future.

    And when they do, it'll be my choice, not Microsoft's or anyone else's.

    And I really couldn't care less about this pointless obsession with
    one all-encompassing OS.

    Not gonna happen in this household.

    Hi there
    In THIS household

    Windows 2003 server (VM)
    XP Pro SP3 (Eng ver) VM
    XP Pro SP3 (Icelandic ver ) VM
    W7 Ultimate X-64 (3 or 4 clients)
    W8 Enterprise X-64 (Test machine)
    SUSE 12.2 X-64 (Linux) Server and Internet gateway provider
    W2012 Server -- Test box
    VMWARE eSXI White Box.

    so ONE device isn't going to do this for me.


    (and I haven't even STARTED on Mobile phones / network multimedia streaming yet).

    Cheers

    That is what Microsoft believes in jimbo, a phone and a tablet PC should be all that you would need.

    For me though, that's a desktop PC and a Windows Phone for now, until the Surface Pro comes out.

    It seems they believe we are all complete idiots.

    We will see how many swallow the marketing guff and do what a big corporation wants them to do.

    We already have people on the net posting absurd comments like "you must change".

    They don't seem to understand a corporation wants people to do something which benefits that corporation.

    In what sense "must" people go along with what a corporation wants?

    Complete tosh.

    Hi Jimbo, made me genuinely laff.

    Isn't that what Hitler said of the French Resistance in WWII?

    I don't go for the all in one approach either. While I "could" read a book on my tablet, it's not going to happen. I'm going to use my Kindle because it goes weeks and weeks and weeks on a charge. Best device for the job, not all in one device that only does it somewhat well.
