The Future Of Personal Computers



In an earlier post, we asked a question. "If cloud computing is about feeding computing capability to where you are, why do we still need personal computers to use cloud computing?". Sounds like double investment.. right?


Yes. It is true that we are in a transition phase to the new technology of cloud computing. There are devices available in the market today that allow us to use cloud services at a more affordable price point. We saw in a earlier post that cloud computing is a two way interactive process. So the new device should have a display surface and ways of sending input to the cloud software.

If You Have To Set Up a Cloud Computer, What Will You Consider?

We talked earlier about mail providers like Gmail. Let us take that as an example because most of us are familiar with Gmail. We know that millions of people around any country use Gmail service today. They all access the application that runs on a computer inside the cloud. During a typical day, it is easy to imagine lean periods of Gmail usage where only a handful of people are consuming Gmail services. It is equally easy to imagine a time of the day where hundreds of thousands of people (peak periods) could be simultaneously checking e-mail.
