Topic: PCMark Vantage "TV and Movies" suite fails   Go to last post
Posted: Tuesday, August 14, 2012 10:14:10 AM(UTC)

I've had the same MSI for two years and I always had problems with simple tasks like watching movies online. I can watch anything on youtube just fine but older sites like this one never worked on it and I had to use my desktop for them. Additionally, last month my charger died and it turns out the new one costs $25 (with the shipping)... Wow... I don't think I would pay more than $100 for the whole machine but what can I do...

Topic: Latest Mac OS X Lion Beta Includes iCloud, Apple’s Big Bet   Go to last post

The iCloud service definitely seems like a great step forward for Apple. It allows product integration, which is what everyone seeks. Very much the same reasons that many people switched from hotmail to gmail because of its ability to aggregate all of your emails into one location (eventually hotmail followed), the iCloud allows people to integrate their personal files to be used on multiple devices. The question is, is Apple's iCloud going to take down the other online storage services like it is doing to MobileMe? Or do you think one of the many services will be able to integrate itself to Apple devices in a way reminiscing the 'hijackers' that unlocked the iPhone to be used by other services other than AT&T? Time will tell the winner of this exciting leap forward!

One word: Price. If PC's can remain inexpensive, then there will definitely always be a market in developing countries. We pay more for the same computing power because we are paying for convenience. For countries like India and China, the factor can't be about convenience, but about the greatest computing power for the least amount of dollars due to the discrepancy between our two countries as far as cost of living goes. Since China's standard of living in the main cities is roughly $3k per capita per year, why would they pay $600 for an iPad when they can get twice as much computing power for that same $600 with a PC?
