Personal computer prediction please

Postby gregzeng on Tue Mar 22, 2011 5:24 am

Could we have a competition from members, to estimate the death off various components of the personal computer. "Death" here means that no new sales of computer systems are available for export on the personal computer component.

Already dead: Centronic printer interface, USB1, SCSI, ESDI, floppy disks, ...

Soon to die: Apple operating systems, Windows operating systems, all non-Engish languages, CDs, USB2, wired keyboards, hardware keyboards, wired mouses, hardware mouses, CFL LCD displays, LED-lit displays, silicon-based displays, DVDs, ...

The winner in each category area might get a prize: the last produced unit of the personal computer system to ever be made by any international-selling manufacturer on the planet.

Having this competition could raising $$$ advertising for you, but I know you are too $$ rich for that. Since I'm $$-poor, perhaps I could manage your advertising- prize-giving department. Under strict legally enforcible contract specifications.

DVDs are already dying. Blu-rays have replaced them. Holographic Versitile Discs will replace blu-rays.

Mind Control Interface is the next interface revolution. Think it and it happens on screen. No middleman mouse or keyboard. Think how much fast you could work. As fast as your mind and processor will allow!

Computers will be portless, like many tabs. Wireless HDMI coming soon.

HVD may never happen, broadband speeds and streamable quality video is growing incredibly fast. I can stream 1080p YouTube effortlessly.

I can't stream 1080p yet. Only 720p and I have broadband cable. I live in NY.
