Sometimes those kinds of things are depressing. I can think of lots of ways to make money aiming forward like that, but they simply take too much to get started. Sigh...

I'm curious if there will still be many traditional desktop computers in use in ten years.

...This 24" monitor is starting to feel squeezed.
...Maybe a 42" would be better.
...I'll need to get a job.
...Suddenly this 24-incher feels just right.

I don't think it's chopped off: I believe you just have to scroll horizontally to see the full image.

Good question.

What could be a better form factor? You still need a large monitor to get real work done. More complex work requires more monitors even.

I have a hard time imagining something that could replace the desktop that quickly.

Now, if things could be miniaturized nicely, then "displayper" would be the limiting size. Right now I think size and weight is the limiting factor. A 24" tablet? Hmmm...

By 2020 we will have an internet controlled by police and corporations. Maybe by 2050 we will have control back in our hands, or not, but "they" won't have control either because it will have become too big to handle.
