[NYTimes] Windows on the iPad, and Speedy (1GIGABYTE per second internet) - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
yes, i tried to edit... It would show up in the edit, but not in the save. also, yes it's a gigaBIT... not gigabyte... apologize... i still don't understand how it's possible.... the article for example says you could DL a 20mb file before your finger even leaves the screen (paraphrasing), but i don't understand it... regardless of how fast it's sent to you, how could you exceed your connection speed?

Why do i have to log into the NYTimes to read it?

It could be useful, if it works correctly.

I would want this so I can run Windows applications on my Linux system...

Sounds too good to be true. Free? Holy crap. I could care less about the speeds. It is the fact that you can get a live Windows session free on your iPad that is really great. Now they just need to make it accessible from OS X and Linux, and I am sold biggrin.gif.

You can't exceed your own speed. It just shows a remote desktop of a virtual machine on their server so all that gets sent to you is the visual of what is on their "screen". Imagine your iPad is just a virtual monitor keyboard mouse.
