If I want to get rid of my secure date I can use a hammer on my physical HD. Try using a hammer on a cloud

But trying to set that up on a 10" screen? Forget it. I currently sit behind two 23" widescreens and even then I find myself running out of screen estate for big models.
Add to that security and reliability concerns and it is looking even more doubtful. I used to do some work on the Astute submarine project, we were in a locked room and all our work was stored on a dedicated server in a safe in that room with no access to the internet. Try selling them a cloud service.
I think for the executives who do nothing but write e-mails and check the size of their bonus package this might be fine, but for the people who actually do the work the laptop and desktop is going to be arround for some time to come.
Oh, and from the article:
I'm a PC, and so is Apple!
But to be fair, you can hook up any monitor you'd like to pretty much every tablet out right now--along with most other peripherals. In the end, it comes down to whether the brains of the tablet can satisfy your needs.

Absolutely this. I started using my 1st year free of Asus' webstorage that came with the purchase of my TF, and on my blazingly fast 1mbps upload speed on my home connection (16/1), it took over a week just to upload ~40GB of pictures and videos I had taken with my camera. Another 5 days to upload my music collection (~25GB). I'm not quite sure what people think "the cloud" is for, but as of this moment, it's good for setting remote backups and letting it go if you have the time. Not really good for a lot of anything else just yet--can't fathom that things will change THAT much in 2 years.

This should be in the rumors section, because there is no way, whatsoever, that PCs will be entirely cloud-based by 2014, because we know....for certain...that not everyone will have Internet access in 2014.

In fact, drivel like this should just be removed from the news section. OP, shame on you for even posted crap like this.

Reminds me of what Paypal did to notch a while back where they shut him out from his 700,000$ in a week or something excessive. They then refused to open the account even when he stated who he was and why, they had to go with these arguments for weeks until notch was given access again, or so I believe it was that time period. I'll give a generous estimate of maybe we can trust companies and the cloud in 20 years tongue.gif.

It would have to be a monster tablet. I have to do a lot of pre-processing before I can run the case. It is essentially an error check - it runs through the first iteration of the calculation to see if anything falls over. I probably run one of those every 20mins or so when I am preparing a model and it maxes out my CPU for about 3-4mins.

Add to that the real time rendering of the 3D models which can bring a Quadro 2000 to it's knees and you are going to need one hell of a tablet to do my work.

I suppose if a tablet became powerful enough to run those things, and you throw in a docking station, then it could work.

Haha, agreed. A monster tablet the size of a desktop! biggrin.gif But regardless of the advancement of mobile hardware, there will always be a place for the computing power of desktops--now and for a very long time to come.

If all Computing was Cloud Based, it doesnt mean you would be working on your tablet or Cell Phone....

There are plenty of cheap efficient ways to allow you to use Keyboard mouse and normal monitors, only there would be no PC int eh way we think of PC's.

Might be a small Device like ones made by NComputing, which runs off one PC and provides Virtual PC to multiple users.

Or even a badass KVM Device that connects the users to Virtual Environments running off your Server, but the obvious limitations here beign the internet and number of users.

Face it, not everyone needs an i3 or i5 at work lol, my old job at Tigerdirect, I did just fine with that athlon 1600+ Socket A with a grizzly 512 MB of DDR1 lol

Im spoiled now though, my Company gavce me an i5 4gb and a 60gb SSD with Dual Widescreens =)~
