Windows 8
MeasurementBlues   12/2/2013 11:21:46 PM
Could it be that Windows 8 is turning people away from PCs to tablets? If you ahve the same look and feel on a PC as you get on a tablet, why get a PC? I'm now at a point where I need to think about what to do with my two XP laptops and desktop. To tell the truth, I'm leaning towards a used $300 laptop just to get Windows 7. The thought of learning to use Widows 8, then teachin others in my family, seems like a huge waste of time when we already know how to use the XP/7 user interface.

I would agree and have specualted that Apple will offer an A7-based platform. Although Apple is still on the high-end of traditional PC pricing, the company is offering more competitive pricing on the MacBook Air and the iPad this holiday season.

Apple Macbook Air - Good Choice

Apple is also offering 20% discount on its MacBook Air and that makes it very attractive choice. IF Apple comes out with MAcbook with A7, cost will go down further and price will go down again.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
