tags: tech public draft

lieu, [26.11.20 14:28] i think the future will be

lieu, [26.11.20 14:28] you carry a work phone and a personal phone

lieu, [26.11.20 14:28] and there will be laptop/desktop/tablet "shells"

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] completely dividing up form from function lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] You only upgrade one device

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] You can keep the shells and peripherals the same

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] That is a key value prop imo

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] And the best thing is that those shells can be really any form factor you want really

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] They don't even have to be restricted to laptop tablet desktop

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] Could be anything

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] That's what i mean by decoupling

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] Conceivably in the future you might have a touchscreen wall

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] let's say

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] Just plug your phone into the dock

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] And then the entire wall mounted screen becomes a massive tablet

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] If you want to do big screen gaming plug it into your TV

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] for consumer .. the way forward is to wait for apple to do it

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] Microsoft doesn't have the solution because

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] you need to control both mobile and desktop

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] and apple is the only person who does

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] Google has chromebooks which are shite

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] Microsoft king of desktop only

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] so apple is the only one who could pull it off

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] you have a phone which is your primary computer

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] and you can plug it into

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] its like

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] we are decoupling the form of the device

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] from the brain of the device

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] just like i plug my laptop into a 28 inch monitor

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] thsi is just taking it ot the next step

lieu, [26.11.20 14:29] [Forwarded from lieu] you have a phone that can plug into a tablet/laptop/desktop shell or "dock"
