Why The Desktop PC Will Never Die

By | October 24th, 2012|Cloud Computing, Computer, Program, Tech News|0 Comments

Over the past few years we have seen many innovators in the computer world claim that the era of the desktop PC is coming to an end. Stating that the mobile world is taking over, bringing with it highly portable devices such as the latest Windows 8 tablet and the new iPad. But can we really live without our desktop PC’s? There is a time and place for mobile devices. Yes they are extremely portable, and yes as each year passes they become more powerful and include a whole new range of features. But nothing comes close to the convenience, power and efficiency of a desktop PC when in an office environment. Sure the latest tablet or smartphone is great for conducting business on the go. They fit nicely in your pocket, look great and make displaying presentations during meetings and performing basic tasks a breeze, but serious work is best left to the desktop PC. Here are a number of reasons why the desktop computer is not yet dead. Desktop PC’s don’t cost much Compare the latest laptop with a desktop and you will soon notice which one comes in at much less of a cost. Laptop’s need to be portable and mobile, which reflects directly on the cost of the device since various parts and components need to be engineered so they can fit inside your laptop. Desktop components however don’t necessarily need to be so tight on size. They can be a lot larger due to the far greater size of a desktop tower. Desktop PC’s have more power Laptop processors come nowhere near the sheer power of those featured in desktop computers. While those included in various mobile and tablet devices don’t even come close. Desktop computers have no restrictions in terms of energy or power, since they are plugged in directly to a socket in the wall. The can be surrounded by a number of fans, or even a liquid cooling system that prevents them from overheating and allows them to perform at an incredibly high level for extended periods of time. Desktop PC’s can utilize a number of peripherals As mobile devices and laptops become thinner and smaller in size, the connectivity in terms of ports usually pays the price. How many USB ports does your laptop have? What about your tablet? Most desktops include a minimum of four USB ports, some feature even more. Not only this but they come with a range of other high end connectivity options including eSATA, VGA, DVI, HDMI and a number of audio lines. Desktops PC’s can increase their screen size With increased screen ‘real estate’ comes increased productivity (or so studies tell us). But how big is the largest laptop screen available? 17.3 inches is about the biggest you can find on today’s market, but even at this size it becomes very bulky and difficult to carry around. When it comes to a desktop PC, 20 or 24 inch monitors are standard. With a decent graphics card you can even support four or more additional monitors. Just think of all that extra productivity and work you can get done. Desktop’s are secure No one is going to run off with your desktop from the library, or the train, or even the cafe down the road. The truth is your desktop stay’s in your office, at home or at work. Making them far less likely to be the victim of theft. Even better, because desktops are bulky and a pain to move. They pretty much stay in the same place for their entire lives. Therefore they don’t suffer from the same dings, scratches and accidental drops as our favorite mobile, tablet or laptop devices do throughout their time. Making them last much, much longer. […]

Are You Already in the Cloud?: Social Media and Cloud Computing

By | August 12th, 2011|Cloud Computing, Computer, Program, Reviews|0 Comments

You’ve probably skimmed through articles about cloud computing in business magazines or online. Everything from online fax services to data storage has been influenced by and developed through the Cloud. While this buzzword may seem far from you, your life, and your work, cloud computing informs a huge part of the web: social media. Social networking sites like YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter all use cloud computing in their own way. Since your everyday life and business is informed by this technology, it could be helpful to understand the basic cloud services and their function. There are three different cloud services: application, infrastructure, and platform. The cloud application services, Software as a Service (SaaS), deliver software as a service over the internet. Customization is generally limited on SaaS software, as of right now. Examples of SaaS include Gmail, Google Docs, Salesforce.com, and Workday. Cloud infrastructure services, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), allows for the use of applications, storage, and networking infrastructure as a service. This can be useful for startups who aren’t sure how successful a newly launched website or application will be. For example, Amazon Web Services, RightScale, and Proofpoint. Finally, cloud platform services, Platform as a Service (PaaS), deliver a computing platform and sustain a cloud infrastructure and applications. Examples of PaaS include Microsoft Azure Service Platform and Force.com (part of Salesforce.com). If you opt for PaaS you can focus on developing an application, while the platform is already sustained. Independent Software Vendors and IT service providers usually subscribe to PaaS. There are plenty of ways that companies are using the Cloud to tap into social networks and improve Customer Relationship Management (CRM). For example, real time, in process analytics have made it possible for companies to analyze customer behavior and predict future behavior based on customer patterns. Through cloud computing, we can better pinpoint customer dissatisfaction and take corrective action. Another example of the capabilities of the Cloud is SaaS application marketing. Under the SaaS model, a company can add a new social media channel or feed to an application and make it available to customers on-demand. New technology is eneabling companies to better understand and connect with their consumers. While cloud computing can seem foreign at first, once you’re familiar with the basic premise you can use the Cloud to your advantage. […]
