Ok, so I just have one question relating to whole PRISM affair: how come it is so cheap? It is supposed to cost the taxpayers only 20 million $. That’s the retail price for all the servers NSA needs to have to gather, store and analyse the desired data from the famous 9 tech companies. Don’t you think that’s a suspiciously low price? Well if it’s real than I would like the NSA to do the hosting for me, looks like they are freaking cheap.
So maybe the core of this affair lays somewhere else: they are not using any of their servers. Maybe everything is being processed on tech companies servers?
Someone could change the second element that hasn’t changed in the last decade: screen. I mean come on do we really need that many pixels on a 4 inch screen? No matter how many pixels you are gonna put on this small screen it is still gonna be a damn small screen, I can read a couple of messages on it. But I do not like reading articles or watching photos and videos on it. So please think of something to make the display bigger without making the phone bigger. And make it more flexible, and unbreakable and less energy consuming.
We have a new Samsung Galaxy S4, awesome, amazing, bigger this, smaller that and thinner and lighter and… Nothing new, like everything else in hardware during recent years. So who is gonna change that? What will happen? Who is the next game changer? Well you can take a history book and look on the desktop and laptop market just a couple of years ago….
You also had Apple vs some other blokes etc. constant race of Gigabytes, Mega, Tera etc. So what happened, with this competition? How did it end? Actually I don’t know but no one seems to observe these markets now. Thanks to mobile… That’s a one possibility, some company will just introduce a product that is gonna create a new market and no one will be interested in smartphones anymore. Unlikely… What else? What happened in laptops? Not much, they were developed at the same boring rhythm until someone thought of netbooks and ultrabooks. That means further miniaturization in cost of performance… I don’t think that can happen here in mobile industry.
But I think at least one or two different elements may be developed in cost of performance.
Smartphones don’t need so much battery as their bigger and older brothers. Maybe this is a good occasion for some new solution when it comes to powering-up our devices? Maybe we can sacrifice some of the functionality and performance in the beginning just for the simple fact of the battery never requiring an electricity plug? They sacrificed some of the laptops features to create ultrabooks and netbooks, nowadays these devices are almost comparable to their bigger-fatter-heavier brothers. So in the same way, maybe some tech company will think of introducing a new kind of phone that will only need a few moments in your pocket while walking or a glimpse of the sun for powering up. It can have a slower processor that doesn’t consume so much power, it can have a worse internet connection due to power management, but damn that would be a nice and fresh breeze of innovation.

If you are interested in Euro 2012 Football Championships, than you should know that none of the planned highways for this event have been built. They are still under construction – with less than 2 weeks to the event, there are no chances of preparing these roads. And as it turns out most of the subcontractors who actually built these roads are totally broke and demolished by one of the biggest scams of the Euro 2012, prepared and executed by Polish officials and the government.
That’s old news, whats relatively new is the fact that we THE PEOPLE have the power to change the world and we started using this power in various actions across the globe. Naturally such behavior is condemned by the governments and the collective known as the Anonymous is supposed to be illegal, group of cyber hooligans… But is it? Continue reading →
