They'll never catch on!

Recommended Posts

From today's Telegraph:


Samsung DeX can turn your phone into a computer

The announcements are coming thick and fast. Samsung has a phone dock called DeX that turns it [the new Samsung S8 and S8+] into a desktop PC when you plug it into a keyboard, screen and mouse.

It's a very impressive demo, and a cool idea, but personally, it's just hard to see catching on

This statement will quite probably rank in the history books with:- 

"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home."

Ken Olsen, founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, 1977

Maybe the "personally" is the get out clause?

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
