There is only one Green computing, That is HandHeld Client Terminal
on a Remote Web-OS. Web Applications, Netbooks, Tablets are moving
towards that Direction.
The Tablet in HandHeld Computing
Here are some snippets of mine in various blog
posts from 2002 to now. to emphasize what is in my mind.
i saw that many computers in organization were turned on most of the
time, and hardly being used actively for more than 3-4 hours a day. Some
times it was just a visual console. In another place, something i saw
which got me worried, many computers were on, some were sending Yahoo
Greetings, some were using email or chat and others were just on the
Net. no desktop computing.
much energy, watts, cpu power, and harddisk space for Internet/Intranet
only activity. This was not green, reliable, portable or sustainable.
If you were to use a cad or graphics package, dtp or multimedia
authoring, gaming, then i agree you need a desktop computer, with all
the Juice, the entire gamut of Bells, Whistles and Nixies. Not for
intranet clients and internet use.
computing too, with intranet cloud coupled with the internet cloud need
to go green. Desktop computers should not be used for business
data/information management. Pre-Configured clients like tablets, even
for form filling and report view. In fact after all this business
automation, form filling still remains, later entered into the system. A
tablet has to be the form, the form has to be scribbled on the Tablet
Screen or the mailed Forms scanned and OCR'ed.
manufacturers will still have a good trade for Intranet and Web clouds.
Developers, Gamers, Programmers and Graphic Designers will still love
Web Applications on Dumb Terminals
Workflow Visualization, Creating Live Dashboards or Visual Office
Terminals; Simple Front end for Google Apps and Other Business
Processing and Monitoring Software in the Background.I would like to say
more in context of my science. It could be a Web Based LabView, but for
Office and Business Apps.
Web Applications simplify
office automation to a high degree, without adding more complexity in
system admin and process maintenance that exist in legacy solutions. -
There is a Better way, here it is. Make a switch. A Green, Mobile and Practical Device.
Mobile Virtual Office on Handheld Computer
- Flash based Meeting Rooms or Conference, Animated Avatars, Text Balloons like Comics.
- Virtual www office, Entry only with identity - Open-ID, Shows as Avatar in Meeting Room.
- Seven Inch Long, Golden Rectangle Size Device, Inch or Less Thick, Color LCD.
- Can store and read PDF-MP3-Midi-xml-jpeg and very popular file formats.
- Can easily show as a drive on all OS, emulating standard popular external drive.
- Open Hardware, Linux Gadget, Battery Operated, Wifi-USB Interfaces.
- Email and Text Messaging, Audio Video Messaging, Shared fies or folder.
SWF and FLV formats can make Interactive Books. The e of a
eReader could be the Interactive Elements in a book or call it iReader
after integrating Multi-Media. Tutorials and Stories come with sound
too. Hence SWF and FLV can be a evolutionary step from Cellulose Based
Info-Media. HTML5 !! tooo.
Wireless Computer and Device Networking
Wi-Fi OR xG OR WiMax
has to be good for people who travel around the globe, practical and
sensible usage of internet, for information or data communications over
Handheld devices. The greater need is jitter-glitch-free online
experience on mobile devices including netbooks over a large user base.
accessible, Online office webapps and communication-collaboration
tools; need us to be online and capable wherever we are. An Untethered
Web Office is possible only with a broadband wireless network. Home,
office, travel or In-between, you can continue the productive, creative
or research work.
