i doubt it. Even if a smart phone would be able to have 2TB HDD, 3.66 Ghz mutli core processor the same as an average desktop today. By that time, programs would would require maybe 100GB per game, for example. The small devices never will live up to a desktop.
Plus there are some of us that actually despise touch screens, would rather use mouse and keyboard, would rather have a large monitor. Hard core gamers rely on desktops to fullfill the need and we look at the ipods, etc. as useless. If we need it on the go, the laptop would suffice and will always also be better than those types of devices.
Ubuntu 13.04, x86_64, 3.8.0-19-generic, gnome3 desktop, multi-boot
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 8GB RAM, dual monitors, AMD Radeon HD 6770
Python 3.2.3 and 2.7.3, tkinter 8.5, pyqt 4.8.1, pygame 1.9.2 pre
And yes, there's an app for that, but it's terrible. = )
hmm...66. though i think some of these questions were really unnatural. like all the ones about abandoning social interaction. i guess the notepad one makes sense but i can just remember all my ideas anyways.
EDIT: really toasty? raito?
Desktop will never stop to be made.
I have one very good reason for this conclusion. You cannot run any corporate software on a pad. Imagine how you are going to make a really slow interface like citrix work on a pad. It isn't possible, and will never be possible.
I work in a shop, the cash cannot be a pad. Even a desktop is slow on cash registers, a pad can't handle the workload.
No! I am excited to build a computer form scratch in the coming months.
