I know MS is going to be pushing their cloud version of something but I don't know what it is (haven't bothered to look into it) and I don't know what knowledge will still be applicable. I'm sure much of the knowledge will still be relevant but most of the knowledge also doesn't require a cert.
Cloud based everything! I can't wait until I can play the next elder scrolls game on my ultra/air book.

Have you seen the CES news? I want to try the SurRound House.
Also, some of those new tablets are ridiculous.

Just caught a glimpse of some of the stuff. I like talking to the guys when they come back from the show and picking their brains on stuff.

Just checked out the SurRound House. Interesting to see what comes of that technology.

About AMD got back into the business of doing cool stuff

You live in SoCal and you just found out about this?

For shame

LOL, you can have a virtual warehouse where you feel like you are in a massive hangar with lifts and cool cars, and Korean waitresses when really you're just in your bathroom.
