I lack a Blackberry (or blueberry as my wife called it).
At some point I had one, but then I got a laptop, found it was easier to log into my gmail account and check my email that way, the Blackberry became redundant in some respects. I’m wondering if I should get one again though, I’m feeling lost without my email during the day, and my ThinkPad is getting a bit slow.
More and more as I recognize I’m an end user of my mac, my pc, is it a mac I need? Or is it an online virtual mac I need? Would it make any difference if the xeon processors are in my study or virtual?
I need the following. The iTunes service, the facility to type a document, send an email, burn the odd cd, sync my iPod and blog.
How many of these services though, actually need to run on my trusted MacPro?
I used to use Entourage (and I still do in some respects), but with gmail or hotmail (to mention a few), what I’m wondering is if I don’t actually need more a Blackberry, a Windows mobile device, a tablet or an iPhone and a virtual mac, a virtual pc which is stored online somewhere and the applications/functionality streamed to me, to my Apple display and this keyboard and mouse I’m using?
As we evolve this and take it to the next level from a carbon footprint standpoint, a cost per user and business opportunity – how many home users need a home pc? How do we provide what the end user needs more efficiently, effectively, at a lower cost and more securely? The old statement, I’m not putting my email online, how do we manage what users need, and what they perceive to need?
