Dell CEO Michael Dell has decided HP's recent move — spinning off and possibly selling its PC division — is a bad one. In August, HP stunned the IT world with the announcement that it plans to spin off its PC business and possibly even sell it, which would be a major change in strategy for the company.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday, a day before the company's Dell World conference starts, Dell offered three reasons why HP shouldn’t do it, sending a very clear message to the company and its shareholders. Finally, Dell said that cutting off the client business makes it less likely for employees of companies that are HP's clients to buy HP products. HP keeps repeating that it hasn't yet decided whether it will spin off its Personal Systems Group.
Still, simply by putting that option on the table, HP has shaken its own foundation to the core, and backing off from the decision now could be just as harmful as staying the course. Dell is not the only one who thinks that spinning off of its PC business would be a bad move for HP. However, when the CEO of one of your biggest competitors tells you you're completely off-course, it has to be at least a bit worrisome: both for the company's management and the shareholders.

The only way IBM could do this was by eschewing proprietary components and building the PC from off-the-shelf OEM parts. It will be interesting, and a bit sad, to see the PC consumers reduced to gamers and professionals (arquitects, video editors, etc.).
It probably means that upgrading your desktop will start getting more expensive … upgrade now! Hehe, yes, desktops will eventually become a minority share, I guess — and I suppose that will drive the cost of components up! Having said that, you can make a desktop out of mainly laptop parts… so perhaps it’ll be OK! Also, it should be noted that the first successful personal computer was NOT from IBM… it was the Apple II. Are you actually trying to say that the IBM PC did not define the last 30 years of computing…?
My first computer was Apple II Color 320 x 200 TV, Then Kaypro CPM, then in 1981 IBM PC with 16K Ram and Cassette player for software. I think this is a nice little article that sort of simply looks at the contributions the IBM PC started and a quick overview of how the last 30 years were like. Natale e alle porte, e tempo di comprare i regali per parenti, amici e perche no – anche per noi stessi. Regalare, o semplicemente acquistare, un tablet PC in questo periodo e particolarmente complesso.
In primo luogo esistono i tablet PC con Windows RT – questi dispositivi sono dotati di una versione particolare di Windows che, pur essendo ad una prima occhiata praticamente indistinguibile da un normale Windows 8, offre funzionalita diverse. Il Microsoft Surface RT non e in vendita in Italia ma si puo acquistare da Francia o Germania.
Con Windows 8, il 26 ottobre, sono arrivati anche un buon numero di dispositivi dotati del nuovo processore Intel Atom Z2670, con architettura dual-core, denominata Clover Trail, che e stata sviluppata ed ottimizzata appositamente per Windows 8. Tra questi modelli il migliore sembra essere il Samsung ATIV Smart PC che per 799,00 Euro (vedi l’offerta) include il processore Atom, 2 GB di RAM, disco da 64 GB, schermo da 11,6 pollici, tastiera con porte e batteria aggiuntive e penna Wacom.
Un tablet PC e un dispositivo straordinario ma spesso, per essere vissuto al meglio, necessita di una serie di accessori e miglioramenti.

But before you get carried away with the idea of bringing free computer access to the people, you need to take some security measures to protect both the device and your private network. Repurposing an old desktop system as a public-access PC for the lobby of your business or local school is a great way to put neglected hardware to use. The free Windows 8.1 update adds an Assigned Access feature to the Pro, Enterprise, and RT editions of Microsofta€™s troubled operating system.
Microsoft hasna€™t as yet included the Assigned Access feature or settings in the Preview release, but this leaked screenshot of an internal build shows what the settings might look like.
If you cana€™t wait for Assigned Access to come with Windows 8.1, or if doesna€™t provide the functionality you need, you can turn to other features built into Windows Vista (and later) for improving security on your kiosk PC.
These features dona€™t provide nearly as much power to restrict and control access as third-party options do, so people using your public PC could download documents or even malware. On the positive side, Windows makes it easy for you to quickly restrict application and Web usage without spending a dime.
First, create a standard Windows account for public use, and make sure that you set a complex password on the PCa€™s Administrator account. Once youa€™ve configured Windows for maximum security, use the built-in Windows backup utilities to save the configuration.

You can use Windows 7 to create a system image via the Control Panela€™s Backup and Restore.
Many third-party programs can turn public PCs into dedicated information kiosksa€”and you can use the same software that big businesses use to repurpose an old PC with far more security and control than Windows provides. Kiosk SoftwareDedicated kiosk PC software like the suitably named Kiosk Software can give your DIY public PC a professional appearance at reasonable cost. Repurposing an old PC as a public kiosk is a great way to share Internet access with your community. If you use Windowsa€™ Parental Controls, you can easily to limit Web browsing to a whitelist of sites that youa€™ve authorized as acceptable for public consumption.
Easily the simplest OpenDNS option, FamilyShield offers preconfigured adult-content filtering. No matter how you choose to set up your PC, pay attention to the security of the network ita€™s running on.
Laptop locks are great for people working in crowded coffee shops, but they also serve as an inexpensive theft deterrents on kiosk PCs.

PCWorld helps you navigate the PC ecosystem to find the products you want and the advice you need to get the job done. The rise of smartphones and the cloud will render traditional desk-based computers all but obsolete within three years, claims Google Europe boss. A senior Google executive believes the rise of smartphones will see the desktop PC all but obsolete within three years. Google Europe boss John Herlihy told delegates at the Digital Landscapes conference at University College Dublin that the move towards the cloud would see mobile devices capable of increasingly rapid and complex applications. He cited Japan as an example, claiming the majority of research there is now done on smartphones, not PCs. Herlihy's comments largely echo those made by Google chief executive Eric Schmidt at Mobile World Congress last month, where he announced that the company was shifting to a “mobile first” strategy, having already built strong foundations through its Android mobile operating system and key role in the Open Handset Alliance. According to Herlihy, part of Google's success was down to its willingness to try out new ideas, embracing those that worked and discarding those that didn't with “relentless brutality and execution”.
He also revealed that fear of “the next Google” was one of the primary forces behind its seemingly relentless expansion.
HP also discontinued the HP TouchPad and sold off the inventory for $99 a piece, and gave up on its mobile platform, webOS, which it acquired with the $1.2 billion acquisition of Palm in April 2011.
He also said a vast majority of PC components go into client devices — 95% of all hard drives, for example. And all this comes less than a month after a leadership shakeup, with CEO Leo Apotheker forced out and replaced by Meg Whitman, the former eBay CEO. The company has been widely criticized by analysts and media pundits, and the value of the company's shares dropped considerably following the announcement.
Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe.
Since then, the firm has designed goods in the categories of consumer electronics, housewares, high-tech toys, furniture, and lighting.
However, these images are 3D renderings of a design concept which does not yet exist in the real world. It’s a small point, but shouldn’t the slideshow celebrating 30 years of the PC include an image of the original PC?
The two four color pallets were such hideous combinations that the CGA standard was quickly shoved aside once EGA became available. Non solo all’interno dei vari negozi fisici o virtuali sono presenti solo un terzo dei dispositivi inizialmente previsti, ma i sono anche molto diversi per funzionalita, qualita e prezzo. Windows RT, operando su processori con architettura ARM, permette la costruzione di dispositivi ultraleggeri, privi di ventole e soprattutto dotati di autonomi estreme (dieci o piu ore). Considerando che integra al suo interno Office 2013 Home & Student, si tratta di una offerta molto interessante. But if you take the time to secure it properly, you can get a lot of mileage out of turning it into a dedicated public-access machine. You need ensure thatA people who use your kiosk cana€™t monkey with system settings, add or remove applications, or download malware.
Depending on what you want to offer in the kiosk, you may even be able to rely on Windowsa€™ built-in features instead of installing extra software.
If you update your PC to Windows 8.1 you can use Assigned Access to lock down your Windows 8 PC or tablet so that public users can access only a particular Windows Store app. To this point, however, it appears that you can limit access to Windows Store apps only in the new Windows 8 interface.
Moreover, inattentive or poorly informed people can put their own privacy at risk by saving files to your PC and leaving the browser history intact.
This is probably an acceptable solution if you trust the people who will be using this PC or if you plan to keep a fairly close eye on your users. Next, log in to that Administrator account and enable Parental Controls for restricting program and Web usage.
That way, you can restore everything if your public PC ever suffers a catastrophic failure and you need to restore it from a backup. In Windows 8 you can create and use the Refresh and Reset features to roll your PC back to its previous, presumably pristine state, and you can create a custom refresh state using the recimg.exe tool.
Though each piece of software has its own quirks and peccadilloes, nearly all of them protect a system against permanent tampering and preserve both your privacy and the privacy of whoever uses your PC.

If youa€™re operating on a stricter budget, try the excellent Netkiosk, a free utility that you can use to lock down a PC for public use in a small business, a big house, or a local school. If you plan to offer general Web access on the kiosk, however, you should enable some sort of Web filtering.
The OpenDNS Home service lets you customize the filtering and security settings, but it requires you to create an account and install a program on at least one PC on the same network.
Whether youa€™re setting up a general-use PC for a hotel lobby, a local elementary school, or even your spare bedroom, chances are you dona€™t want the public poking around in your local network. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links. And with that trend likely to emerge in western markets too, Google is shifting its focus increasingly to the mobile space.

We are currently meeting with PC manufacturers and hope that will change in the near future. IBM, realizing that the small office and home computing markets were about to take off, set up a small 12-man task force called the Entry Systems Division. Also, you point out Apple’s contributions which is definitely not IBM or an IBM clone as you claim this article to be. I think it’s fairly clear from the first sentence, though, that this story is about the IBM PC. You would have to eliminate Apple from the lineup and that would be wholly unfair to deny Apple’s contributions. You should also help protect your users from themselves, by preventing them from accidentally saving documents, browser passwords, or personal information to your public PC. The trick is to figure out who will be using your public PC and what theya€™ll be using it for. If youa€™re setting up a public PC with a single purposea€”say, for browsing the Web with Internet Explorera€”or a single app, this is a quick, easy way to secure it and prevent users from accessing other apps and settings. Consequently, if you need to limit access to a traditional desktop application or provide general access to Windows, youa€™ll probably need to adopt another approach. PCWorld recently published an article on childproofing your PC, and many of the tips and tricks that appear there also apply here.A Of course, if youa€™re using the Ultimate or Enterprise edition of Windows 7 and have some tech support experience, you can dig into the AppLocker, an application-control system introduced with Windows 7. Some programs even feature automatic restore functionality that wipes away any changes and user cache when at log-off or rebooting. No matter what you plan to use the PC for, chances are you dona€™t want a someone accidentallya€”or on purposea€”accessing websites that arena€™t safe for work. You can apply this free service to your entire network by editing the DNS address on your router, or you can apply it to specific PCs and devices by editing their individual DNS addresses. For either service, OpenDNS provides great step-by-step instructions for editing the DNS address of your router or PC. If your wireless router has a guest Wi-Fi access feature, enable it and connect the kiosk PC to the guest network to keep it isolated from your main private network.
If youa€™re using an old laptop, you can repurpose common laptop antitheft devices to protect the PC while ita€™s out in public.
Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements. We seek feedback at every opportunity on something – we either kill it, adjust it or redeploy resources. Dave maintains a commitment to education by teaching a weekly class in 3D Visualization at OTIS College of Art + Design in Los Angeles, CA. In the meantime, thanks for the interest, and it’s very cool that you thought the images were real. Prior to the Personal Computer, every IBM product (computer, printer, storage system) went through a laborious design process that could take years to get to market. And putting a PC in the common area of your home, your local school, or your place of business provides convenient Internet access for visitors and gives you a great tool for sharing media, accepting job applications at the office, or helping customers share information with your business. But the AppLocker uses incredibly complex and technical application execution rules and exceptions.
Blocking inappropriate content with OpenDNS requires a bit of advanced networking know-how, but you can get started with the companya€™s excellent guides for using FamilyShield to filter Web traffic.
Use heavy-duty tape or plastic to block access to unused ports, and use cords to prevent visitors from tampering with them.
The Entry Systems Division, however, were given free reign to do whatever it took to launch the IBM Personal Computer as quickly as possible. Digging into the AppLocker for the first time can be a humbling experience, so tread carefully and use this guide to Windows 7 security featuresA as a reference.
Regardless of which option you choose, take care to classify the network as Public in Windows (which youa€™re prompted to do the first time you connect), to disable sharing and network discovery. But dona€™t get too carried away with locking down your PC: The point is to repurpose hardware that you might otherwise trash to serve as a public PC that anyone can usea€”and whether your DIY project ends up in a business or in a local school, it wona€™t serve its purpose if people cana€™t use it to be productive on the Internet.
Yes, I can do this on my laptop, but I can do it faster on my desktop, which doesn’t have to worry about overheating and gives me pure processing power, AND is connected to a large screen.
