Some great posts I’ve found on the disaggregation of the PC in the home — we aren’t moving to bigger and bigger PCs in the home, but to elements of the computing environment spread all around:
* Furrygoat summary and his external storage box. His main point is all about pulling storage out of individual PCs and making it a household-wide resource.
* From decafbad, these gumstix are very cool concepts, it would be nice if assembling computing at home was as easy as throwing a couple of these together.
* A more general post from decafbad about single purpose devices in the home.
All the most aggressive users of technology I talk to are moving to disaggregation of storage in the home, despite the current designs of pcs which generally don’t encourage this disaggregation.
