Especially if you think about where we’re going to be with mobile broadband with 5g, 6g, etc etc. Reminds me of the Caribbean where they spent shit loads on telephone infrastructure right before mobiles took off .
Next big thing will be compute on demand. You run a tiny thin client tgats nothing more than a remote desktop connection. Everything is remote.

You pay like you would for Sky. A monthly subscription and you get a dumb box tgats a window to the capacity you've bought.

And in the past it's failed because there hasn't been the bandwidth to provide a realistic desktop experience over broadband.

Latency is the biggest problem, at least for games isn't it? Didn't Steam or someone try it a few years ago and it tanked because it was laggy?

Yup. You wouldn't use it for gaming. But email, Web browsing, YouTube, bit of Spotify etc?

All the stuff your gran uses it for, only now you don't need to dick around with malware checkers, replacing hardware etc.

Surely the next big thing with personal computers is smartphones being personal computers... so connecting then to a dock - which now could just be done via WiFi - given how powerful phones are getting.
