Hardware, Embedded Systems Something truly interesting is currently happening in the PC space. Ask any random internet commenter how the PC market is doing, and I'm pretty sure you're going to get something along the lines of 'everybody but Apple is failing'. Turns out this isn't the case - Lenovo has just become the world's largest PC and laptop vendor, after three years of steady growth in sales and profits. "During the second fiscal quarter, Lenovo's worldwide PC shipments grew 10.3 percent, in a difficult market that was down eight percent year-over-year, the 14th quarter in a row that the company has grown faster than the PC industry as a whole. In this challenging environment, Lenovo achieved its highest-ever worldwide market share of 15.6 percent, gaining share points in every geography, every product category in which it competes, and in every respective customer segment." Very impressive.

It's funny, my workstation has unintentionally turned into a shrine to things that IBM used to make: Unicomp Model M clone connected to a Thinkcentre, which has a Thinkpad sitting on top of it.
*I've been decidedly-unimpressed with everything I've used from Lenovo that didn't have "Think" prefixed to its name. Same cheap crap you get from Dell, HP, Acer, et al.

I propose you run on that shrine the Hercules emulator, in the background, ~idling; though serving some files or smth would be even better ;) )

(hm, and over here consumer Lenovo laptops seem one of the nicer ones, with great value; they are really what's responsible for most of the growth)

PS. Oh my, and it took me whole 5 minutes to realise I forgot about OS/2. ;p
Too bad IBM Simon is non-functional in present mobile networks...
