Windows "Imagine a phone that could run real Remote Desktop. Real PowerShell. Anything that can run on your desktop PC. Imagine 'phablet' form factors, similar to today's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could dock to a desktop setup and utilize an external display, keyboard, mouse, and other peripherals. Imagine a single set of APIs that work everywhere. Imagine that Phone isn't a whole separate platform, but an app. An app that runs on Windows. Real Windows. The Windows Phone team could never make that happen. But the Windows client team? You betcha. Make it happen, Microsoft. It's time to take the phone seriously." I have never agreed with Thurrot as much as I do right now.

In case you ain't noticed friend the trend with warranties are going down down DOWN so that you pay all this money and are lucky if you get a 1 year warranty on the thing. Once upon a time many things had 3 year warranties, heck hard drives even had 5 year warranties, now unless you pay out the nose you are getting a lousy year which when we are talking about devices that cost upwards of a grand in some cases is just pathetic.

And sadly friend its getting to the point that laptops are more like phones than desktops, I have a pile of laptops that most likely will be going in the garbage because the cost of parts will be more than you can ever get off selling the thing. This push for disposable devices is not being followed with the major drop in price that one would expect from disposable devices and we shouldn't put up with it, 1 year warranties on high ticket items is an insult!
