A couple years ago, Lenovo announced its plans to build a "retro" ThinkPad that would resurrect design elements of ThinkPads past as an homage to the brand's long history.

That ThinkPad is now real. Check out the ThinkPad 25, sold to commemorate 25 years of ThinkPads.

I'm just going to leave this here for you lovely ThinkPad people. This isn't for me, but I'm not here to ruin your party.

Do clean up after yourselves.

Yep, something went terribly wrong. And it is not just in the Windows world.

Despite huge leaps in processing power and communication speeds, the overall web browser experience does not feel that much faster than it was with a dial-up modem. Media streaming sites appear to be notable exception. Maybe there are too many video adds going around?

Same for simple text editing and spreadsheet data entry and manipulation. There are still many "wait" times for response to keyboard keys or mouse clicks.
