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.

We used to run all our software locally and cache networked data for performance, now we run most software in the cloud and sync our entire image and video-collection to Cloud-Services


Well, if you really do that, you probably have small image and video collections and are fine with pretty low quality software. We're not there yet, and I'm not convinced I'd want to go there in any case, for a lot of reasons.

Not every complain is about old people yelling to clouds. There are a lot of valid points about good things we are losing in the name of convenience.
