Shadow, what is your first thought?
I start by quoting people: Nick.
Then random: motors
I could go on, more and more, would you like to mention other examples as well?
The world is full of shadows …
I wonder how the choice to call Shadow even a computer that can be accessed remotely came about.
It is is a powerful Windows PC that allows to use any kind of application without buying hardware, which as you know, tends to be obsolete very quickly, as well as expensive.
A faculty that opens up a kind of new and important revolution with respect to the use of technology in our daily lives.
Or do you see it more as another standardization?
The obvious and immediate benefits come in the form of being able to operate at maximum power without having to shell out large sums in equipment purchases.
Also at the level of the environment, the exploitation of certain materials would certainly be reduced, and above all, the need for disposal of many devices would be reduced, since everyone would be able to operate with the available device, simply by connecting.
However, connection may also be the first downside: if it goes off, all work would stop.
The same if the “server” would break.
And again: the conditions at the beginning may appear advantageous, but the costs could rise uncontrollably, as we are unfortunately seeing.
So there is a risk of finding oneself regretting the old PC, perhaps slow but working.
Light, or shadow?
While we decide, something “dark” undoubtedly is the cloud!
I can’t help but think about the scene in which Jason Segel yells at Cameron Diaz, “nobody knows what the cloud is!”
The infamous cloud: a kind of black hole where our data ends up, or a valuable opportunity?
To USerS 🙂 the harsh judgment.
