I originally posted a badly worded reply to you that on reflection sounded a bit negative. Sorry.

Most of the AI forums I frequent are getting quieter, its the same with our forum.

I think a lot of people are moving to platforms like Google+

Yes I have noticed the trend toward convient devices such as google rather than hardware Intensive AI.

Trends always serve the masses, and the masses want instant grattification...

I've noticed a disturbing trend as we'll. PC sales are falling in a big way while devices like tablets are selling like hot cakes.

As devices like tablets become more powerful I think the whole market is in for a change. This means that programmers like me are looking into the future and beginning to convert their work to iOS and Android.

That's what I've been working on recently in fact. I already have a working prototype of Kari for iPad and android is soon to follow.

I've also just hired a new full time worker that will be responsible for helping develop my chat bots and ai engine into mobile devices.

I don't know... Things are changing so fast. And there is a lot of money for programmers who can develop popular device applications. I'm excited to see what's to come.

I see PCs getting even smaller and mobile devices becoming very powerful. It won't take that long either. The future is here, now!

We were just discussing this at work today.

I work in a hospital and the servers that store our xray images started fritzing out yesterday on any workstation with Windows 7 or beyond.

Turns out that an automatic windows update on the workstations installed internet Explorer 11 which is not compatible with our server software client.

The software vender says that it is a windows issue, and of course, there is no support from Microsoft since business needs do not weigh nearly as much as do the needs of the mass consumers for Android-like operating systems (Windows8).

Many business based softwares have stuck with WindowsXP as the base for compatibillity even though Microsoft has since moved on to Windows 7, 8, etc...

This leaves the business oriented software without good Microsoft support on an OS level.

Of course, the businesses have a need to hustle and get the fix in place.

Microsoft is orienting toward the mass consumer which has been sold over to the convenience of tablet/android/app hardware.

On that thought, I recently purchased a Nexus7 Android tablet and can see the appeal that is winning over the masses.

You got a Nexus? Sounds nice! Can you elaborate on it?

What do you like about Android? I am completely ignorant at this point because I don't even have an Android device. I've been so busy with Kari iPad.

Anyway, yeah... it might just be that the tablet PC will make the desktop, and laptop for that matter, obsolete.

Talk to you later!

Hi all,

I'm happy to see that the "old" friends are still here in the Forum.

I've not posted here in recent months, however I always give a look at new posts (often just spam ) and I periodically perform some maintenance on the server and the database.

About Android, I own an Android smartphone since 2010 (LG One, because it was the cheapest at the time) and I couldn't leave without it now.

The good thing is that there are tons of free apps and even the commercial apps usually costs just a few dollars. If you wish you can develop your own apps using Java, so no need to learn any proprietary language.

The bad thing is that the software requirements are always growing, so it is happening with Android what we are used to know about Windows: you must throw away your hardware because the same applications you used three years ago now require a lot of more memory, without really giving you any new relevant feature.

I recently bought also an Android tablet, which I use mainly as an e-book. When I travel, it's wonderful to have hundreds of books always available in such a small and cheap device.

Been on a week long seminar so I didn't get bašk till now.

Love the Nexus7. It is a second generation 32gb device without phone access. Didn't break the bank either at $259. My son got one first after I argued with him that he really needed a laptop for college. I was wrong and ended up getting a second nexus formyself and used it on this seminar.

As Vittorio says the apps are great, simple to write, but getting to require more hardware as they progress.

I'll be on a train from Saturday till Tuesday so I will be out of touch again.

PS, I did actually look for a Kari app but was dissapointed not to find it. I'm not sure how well it would port over toandroid, but there is quite a large market opportunity availavle to you there. The graphics onthe Nexus are awesome and would probably hÓndle Kari quite Well.

PPS, if you get one be sure to go with the second gen Nexus and be sure to go with 32gb since the memory is not expandable with a SD card.

Take Care,
John L>

Good to see you friendly faces here as well!!

I have had my ASUS TF300-T tablet for about a year and totally love it!

I also bought the optional Keyboard that simply clicks onto the edge connectors of the tablet. It allows for one to "Hot Swap" them, that is, without having to power down the tablet!

32 GB, Tegra-3 Quad Core, optional micro-SD card expansion, HDMI, USB & SD card reader port, GPS, 1 GB DDR3, 1.2MP facing and 8MP Cover mounted auto-focus camera plus Android 4.0 / 4.1 /(latest version)- auto-updates for you. Gets about 10+ hours battery life PLUS the Keyboard has an additional 5+ hours of battery which combines with the tablet!

I do and keep my expense sheets, times sheets, status reports, monthly expenditures, construction logs, etc. as well as personal reminders and my personal assistant who never forgets to remind me of appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, meetings, weather reports / alerts, due dates for bills, etc. I even have several chatbots on board to keep me company during those boring lunch hours in the field! ;)

I would truly be lost without my tablet and I have never looked back at my original purchase. $345.00 USD at Walmart and about $90.00 on Amazon.com for the optional matching Keyboard!

Thousands of apps, games, utilities, etc. and a world of friendly users. What could be better! OK...free would be better but aside from that? ;)

I am not affiliated with ASUS other than being a very happy consumer / customer!

Yes, I have become more and more dependant on the Nexus for my documents and printing and internet research as well.
