Dan calls for less go, more show
Dan of Dan's Data is unimpressed by recent advances in PC hardware and performance, and he'd like more focus on other things
, like usability and interface design:
The world's now not exactly short of people who've owned a high end GeForce FX or Radeon for the thick end of two years now, and who re-brained their perfectly good 1.6GHz Athlon box into a New Hotness overclocked P4 2.4C well over a year ago, and can't now quite remember why. . . . But, y'know, woo-hoo to that. It's not as if the new machine understands what I say and replies in Majel Barrett's voice.
He's got a point. I think.
