My apologies, but with the election over, I just couldn’t resist the urge to use ‘Joe the Plumber’.  What a joke, but I’ll tell you what isn’t a joke, Ncomputing’s networked computer system.  The tiny, fanless box contains no CPU or extreme hardware, but allows its user to perform their day-to-day PC tasks, such as Web surfring, document editing and more.  It works by connecting to one central computer that does all the heavy lifting that is shared with other users.  As a result, NComputing’s machines are ultra green using 95% less energy than the laptop I write this post on – about 1-4watts.  Also, with no moving parts in the NComputers there’s less to breakdown and less heat dissipation, which means no cooling fans or costly, nonecofriendly A/C.

The NComputers already in use by over a million people in India, Bangladesh and Macedonia and are largely utilized by schools, business and public access areas.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
