  • New Flashdrive-sized PC

    Saw this on endgadget today: http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/17/f...-into-a-cloud/

    If it's not vaporware, it would be perfect for an android (or linux)-based car pc, especially for an all-in-one kind of a build.

    As long as you had a constant internet connection so you'd be able to use a thin client to access your real computer, wherever it is. This requires a thin client to access a remote computer, and with all of the dead zones with 3g/4g, I wouldn't be very happy driving down the road and losing connection, which means no music/video/etc. And I don't know how GPS would work with this device - probably not at all would be my guess.

    It's too early to tell, of course, but I don't see this replacing a carpc.

      I don't think that's the case - it has a dual-core ARM processor and a dedicated video chip, along with a micro-sd slot, wifi and bluetooth. It is a standalone ARM-powered computer, kind of like Pandaboard.
