HP Unveils Mobile Thin Client
That's right -- a mobile
Well, sort of mobile. It's not for the road warrior with millions of frequent
flyer miles, Tad Bodeman, director of blade PC and thin client solutions for
the HP Personal Systems Group, told RCPU. It's more for folks jumping from meeting
"Folks that are working in a wireless campus environment -- this is targeted
at them," Bodeman said. "They want to have a mobile device because
they want to work at their desks, go from conference room to conference room
for their meetings."
Sounds useful. Tad adds: "When you're not connected, there's nothing running
on this mobile thin client," so a machine that's lost or stolen won't end
up giving, say, thousands of Social Security numbers to somebody who really
shouldn't have them.
All very good. But then, Bodeman said this of the new mobile thin client's
users: "They want to go home, have dinner, log back in and do some more
work at night or on the weekend."
Grr. Well, thank you very much, HP, for making that easier and safer
to do. There go our weekends -- and weeknights!
