[citation][nom]frenetic88[/nom]yea i guess your right. video conferencing and a hd video camera cant be used for anything. just pointless technologies. no way a business or home user could find any practical use for that.....jackass[/citation]
He was talking about Cisco's home tablet, not the cool business version. You're the jackass.
Ever tried to watch a video not shot in at least 720p on a big screen or 42" plus flat screen monitor?? You have to have HD video in order to have a clear picture. There were right to put that in there. If you use the tablet for video conferencing, the HD camera will allow a clear enough picture for the people on the other end to be able to visualize in their conference room your people on their big screen in their conference room.
The versatility of Linux and Ubuntu run Cius tablet is to gonna be soon demonstrated. Cius has similar or close features as those offered by Apple's iPad 3/4G. But as has been demonstrated before, Linux and Ubuntu are superior OSes than iOS4 or Windows mobile operating systems. I have used three of these operating systems and i clearly prefer Linux or its Ubuntu version. However, the home appliance management tablet at $900 is to my viewpoint a bit pricey for the average homeowners. don't you think so?

Hmm, I think it's quite the opposite. The "poor" might need it more to save every penny, while the "rich" don't really care about a few hundred bucks for energy. And it seems that it's a well kept secret that 400W vanity lights and 1000W outdoor lighting don't come cheap.
