Another huge area of wonder...Microsoft's HoloLens. Is this the real deal or just another Windows 8 style failure?

Here is the article and video. http://www.komando.com/happening-now/30 ... sci-fi/all

P.S. Jorge, your "Go ahead. Make my day." meme in this Windows 10 For Free? Should I Get It? thread in reply to Skagon's post is awesome!! I had a great laugh and I'm sure everyone else agrees with it as well!! I didn't want to step on it without a substantive comment. Too bad there is no Like button. :D

Personally I think thar 'Hololens' thing in Windows 10 *might be* a major break-through. If it works properly, it's a simple but very effective solution to holograms/virtual reality vs. the real world.

It looks promising, but one can never tell for sure with Microsoft. I wonder how much they'll charge.

I also wonder if this technology is susceptible to viruses or is it impossible to get one in the same way that a TV or monitor cannot have a virus.

Nothing is impossible. If it can be done, it can also be hacked into.

If it is designed to connect to the net, then all bets are off. I'm still unclear if this thing is a closed system and is nothing more than a futuristic version of a projector which obviously cannot have a virus.

If it is a closed system, there is a much greater chance of it being awesome. Just think, something like that being impervious to hackers!

OK long story short...

I am of the "older" generation.

I have been a musician since I was 14 and by this time one would hope pretty good at it.
HOWEVER - when my children were babies, I needed to put food on the table every night of the week, so a great month followed by a lean one was unacceptable, so I went back to UNI and studied I.T and did it until they grew up. I was a musician doing I.T not the other way around :)

MICROSOFT - Is Evolutionary and as a comparison
IBM is Revolutionary.
Microsoft builds on what exists they copy and improve. RARELY do they create something that does not already exist. this has been true in I.T for decades.
[I have CCNA, MCSE and many other tickets that I stopped upgrading when I quit I.T when my kids grew up :)]

e.g move the leters by 1 - VMS - WNT [WindowsNT]
IBM - HAL [hardware Abstraction Layer]
ALSO - Active directory is a DIRECT ripoff of NDS [Novell Diirectory Services - I was Novell certified as well]. It still to this day does not do with Inherited rights what NDS was doing in version 3 and 4 and that was many years ago.
Cheers
