Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
if a PC really stands for Personal Computing device.
Lets look at what that would include.
Traditional IBM Clones (running any OS)
All cellular phones (ever seen one without a calculator?)
All Media Centers
All Smart TV's
Hell all smart appliances including ovens, microwave ovens, A/C units, Light systems, Elevators, security systems, CCTV set ups, etc
Some newer model cars.
watches they all calculate
configurable remote controls
I could go on but whatever.
I could imagine if someone wanted to they could throw segues into the auto-mobile sector along with cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, motorized wheel chairs, etc... Statistics can be manipulated easily by definition. A Raspberry Pi is a PC without a monitor those are selling like hot-cakes would they end up bumping someone out of the top ten next year?
I do have a much higher than average IQ (170+) which is overly inflated due to having a near eidetic memory which inflates my score quite a bit.
So lets look at what this does for me.
I am good at puzzles.
I am good at solving problems.
I can grasp concepts far quicker than your average person.
That's about it.
How does this hurt me.
I get lazy.
I get bored easily.
I am very apathetic to learning through traditional means.
Does that make me smart? Not really I know people with far lower IQ scores who I consider far more intelligent then myself.
I look at it like this a high IQ means you have a fast processor. That's it if you have nothing on your hard-drive(knowledge) and no programs(formulas) then what good does it do you.
I have to say not much.
So when it comes down to it IQ is just something morons brag about, Otherwise, its useless if you don't do anything with it.
You can also note that my grammar sucks and my spelling is atrocious. However, I can solve a Sudoku like no body's business.
