funny but what does Bill Gates have to do with this. Microsoft only ever made the operating system and never built computers.

Yes , it seems like that your new PC is outdated almost as soon as you get him home from a shop :x

#7 Does not surprise me snotr has some of the worst video encoding online.

I live in rural Ireland and I'm on 3mbit and I can stream 720hd youtube yet I can't watch a single clip on this site with out waiting for it to buffer.

It prolly costs them a lot of visitors but they do not seem to care.

#3 They are outdated before they even arrived at the shop.

Most of the problems on ridiculous update cycle is programming. When computers get better, you can do more stuff with them. More stuff you do, better equipment it needs to have. The real answer is to force programmers to do their work on the minimal setup, not the monster workstations.. The thing is, it's then slow and the constant need to grow infinitely, is what is driving for speed in manufacturing. Ie, the software houses can get away for running their computer on half speed while the majority of the users will have to use a lot bigger percentage of energy to run them. It should be that the major calculations that require massive amounts of power need to be done at the manufacturing end. It's doable but slows done new product launches. We could easily use more memory than CPU power on our end, if that's what it takes (it does mean larger installer packages, less compression, ready calculated massive tables etc..)

You can compare it to web and streaming. You can encode sloppily and fast once and force people to use multiple times more power to run it. For ex flash videos, or certain MKV encoding methods. Very light weight for the server, very very very hard on end user. Just compare CPU power needed to playback 1080p on Youtube and the same stuff on bluray...

It's like your car would have to refine the oil needed to produce the gasoline individually, which would mean immense savings on manufacturing stage.... Now we are just using more oil cause that refinery is freaking massive and only gets bigger.

#13 you did not just compare the 1080p videos on Youtube with 1080p videos on Blu-ray? I must be reading it wrong, because I can't believe that anyone thinks they are the same quality!

It reminds me of the fact that microsoft stops supporting windows xp at April 8th
