Marvell Introduces Plug Computers, Nobody Cares.

The launch of the Plug Computer is news only this guy cares about.

The launch of the Plug Computer is news only this guy cares about.

I’ll admit it, when it came to the fierce HDDVD/BluRay battle, I bet large on HDDVD.  I remember buying the movie, 300 in HDDVD format.  Four hours later, HDDVD died.  I sat in my TV room and unraveled emotionally thinking about how dumb I was.  Now I watch the semi-naked warriors featured in 300 every Monday night just to feel like I’m not that big of a loser.

Pretty sad, right?

Even sadder is a new invention that the semiconductor company, Marvell is launching called a “Plug Computer.”  A plug computer will be a tiny computer that you plug into a wall socket.  You’re supposed to store your files in a variety of these little devices, which is all connected to a nerdy network that you can tap into anywhere you are to retrieve your files.  Each “plug computer” is slated to cost roughly 50 dollars.

Are computer geeks really that insane that they think the average person wants to usurp every outlet in their house or apartment to plug in a tiny computer?

Apparently yes.  Marvell launched this device today, according the Wall Street Journal.  Again, this is probably the only blog that cares.  And it’s mostly because of my lingering resentment towards new technology that I’m always wrong on.  If you excuse me, I have to restart 300 now.

    Do you mean ‘HD DVD’?

  • Brilliant! Yes, indeed. But now you can probably see why I’ve been wrong on a lot of things in life.
