The PC is dead. Gartner wishes you luck, vendors

The non-connection business use of local office computers was quite low pre-internet. Most (about a 10 to one ratio) of the computer "like" university devices in the mid 80s were used to connect to somewhere which quickly meant the Internet as it became available late in the late 80s. All the people I knew who had computers at home in the 80s used them for games or bulletin-board serving/access hardly business like activities pre-internet.

The number of my IT department colleagues who truly need more that a second screen and a "real" keyboard in addition to their laptop or tablet is about 1 in 70 (while about 1 in 4 think they do).

Meh

Google Calendar and 6.1

Well the broken shared repeating calendar entries did not return, but first attempt at editing did not cause the event to disappear so 6.1.2 is a modest success.
