Online Web Operating System

Web-OS and HandHeld Terminal - If the server is the cloud and the VT-100 Terminal is your Tablet computer. Technically the OS is in the Cloud. Think about it.

The term Web-OS was coined by me as early as 2002 in a Post called "The Browser is the Operating System" and In "Nomadic Computing" with the small image show far below.

First Offline Slow Bloated Apps prone to virus and crashes are going to be phased out in a few decades in favor of Web-Apps. But in 20-30 Years the Desktop OS is also going to Commence its Departure.

I foresee it is likely that future Hand Held Computers and PC may not have an OS at all. The GUI will stream down from a Friendly Neighborhood Computer Services Provider CSP.The Keystrokes and Mouse

Move OS to Cloud

Clicks will Stream Up to the CSP Servers. The CSP Server Farm of Mac-OSX, Linux or Free BSD will serve the GUI and monitor your keystrokes. So no OS means no Virus, no updates, no crashes, and unlimited hard disk space at server. You can install your programs remotely and burn your data on CD or Thumb-Drive locally. I think roughly 35% of productivity loss is due to updates, virus, re-installation and Upgrades. This can be brought down to 5% or even less. :~)

All Things Internet - TCP-IP

This is in continuation of the write up earlier called a new OS. All peripherals should have a URL, all components like keyboard, mouse, harddisk, CDROM drive, monitor also should have URLs, like mouse can be /mouse then harddisk can be /hdd. if you need two mice then /mouse1and /mouse2.

Computer Data Interface

All except the cpu are peripherals, a harddisk bought from the market will be just tcp/ip enabled no drivers, no software, place it on the desk and log in with your /hdd from your /keyboard. the hdd will allow unlimited optic lan logins. The cpu can be a no connector crystal ball like device with ferrite underside for power. and will be at the corner of the desk looking like a paperweight and do the job of a smart router. Most of the devices will be talking to each other even without the cpu being aware of that.

Apply TCP-IP to one and all - y2k

The peripherals will be same for any OS any Hardware, you can even keep one cpu running linux and another win2k beside each other and all work seamlessly. In case you need more view get a tcp/ip optic monitor from the next table and log on and you will have double the view area, and while you are at it the guy from the next table will take back the monitor you would not even notice.

Embedding JS-CSS in a Webpage Template

Now many third part scripts like Stats, Ads, Videos, Gadgets and Ajax elements are available for embedding in the template of a service or community-network template page.

Average user cannot tackle code snippets and inadvertently introduce errors, while adding the code to his template html source.

More important is that this snippets will change syntax as the webapps evolve and the service api changes or even new web standards.

Embedding JS-CSS in a Webpage Template

It may be best to make this snippet invisible to users and available to programmers if needed. Even the code coming on the browser client html makes the page cluttered and there is a bandwidth element too.


Billy Daisy and Gregory

Gregory G. Leedberg created Daisy for DOS which evolved to Billy on Windows. These are AI Chat Bots that brought me hours of AI flavored happiness in the year 2000.



Billy Project
Even though these programs serve purposes which may make them seem like toys, the artificial intelligence developed to support these programs is actually quite advanced. The goal is to advance this AI within these programs, so that it may eventually be applied to real-world problems.

Dictabird and the Flintstones

First time in the history of AI in the year 1994 they recreated Stone age History in the form of the Flintstones Movie. This is an Interesting Life Form. The Ancient DictaBird.



I would prefer one that that may be useful on the Desktop like the DictaBird. So an Interactive desktop communication helper in the form of a Extra-Smart bird. Like Daisy perhaps. Something Fuzzzy or with AI like


Dilbert Dupey and Talking Parrots

There was the time when Peedy The Talking Parrot made his appearance on my Win 95 Desktop. It was the first version of BonziBuddy. This parrot was quite dumb but did interact with inputs.

Chrome OS based Browsette at $200

What is just a Browser in a SSD riding over a Skeletal Firmware Extension, just enough to help a browser fire a screen and link up with minimal hardware. It's a Browsette indeed.

Probably when Chrome OS arrives or even Linux it may be possible. A tablet like device, when touched, a browser that is live always. No OS, No Desktop, No wallpaper.All Web.

Chrome OS based Browsette at $200

Such a Browsette. You can Browse and Nothing  else. It is the file manager, it is the desktop. It is just a Browser glued on to hardware and Rom. This will bring down the cost, it could be sold at 200 $. People may buy it as an additional gadget even if they own a computer. It can be used as an ebook reader, media player or communicator, even a newspaper. All thru the Browser.

A console, a terminal, a status or ticker indicator. It may be used in nice numbers, like each home may need around five or six Browsettes.

Android HandHelds

This is an aggregation of delabs design notes in relation to Tablets like Android devices. The notes apply for tablets of other OS types too.

Use an App for 5 inch Mobile 3G devices. Websites for above 7 Inches WiFi devices like Tablets, Notebooks and Computers. -  delabs was Promoting Tablets from 2005 to 2015.

Devices with Screen Sizes Seven Inches and above in any OS are usable and practical for Viewing Websites, Blogs, CMS and WebApps. Hence it may not be practical to make your websites or blogs to work on small screens, as not much work can be done.

Android HandHelds

Dedicated Mobile versions of sites with summaries or updates, like it was long ago, may be useful but may need to be replaced with an app. In other words smaller devices like your Five inch smartphone on a Slim Battery with no mouse or large keyboard, on an expensive data network, is not a full fledged business or browsing tool. The way to approach this is only with Apps suited for such screens, usability and networks.

5-6 inch and Less Use Only App  --|||--  7 inch to 30 inch Responsive with Font Zoom  -- |||--  TV Zoom All & Font Zoom+
