  • Replace my cable box with a Wyse thin client

    Status: New

    This past week, I had to call my cable television provider (Cox Communications) to come out and replace for a 2nd time, my high end cable box called "Countour" by Cisco. First of all, I think the new Countour box is great, provides much richer UX and dramatically improves the overall viewing experience. I also want to add that this idea is in no way a knock on Cox, as they provide excellent customer service. The trouble is that after 45 minutes of watching this poor tech replace my box - have it not work - then go through process to try another cable box - I realized that this is just out-dated way of my cable company servicing their technology and me, the customer. My idea is that Dell should get into the business of creating an infrastructure for cable telivision providers that would be a combination of a cloud infrastructure that would host each cable customers account, including DVR, preferences, movie purchases, etc and a front end Dell Wyse thin client. If that were available today and I was a customer, my initial call to my cable provider would have never happened because the hardware in my home (cable box) would be highly reliable, energy efficient Dell Wyse thin client. Software glitches - no longer an issue because the image would be in one central location and maintained directly by my cable provider.  The technology exists today and maybe this solution is already in the works. Just had to take moment to put this out there if there was a chance we all could avoid a call to the cable guy! Thanks for your consideration.

  • Easy booting

    Status: New

    Hi Gentlemen, My idea is to Boot a Windows PC from a USB drive with windows and applications already installed on it,since only operating system I've seen using this method is the Bunet linex,( as my friend told me). It have many advantages no viruses can transfer to a cluster of computers in institutes , no software licensing issues is required, and the hosting PC resources will be limited no HD or. Small one no licensing for the PC and more advantages can be seen once starting the prototype.

  • PC with more than 0 and 1

    Status: New

    Computers work with binary language, ie on and off. My idea is to make a computer with energy variation is computed, thereby besides of bits 0 and 1, with different add power range, more bits than only on and off is possible. A machine language more elaborate  improving  its performance. The problem of interaction between man and machine due to communication difficulties for both man and machine to because of the distance of both.

    It would be nice for Dell to have an advanced account executive that could resolve customer issues quickly.  It is a real pain trying to resolve issues when you have to go thru an endless loop of customer service reps that cant reslove issues that are the result of poor quality control and customer service.  There is nothing worse than getting the run around and feel like your issues are not being addressed.  Just a thought.
