ASUS Chariman interviewed on Amazon, Tablets, and the future of tablets

I think ASUS is one of the most under rated PC venders only at no. 5 they make the best hardware for the money--that's my take on the company. So when I saw this this article I thought I read it. It's very light but very insightful and down to earth interview.


Jump to the end of the interview to read what he said about Jobs.

Here’s Jonney! ASUS’ Chairman on Ultrabooks, the Amazon Threat, and What’s Next for Tablets


Transformer to cover different kinds of scenarios. Next the Transformer 2 will come in, and it will be very thin and powerful.



L: Are you worried about Amazon as a competitor with its new tablet?

JS: I believe that Amazon has the advantage because of the content. ...

... I’m not going to try to sell content, because content is just that. I think we have to measure what we can do the best. We put more emphasis on improving the user experience...

(more...)

Isn't Steve Jobs also a Buddhist?

I don't know, I know little of Steve Jobs, mainly just followed his career path and choices. He has had some brilliant moves, mainly in his younger years.

I wonder if he was trying to insult him twice or he was not aware he was a Buddhist.

Steve Jobs is deceased. He died today. RIP
I have never been a fan boy of Apple but, his visions made technology progress faster than it could have.
I love Asus Hardware. My Computer uses a Asus Rampage III MOBO.

They did, they even modified the title.

I'll update my post, can a mod please update the title to remove the Steve Job reference.

Thank you,
