I really don't like the acronym for that cat one, it sounds much too unsafe.

I've been thinking about making a backronym for the new name of PC

Productivity, Entertainment, N' Intellectual System

It's a work in progress. I need a better term for I.

It is kind of outdated.

Not too long ago people were making topics linkin to an article saying that the consumer PC market was shrinking and only the business PC market was expanding.

What those number did not reflect was that the "PC" is just being replaced by other devices with overlapping functionality. At some point, reserving the term "PC" for a specific form factor is kind of odd, if other devices are more and more starting to offer pretty much the same functionality. Why is a x86 tablet not a PC?

I agree, TC. It should be shortened to C.
#18LordSeiferPosted 12/12/2013 4:45:00 AM
C. would be ambiguous to just the letter c

better go with C:
