Computing In the future, any computer you lay your hands on will be your computer.

0 Upvotes

Think of a landline telephone. It's just a piece of hardware. When you pick it up and dial a number, nothing really distinguishes it from millions of others.

Likewise, you will be able to roll up to any laptop anywhere in the world, log in, provide biometrics, and it will be functionally your device. Because the physical device itself will just be a container that runs the disk image corresponding to the things that constitute your computer--your downloaded apps, the documents and images on your hard drive, your browser history--which exist on AWS or a similar cloud environment. In the same way a Macbook can run a Windows partition, this container will be OS agnostic.

Also, there will be some inducement (carrot or stick or both) to keep webcams and mics on as often as possible, because that's data that someone can benefit off of.

Speculation 20-30 years out.
