    "seriously folks.use your imagination.even if they could do you think most people would want their private homes on display for the entire internet? " You mean like all things internet - like all of facebook - people are stupid and self absorbed, so yes the do want to put all this #$%$ out there - but I do agree with your general sentiment that Tango is POC and will be initially targeted at niche spaces.

    Certainly - good news. After reading some more I realized that they unveiled it at GTC, as you mentioned, which would align it much more with NVIDIA. It seems that NVIDIA has a pretty strong partner in google these days - which, as far as I see it, is very mutually beneficial.

    Ahh so one of their partners is bsquare. We've worked with them, but I think they are a freescale and Qualcomm partner/solutions provider. Not exceptionally good news for NVIDIA though bsquare is ending their distrubtion of snapdragon mobile dev platforms.

    Pretty sick! Based on all the talk and investment NVIDIA has put in on computer vision and the visual ecosystem for it's tegra, and cuda platforms - it seems like it would be right up their alley. The Jetson was pretty much conceived for this purpose. Two application processors though? That is a bit suspicious.

    Shield 2 is coming? According to some websites

    They've said repeatedly they don't want to do such and my only guess is that they aren't in the infrastructure business as well as I am sure they don't want to be put in the precarious position of competing with their customers.

    That being said - it seems that even the small trial they have in SJ is performing admirably and in most cases exceeding expectations. The real question for me is that assuming the prior statement is true, why the hell hasn't google, amazon or better yet MS stepped in. MS would be the best candidate as they are transition to a services and devices business and already have the infrastructure with Azure, a comparatively loosing investment in selling XBox's, and the capital and user base to boot. Makes little sense why they don't at jump on board (there were rumors a year or so ago) especially with Sony trying to field PS-Now. I have to believe that something is up. Either they [NVIDIA] have some deal in the works with a major player which includes MS, or that their relationship with MS has become seriously strained.

    Again, NVIDIA owns all the IP and has the experience to complete that services and devices ecosystem. MS-Shield or xTablet and GRID. Go figure!
