People realize how s*** is Android is for productivity. I'm that part of the group. I'm looking to switch from Android for work.

PUBG selling nearly 23 million copies probably played a part in that, it's now the second highest selling PC game of all time. It still is nowhere near the multi-plat titles like Tetris or something but just coming in second to Minecraft is pretty damn impressive.

Prebuilt market, it looks like, not custom builds.

Is anyone actually surprised the PC market's been contracting, though? Of my extended family, the only ones who still own PCs are gamers or require one for work. Tablets and smartphones have largely supplanted laptops for casual browsing and email.

Probably why the industry, as a whole, didn't want to announce Spectre & Meltdown until immediately after the holiday season, despite knowing about it in time to warn people they should wait a couple months.

It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.
