Creating the Future of Personal Computing?


"Imagine a world where your next personal computing device is the last one that you would ever need to buy. Where you would never need to worry about operating systems, software patches, or viruses. Where you always had enough processing power, memory, storage, and top-of-the-line graphics. Where you could access all of the very best software applications, regardless of their platform. Where you had a constant connection to all your favourite digital services, and your battery lasted for days, perhaps even weeks, of full-on use. Sounds good, doesn't it? Well, this is the world of the Stream Tone. A world that does not exist in some far off future; this could be, figuratively speaking, our world a mere five minutes from now. All that is needed to make it a reality is the creative convergence of certain technologies that are already available and in use today."
The STREAM TONE: The Future of Personal Computing?



Let’s create that world together!



What is C.R.P.C.?

CRPC, or Comprehensive Remote Personal Computing, is a term that is used to describe the complete and total provision of all required personal computing services from remotely-located sources. CRPC is comprehensive because it is capable of replacing not just some but all local personal computing functionalities with fully-viable remote alternatives, and also because it will be a remote personal computing solution that is suitable for use by everyone, everywhere, including the billions of people that have not yet been able to fully embrace the Internet, personal computing, and Web. CRPC also marks the point in time when a global technology ecosystem, comprised of devices, protocols, services, and telecommunications, which is sufficiently capable of practically and affordably supporting a comprehensive remote personal computing paradigm, finally exists. CRPC is not yet practical but it is definitely possible. CRPC may be enabled, in the future, by the Stream Tone.

What is the Stream Tone?

The Stream Tone is a concept that was introduced in the book "The STREAM TONE: The Future of Personal Computing?", ISBN: 9781784620813 (paperback), ISBN: 9781784620868 (hardback), ISBN: 9781784627928 (ebook), Website: The Stream Tone is an open-source initiative that aims to re-invent personal computing for the 21st century, and, by so doing, make the world a better, more equal, place. The Stream Tone can help to bridge the digital divide, connect the unconnected, and bring the Internet, personal computing, and Web to the next billion people. In very simple terms, the Stream Tone is about ensuring that the future is more evenly distributed. It is a bold goal, to be sure, but one that can definitely be achieved if we all work together to make it happen. As the old saying goes, many hands make light work. Please help if you can. Thank you.

What is StreamTone.Org?

StreamTone.Org is the home of the Stream Tone Community Forum (STCF), a digital platform for discussing the design, development, and deployment of the Stream Tone under free and open-source principles; a process that is very likely to take many years to complete. The STCF can also be used to discuss the book “The STREAM TONE: The Future of Personal Computing?”. The STCF is an integral part of the Stream Tone, and is described within this book. Use of the STCF is free-of-charge but there are some very simple, but sensible, entry conditions. Real user names are not required. The STCF is moderated.
