Here’s an idea so simple it’s kind of shocking it doesn’t already exist. We have these super powerful tiny computing devices that walk around with us. Why not make one so that when you get home, it turns into a proper desktop or laptop computer? Well there is one company attempting to do this. Ubuntu is hoping to manufacture the Edge with the help of a crowd funding campaign on the website Indiegogo. Could it be a contender? Molly Wood of CNET explains what this device is and if it could be the future of computing.
