The Inquirer has some interesting news about the unreleased Surface Hub 2, Microsoft's digital whiteboard, collaberation tool and the perfect way to display maps in a pen and paper RPG.  The new device uses a cartridge to hold the CPU, which is removeable and will allow you to upgrade the processor inside, once AMD and Intel release CPUs in that form factor anyway.  The basic idea is to allow you to upgrade your Hub 2S to a Hub 2X, the 2S is designed for in-house Exchange setups while the 2X is for those using Exchange online. 

There are of course other reasons to upgrade the CPU in your Surface Hub 2, which we will see investigated in a few years, assuming these CPUs do hit the market.

"The idea is that when 2020 comes around you'll be able to lock and load your Surface Hub 2 with an upgraded CPU once Intel or AMD has got them ready."

That's.... actually pretty cool for something like this? Or what they're generally meant to be used for anyways.

Or well I guess I was thinking if this stuff ever becomes cheap enough to replace SMART boards in schools or whatever, if it hasn't happened already. I have no idea.

(Though I read that "Promethean ActivPanels" are the new thing?)

Schools are generally very slow to upgrade things. Well, public ones anyways.

"an upgraded CPU once Intel or AMD has got them ready."

I believe it should be...

"an upgraded CPU once Intel or AMD has gotten them ready.

Or maybe...

"an upgraded CPU once Intel or AMD has them ready."

I'm not picky The Inquirer can go with either one.

Excuse me, I'm late for my Grammer meeting of Nationalist Socialists.
