Post-Computer Era

PREDICTING THE DEATH OF PERSONAL COMPUTERS

Steve Jobs’ was outlining a vision and agenda for the post-PC era during his stage appearance with Bill Gates at the D conference, Jobs said the “radical rethinking of computing will happen in post-PC devices,” such as the iPod and its successor iPhone.

The first Apple Computers were launched thirty years ago. Apple informed at MacWorld in January that Apple Computer will be Apple Inc. in the future. They started with the computer and is now moving into consumer products.


THE MOBILE GANG

Motorola, Nokia, Palm, Microsoft, RIM, HTC, Samsung and many others have the same vision. Jobs has said that the iPhone software is five years ahead of competitors, and on June 29 we see how that claim holds up.

With one percent per year market share growth it will take 36 years to overtake Nokia. But that's maybe not Apple's first goal. Jobs wants to be a trend-setter and the mobile hand-held devices are givining him a second chance. The first road to stardome was blocked bu the IBM PC and Microsoft Windows-DOS.

YEARS AHEAD?

Over the next several years, continually enhanced by Moore’s Law, the smarter, memory-laden, high-bandwidth phone, Web browser, video and audio player–more consisely, the handheld mobile device or mobile companion–will become the primary computer for billions of people on the planet.
