PCs being pushed aside in Japan
Came across this interesting AP story. I feel that highly mobile and user friendly narrow-function devices will over-take the PC as the primary computing devices for consumers. Increasing network bandwidth allows most of the transaction processing to occur in the the cloud and leaves the user devices to provide a great experience. Clearly, the generic multi-purpose PCs do not do the best job of that and users are increasingly attracted to narrow-function electronic devices.
