The death of the PC is right around the corner. I’ll say by 2015 at the latest.
In this post by Adam Hartung, he discusses how the iPhone is providing the steam to obsolete the PC. Because the iPhone with its wide array of innovative apps, and other devices like it, are creating new uses that cannot be matched by the PC, it’s doomed to obscurity.
I’ll go further that the combination of innovative apps from a hand held device like the iPhone and the decoupling of the viewing screen will be the combination that will kill the PC. In previous posts, I’ve shown how screens can be projected in glasses.
Or if you don’t want to watch on your glasses and prefer to project on yourself:
Either way, it eliminates the complaint that screens are too small to get the same amount of information as a PC. The downside is, unless we can control our computers with our minds, we’re all going to look like idiots waving our fingers around to google directions to the nearest Starbucks.
