Chief Technology Officer
IBM Middle East and Africa

It’s amazing to me to think that August 12 marks the 30th anniversary of the IBM Personal Computer. The announcement helped launch a phenomenon that changed the way we work, play and communicate.  Little did we expect to create an industry that ultimately peaked at more than 300 million unit sales per year. I’m proud that I was one of a dozen IBM engineers who designed the first machine and was fortunate to have lead subsequent IBM PC designs through the 1980s.  It may be odd for me to say this, but I’m also proud IBM decided to leave the personal computer business in 2005, selling our PC division to Lenovo. While many in the tech industry questioned IBM’s decision to exit the business at the time, it’s now clear that our company was in the vanguard of the post-PC era.

I, personally, have moved beyond the PC as well. My primary computer now is a tablet. When I helped design the PC, I didn’t think I’d live long enough to witness its decline. But, while PCs will continue to be much-used devices, they’re no longer at the leading edge of computing. They’re going the way of the vacuum tube, typewriter, vinyl records, CRT and incandescent light bulbs.

PCs are being replaced at the center of computing not by another type of device—though there’s plenty of excitement about smart phones and tablets—but by new ideas about the role that computing can play in progress. These days, it’s becoming clear that innovation flourishes best not on devices but in the social spaces between them, where people and ideas meet and interact. It is there that computing can have the most powerful impact on economy, society and people’s lives.

The story of IBM’s involvement in the PC market and foray into the post-PC era illustrates one of the core traits of our company: we’re always on the lookout for the next big thing. We anticipate changes and try to get out ahead of them—rather than waiting and reacting defensively. IBM has been on a path of constant transformation ever since we launched our turnaround in the mid-1990s. It’s one of the reasons the company is performing at its all-time peak level in our centennial year.

Today, IBM brings value to customers and society through an integrated family of businesses and technologies. We conduct fundamental scientific research, design some of the world’s most advanced chips and computers, provide software that companies and governments run on, and offer business consulting, IT services and solutions that enable our clients to transform themselves continuously, just like we do. Our Smarter Planet agenda, launched three years ago, elevated our game. We now see our mission as helping to solve the world’s most complex problems—making the world work better.

An essential part of our continuous transformation is a strategy of leaving commodity businesses and expanding in higher-value markets. Over the past 10 years, in addition to leaving the PC business, we also exited disk drives and printers. We invest heavily in R&D, about a $6 billion per year–producing major breakthroughs such as the question-and-answer technology in the Watson computer, which in February defeated former champions on the game show Jeopardy! At the same time, we’re building up our service and software capabilities through acquisitions, especially in analytics. Since 2001, IBM bought more than 127 companies for a combined total of $33 billion.

In addition, the company is transforming itself into a globally integrated enterprise, which has improved productivity and is driving our expansion in the world’s fastest growing markets.

This on-going transformation has had a profoundly positive effect on the company’s performance. IBM’s pre-tax income margin was 11.1% in 2004, the last full year in which we owned the PC business, and rose to 18.9% last year. Debunking conventional wisdom, IBM’s growth market businesses produce profit margins that are equal to or better than those in mature markets.

Just as I recently traded in my PC for a tablet computer, I have also changed my role at IBM. After more than a decade in IBM Research, I am now the chief technology officer for IBM Middle East and Africa, based in Dubai. I’m focused, in particular, on bringing new IBM technology solutions to bear in Africa and helping to develop the continent’s IT skills and computer science workforce. While the PC revolution has had a tremendous impact on the world, I believe that the work that IBM and others are doing in Africa could have an even bigger impact over the long haul.

These days, many of the people of Africa are empowered by a sense of hope. Thanks to improvements in the national economies and a flood of investment, more than one billion people have a chance for a better life, and corporations like IBM can help them achieve their dreams. I feel lucky that I got a chance to play a role in the PC revolution. I’m doubly lucky that I have a second shot at changing the world—by helping Africa fulfill its potential and helping Africans to gain the opportunities they deserve. That’s what progress is all about.

There are lots of people that discuss using torrent to transfer

And while you cannot alter the past, we have the power to alter our attitude regarding it, hence the actual way it ultimately

The death or decline of the PC has been greatly exaggerated. There is an authority and stability associated with the desktop PC, and a sense of flimsiness and temporariness associated with the tablet. Try doing any serious work on a tablet, and you will immediately get what I mean. Not even laptops can easily replace a solid PC, talk less of the tablet. The PC will definitely evolve, but it is highly unlikely it will ever be replaced.

I truly respect Steve Jobs for his small contribution to the personal electronics industry with the iPod, iPad and iPhone. Sure, I’ve purchased and used Apple products — up until the late 90s when it came time for me to get some real work done beyond a clever “user experience.”

So, with all due respect, let’s not go overboard into iDolatry now that he’s died. Let’s not raise him above unhyped actual inventors and genuine technological innovators.

Once the media hype and dust settles, it will be abundantly clear to anyone who checks facts and the history of the past 30 years that Steve Jobs was only a “mastermind” at marketing inventions conceived, created and developed by real inventors and innovators — like Douglas Ingelbart, Chuck Peddle, Mark Dean, Dennis Moeller and the many other unheralded genuine geniuses at IBM, Xerox PARC and around the world.

Unfortunately, there is a generation of consumers that have become uninformed Apple zombies, and believe that Jobs invented or perfected personal computing and entertainment — like P.T. Barnum invented magical midgets and sword swallowers. There is a big difference between invention and innovation, versus marketing and branding — Steve Jobs was a “genius” in the latter two tents.

Yes, it’s true how the irony hits home, as portrayed in one of Apple’s first TV commercials that presented a mass of “1984″ zombie-like slaves who had to be freed from big brother groupthink — though it appears that Apple consumers need to be emancipated from believing Apple makes the best and most open (a.k.a: actual user controlled and customized) devices for free thinking and creative users.

When they do a little homework and check the facts on the past and future of their gadgets, they’ll stop buying into the groupthink corporate marketing hype that companies like Apple have branded and perfected — to near cult status.

True free thinkers and creative people don’t iDol worship. Moreover, they know better not to annually waste money on the same brand of overpriced disposable consumer products — products that will not give them anymore of a better or enlightening user experience than a small one knob transistor radio.

I have a burning question for the industry experts. All the big firms are pushing cloud computing through a browser and pushing tablet’s. I’ve worked in IT for 22 years now I am visually impaired along with most of my friends. Some of which are completely blind. Can you tell me how these people are going to use touchpads which rely on some vision? Also going back to the cloud computing. What garantees does the industry have in place that our data will be fully secure from hackers?

Personally I don’t think the PC is dead at all. Yes tablets are OK but you do not get the same functionality or flexibility with these devices that you do with the PC.

Myself and Friends will not be joining the CLOUD system for personal use especially due to the rescent events with the Sony site being hacked and the News International Scandal.

What concerns me mainly that with the industry pushing more interaction which is great to a point the problem I can see is that disabled people will be left behind in all this.

I do have a Windows Phone 7 smart phone and an HP touchpad myself but I use my laptop for more than I use the touchpad or the smartphone. However, I use my laptop far more than I use the touchpad because I prefer to use the keyboard as I find it more accurate.

At work I use Dolphin SuperNova on our company’s Windows XP machine to help with day to day work.

I would very much appreciate direct contact from the likes of Microsoft, IBM and My Employer HP Enterprise Services on how the industry is going to move forward specifically with Accessibility.

Best Regards

Hi Mark,

Very interesting reading, but I am not really sure if I can agree.

The most important question to start with is – what exactly is a PC? Is it the old composite system that was developed 30 years ago?
Or is it rather the concept of 1 user = 1 device (no matter what the form factor is) compared to obsolete n users = 1 device (mainframe) concept?

As I see it, the “Post-PC” era is more like “PC+” era. The major difference is going to be the different approach:
1 user = n devices

And of course ability to use same services (and it’s all about services) from all devices, so it makes sense to use server-based computing rather than client-based computing.

Some of my thoughts on this topic are summarized here:

The real issue is that journalism is going the way of the dodo bird. Writing as a professional requires supporting references/citations which substantiate your statements as fact – not subjective statements by someone claiming to be an authority on a given subject. Did you also invent the internet with Al Gore? The development of the modern Personal Computer was the accomplishment of countless individuals – not one person.

Most people on this planet wish to be monetarily successful. In order to be successful, one typically needs put away their toys and start using y’know big-boy tools like grown-ups. Which means, I could care less about the latest app on your iPhone. Or the book you read on your tablet. Apple has little to no enterprise/business applications. Which means it can be largely considered a toy. A toy with cutesy cartoon graphics – a toy with a price tag that does not appear to reflect its internal components. Not to mention the cost of service required for many of these toys. When you, the American citizen, start getting serious about your economic prosperity – perhaps then your economy will rebound. Start making purchasing decisions based on technical facts rather then trends. It means putting away your Twitter feed for a while, logging out of Facebook, coming back to the real world. If you wish to be successful in this life, you need to utilize tools with actual benefits – tools that can actually meet your needs. Many if not all of these toys are not designed to serve you the customer but rather the bottom line of major corporations. Ah look what trends have convinced you to consume. Maybe we could bring back Velcro while we are at it? Apple would very likely not exist if it were not for Microsoft bailing them out in 1997. Modern, cutting edge technologies that benefit business exist on, you guessed it – Microsoft Operating Systems not on the Apple OS. And this isn’t hype generated by school kids with their shiny new toys, typing away on their little blogs. These are facts. Microsoft may not be “cool” right now – but that will change.

Matlab and CATIA won’t run on worthless hardware like the iPad’s, even with remote servers. Poor engineers… Moreover it’s just a joke to imagine to take the risk of putting R&D or the whole a company’s accounting on the cloud because some “visionary” told you PCs were no longer fashionable, when there are billions or industrial/military secrets at stake.

Therefore my point of vue is that this IBM Guy might well be fashionable and all but also totally irrealistic. Workstations are necessary and you can’t replace them with toys

Prootwadl,

For a tablet to “enter” the corporate network, a change in company rules/views must take place. I used to do my work on a desktop then on a laptop and no doubt could move to a tablet if/when stubborn IT “experts” decide to change. That, my fellow blogger, will not happen until a new generation of IT people enters the corporate world. I’ve already lived through some serious changing times everytime this natural employee turnover took place.

Now, with the ever looming cloud, tablets need just the right fast connections to tap into powerful applications residing in dedicated servers around the world, change being pushed by the likes of apple, ibm, google, ms, oracle, ups, fedex and a few select others. The evolution taking place will make the PC as we’re so used to know obsolete indeed. Just like former British PM Harold Wilson stated, “He who rejects change is the architect of decay”. Those refusing to change will end up replaced by those embracing and thriving with it.

As a tiny example, recently South Africa inagurated its first high-speed train system this past summer while the debate and unwillingness to change here in USA have kept innovations from American soil. Heck, in Florida, their governor refused to back a plan to establish a high speed line linking Orlando and Tampa, a project that could have been easily expanded to other large cities like Miami, Jacksonville, Tallahassee. Except, that it will not happen unless a new visionary governor is elected.

I’ve embraced the advent of computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets and have always looked for an excuse to move to the new form factor and exploit its advantages. To the naysayers above, criticize, rant and nag if that is all what you are capable of.

A tablet is not more than a an underpower PC with high mobility but without real keyboard, small display, slow network connectivity, low computing power. And as such a device is perfect for underpower tasks like read email, send short messages, surf the web, read books, etc. Maybe not with iOS or Android but with the future Windows 8 (or even W7), plug in a keyboard and you’ll have a full featured PC

First of all, I wouldn’t say it’s all rubbish but what he is saying isn’t entirely true, or skewed. He says PC is the past but he’s still using a tablet-PC. A tablet is still a PC. What is happening is that PC’s will be changing shapes, having more variety, not just a tower or laptop.

Anyways, this stuff he’s saying isn’t news at all. We all know technology is always improving and computers/PC will change. Nothing to see here, move along kids. ;)

I think you’ll see change in the corporate world, first in the sales force and field positions. These will become comm devices or “dumb” terminals as you “rubbish” sayers would say. “Pro tools on a tablet?” No. MS Office, Photoshop etc along with corporate applications will run in a cloud not on your device. You ever signed for a UPS package? Ask someone to show you an iPhone, you obviously don’t have one. I’m running navigation s/w, banking, making dinner reservations, reading the newspaper & books, buying movie tickets, using it as a TV remote… even using it as a phone.

What shallow market-based and ill informed rubbish.

As others have said the spec of a good i7 PC with 24G of ram feeding a 50″ plasma screen will always far outperform the flashy junk that kids and semi ignorant execs show off with.

Has anyone checked out Top end Hi-Fi and Music guitar amplification also lately or is the writer ignorant of the fact that vacuum tubes are still very much alive and recognised as the best performing thing for these uses? Just because they’re not in i-pads doesn’t mean they are not still regarded the very best for the job. I’m glad the article has been seen for the apparent marketing sponsored guff that it is. Do some research before gushing such rubbish please

Complete and utter rubbish, the PC will always be around as they can be customised easily and some parts can be fixed by a user with some simple knowledge and google, they also have much more power to handle more operations, this article sounds like it was written by an industry man trying to sell smart phones, tablets and that stupid kindle.

Actually, to all you naysayers out there, Mark is right. He’s just thinking a bit ahead of you guys. The PC, as it has been for the last 30 years, will go the way of the dinosaurs. The future of computing is without a doubt ever more powerful tablets combined with ever faster network/internet access. The processing will take place on back end servers and you will mostly use the tablet as your portable interface device. Most people think we’re 10 years away from this. I think we’ll be there in less than five. Think we’re crazy? Just wait and see.

When you say “my primary computer now is a tablet”, what do you mean?

Are you talking about your primary home computer, or your primary work computer? Or are they one and the same for you?

For most of us, the two cannot be the same due to corporate policy (no personal devices on the corporate LAN including phones), and there’s no way many of us could generate code, create documents, or perform other similar tasks on a tablet PC.

However, watching video doesn’t require much more than a fast enough CPU and a screen. Easy peasy, relatively.

That seems to suggest that your prediction might be a bit premature. If a table can’t perform the tasks required of it, it won’t be much of a replacement…

The Personal Computer has been replaced by the Personal Network, the place where computing, personal connections and personal content converge in a seamless world of communications.

With the many ways to abstract the concept of a software program running on a device (Google Apps, FB, other network-based applications), people are becoming aware of a new capability… their stuff anywhere, and are enjoying use experiences that are less restricted by a device.

Further, as networks add new knowledge to applications (through presence, location, current device and connection, relationship status and more) people have a greater sense of satisfaction and control in their lives.

The opportunities for companies like IBM in this world are huge, as well as they are for smaller application innovators and network service providers.

It all depends on how you define “PC”. If you take the term literally, it simply means a “personal” computer and that’s exactly what laptops, notebooks, netbooks, smartphones, and tablets are able to do — provide the ability to engage in personal computing from the tips of your fingers. Really it’s that simple. To make all of these distinctions about computer form factors is mere semantics. IBM and Apple successfully made the computer a personal tool. Yes, we’ve added many “bells and whistles” to the computer since its infancy, but that doesn’t change the fundamental character of the device. Just look around and you’ll see people all over tapping and typing on their PERSONAL computer.

IBM created a PC to personal computer markets (then called as home computers or microcomputers) and developed a outstanding hardware compability with a PC what no other personal computer had.

Then it made a stupid small mistake, it did not develope the PC-DOS but bought it from Microsoft and even allowed to sold it to others by MS-DOS name.

The rest is the history. IBM lost control of the PC, because Compaq and Microsoft. It tried to get back by creating a next generation of PC, the XT. XT would have been better than PC but game was already lost.

Now my opinion is that IBM should come back to tablet markets. Take a android (as IBM has lots of knowledge of the Linux OS and open source software what Android use as well) and make a own GUI for it and own great business applications.

Too sad that IBM sold the Thinkpad system to Lenovo. I would like to see a black carbonfiber casing 12″ tablet with a great battery life (can be thik from middle part) but more likely, a giant blue “IBM” logo with old fashion back of the tablet. Glowing the dark blue light and when turned sleep the tablet it would be dark IBM logo.
And if tablet would recognize touch but more importantly, recognize the special pen (and then does not react to pen hand what is used to hold pen) it would sell.

I have even a mockups and GUI designs for such device, I just like to dream big IBM coming back to the field to show how the game was use to play…

To some extent this is splitting hairs – a tablet is just a PC; a smartphone is an integrated telephone and PC. What we are seeing just evolution building, to room, to desktop, to laptop to pocket. Evolution yes, extinction – no. Even though we have pocket computers – you will still find building-sized and room sized computers in the met office, in universities, etc.

I think you have fallen into the trap of thinking ‘it works better for me therefore this is the future’

Personally I do not think we will lose the laptop / desktop because there will always be demand. As an amateur astronomer my laptop connects to my telescope mount and two CCD cameras; I need lots of computer power to post process images. I also need good document production capability. I can do all this on one device. No one tablet can do this yet and if it could I would not be inclined to spend a lot of money upgrading my cameras etc. to use wireless or whatever.

I have a different view of why PCs are passé and the real driving force behind advances in computing.

PCs, specially Windows-based machines have always been kludges – carry a lot of baggage because of its horrible system architecture. You can put a new face on it but underneath it all is still band-aids and an antiquated paradigm.

The driving force behind computing advances is how technology empowers the individual. While Dr. Dean’s idea of “the social spaces between them, where people and ideas meet and interact” is relevant, that is not the essential driving force but a distillation (higher level manifestation) of it. The real driving force is how an architecture empowers an individual to create. People on tablets do not have to communicate directly with each other – they only have to access and exchange information. Highly-effective individuals actually spend more time creating and accessing information. There are essentially 2 kinds of humans – those who draw ideas from within and those who draw ideas from others. The first kind is normally associated with inventors, the second, with marketing gurus. Both kinds are empowered by being able to create using their tools and exchange information. If you’ve ever had to wait days or weeks for your MIS guy to fix some ridiculous problem with your PC so you can actually work, you’ll understand why it’s a very good thing that our backward technology people finally admit the PC is (long, long) passé.

Charlie Chaplin would turn in his grave!

The Personal Computer by its name limit’s the scope to “My Computer”

i.e where I work,play and learn.

This tool that aids my “Personal” Journey is no different now that when I first typed 10 Print “hello” 20 Goto 10.

What has changed is me!

How I work, play and learn has become the norm, rather than the pinnacle of the information age. The PC is still here, but how we perceive that tool has changed beyond recognition.

What we should be asking is how the 30 years of the PC has changed us, and where we will be in the 30 years to come.

By leaving the desktop PC behind ensures that, We are all a PC now !

Just picking up on the most irrelevant part of the post….Vinyl records are currently enjoying a huge resurgance among audiophiles. Admittedly they aren’t mainstream any more, you can’t “download” onto vinyl but there’s definitely something very satisfying about playing a record, and, depending on your system, the audio quality you get.
Just thought I’d throw that out there. I enjoyed the rest of your post.

I’ve had every variety of device from the original PC-XT through Macintosh to tens of laptops and built many of my own PCs. I now use multiple devices and multiple ways of communicating including smartphones, e-book readers and (still) laptops but perhaps 40% of my electronic communication doesn’t come from email but social media or messaging, and rising. I sent emails in 1985, and run multiple operating systems and browsers and I agree that the inflection point has already been passed: PCs may still be here in ten years, but they won’t matter.

I also used to tinker with engines, now I just drive the car.

I can see why IBM would want to leave the PC era behind. IBM made an aberration from their strangle hold of IBM proprietary ways, used common parts, made new standards, and eventually lost the whole basket to Compaq and the myriad clones. Where they failed, badly, was when the tried to retrench the market by clinging back to proprietary ‘standards’ like micro-channel and OS/2.

Now that the tablet market is temporarily wide open IBM now sees an opportunity to try and make themselves relevant again. But as HP has been eating their lunch in managed systems, I don’t see what IBM has left to crow about. IBM has a notorious habit of laying off US based folks in droves while setting up foreign based offices at the same time.

It’s really hard to say what value IBM brings to the table apart from some core technologies such as Websphere. Their RAD tool (Eclipse on steroids) is a terrible jump of disparate technologies reflecting the overall lack of coordinated vision that reflects the entire corporate lacklustre.

Taken literally, of course the prediction is bullshit. But I don’t think he meant that our workstations will be replaced any time soon, if ever. What I got from the article, besides a lot of patting one’s self on the back, was that for the average person, who probably does nothing more than check email and surf the web, today’s PC’s are overkill. Does grandma really need a 64 bit system with 4 GB ram and a big monitor to check her email? The answer is no. A simple portable device, that most of us power users consider nothing more than a toy, is more than enough and much more practical and usable. The reason the author ditched his PC for a tablet is because he’s NOT a power user, and admittedly so. He just needs to do basic stuff and maybe write a few blog posts. A tablet is fine for that.

I think you say PC meaning “portable computer”, rather than “personal computer”. If you do, then you should have made this clear, as PC generally doesn’t mean “portable computer”. If you don’t, the following statement applies.

When I view the “specs” of any of the items you say are making the PC obsolete, it seems that they are nothing but Personal Computers (PCs). This isn’t a “post-PC” era; this is a “multiple PC” era or maybe a “Portable Computer” era. The Personal Computer has become so invasive that it’s been merged with telephones, made paperback books irrelevant, and now has a form factor that is handheld. Even gaming systems rival computer specifications, because at a fundamental level they are computers. Sure, systems have merged personal computers with other devices, but that doesn’t make personal computing any less strong or prevalent.

I think you all are reading too much into his statements. He is talking about the “personal” computer, and not the commercial space. It becomes clear what he is waving at when he talks about the social side of the equation.

The PC/workstation in business is not going away, I believe the author is implying that once the schoolwork/email is done for the day then the rest of the personal activities are being done by tablet and smartphone convergence.

To that limited extent I think I agree with him. Remember that the tablet is fairly new and already has a lot of traction for much of the casual activities people do with PCs. PC gaming has been declining for years as gamers trend to specialized consoles.

I personally feel that the main limitation now is that tablets are running lite OSs. Once there are more tablets running a full OS that is truly written for them it will change the market entirely. I expect to see monitor/tablet convergence in 10-15 years or so where the workstation display is detachable and a mobile interface to the PC its attached to. If that happens then the tablets will converge back into the PC.

I love a keyboard. I have one designed in 1995 and it’s built of steel…

Fortunately you can plug in a USB keyboard of any style you like into a smart phone and have the best of both worlds. You can also plug in a huge monitor or television.

People love small cheap computers and the old PC shipped with pounds of steel, packaging and waste is just too expensive and clumsy to do the kinds of things people do today. The new PCs are affordable by more of the world, closing the digital divide, perform just as well and have fewer limitations. They have the advantages of the old PC, thin clients, and pocket calculators all rolled into one.

The notion that the iPad could in any way act as a stand-in for or even replace a full-featured laptop computer is simply prima facie ABSURD. The iPad has, of course, all that sexy touchscreen stuff going for it, but, for us, far from being sexy, touchscreens are a huge turnoff. We hate touchscreens. They seem to us almost PERVERSE.

The last thing one should do with a computer display is touch it with one’s fingertips (or anything else, for that matter). The proper function of a computer display is to do one thing and one thing only: display text and images with the utmost in detail, accuracy, and clarity. Period. Full stop. For us, the thought of touching a computer display with one’s fingertips is as repugnant a thought as, say, the thought of a surgeon operating on a patient without first donning sterile surgical gloves.

So, what’s the point of an iPad? No point at all that we can discern other than to be a slick new toy for those with too much disposable income on hand (the entry price of the bloody thing is on the order of some $500, for which money one could buy a fairly decent, full-function Windows laptop)

This is ridiculous. Personal computers (i.e. laptops) are here to stay.

Lets face it, typing on a screen will NEVER be as comfortable as typing on a keyboard.

And considering tablets will require a stand to be carried around with them (how else are people going to view it…on their laps, holding it in the air, or flat on a table?!), one maybe as well use the inbuilt monitor stand that comes with laptops – it’s called a keyboard.

The reason Tablets will not replace the PC is because of ergonomics!

While a Tablet is good for, say, reading, checking email while on the move, people will always prefer larger screens, comfortable viewing distances, as well as an ACTUAL KEYBOARD when they are working at home or in the office. In fact, flat-screens monitors are becoming larger (20″, 22″), not smaller.

There is only so much you can do with a touch-sensitive Tablet screen, and the keyboard + mouse remains by far the superior and most efficient input compared to every other alternative

I like incandescent lightbulbs. Their light is warmer and more comfortable than phosphorescent, LED’s or low-energy bulbs. I shall be sorry to see them go, and will make sure I have a decent supply before they are banned. I also happen to like vinyl’s. They might not provide better sound than CD’s, but are certainly superior to those crummy mp3′s.

That’s not to say that PC’s are superior to other gadgets, but at least a PC allows for a decent input device (the full-size keyboard), better screen resolution and size, along with numerous other advantages compared to tablets, phones and other hand-held gizmos.

[...] Clearly this has caught the PC industry on the back foot; Intel has watched the rise and fall of its ATOM netbook chip. Microsoft reaped rewards from the 10 years of XP.  Yet, Windows 7’s successor, Windows 8, is already being leaked on the internet. Windows 8 is a major platform change for Microsoft with tablet devices being supported by default rather than by accident. It also breaks the Wintel model where Microsoft and Intel were joined at the hip. Windows 8 runs on ARM processors.  ARM processors are designed for mobile devices, you can see where they are going. Dr Mark Dean, one of the original designers of the PC said in his blog recently “When I helped design the PC, I didn’t think I’d live long enough to witness its decline,” He goes on to say that his primary device is now a tablet. You can read his blog here. [...]
