Submission + - Computerworld Predicts PC's Demise ( 1

ipoverscsi writes: Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols of sometime-relevant ComputerWorld Magazine has predicted the demise of the PC at the hands of Apple, Inc.. From the article: "What has happened, though, is that Apple has earned its billions and the respect of stock-buyers by switching its focus from desktop and laptops to tablets and mobile devices. Just as the rise of the PC spelled the eventual decline, and sometimes demise, of such mainframe and midrange computer companies as DEC, Honeywell and Unisys, the rise of devices with built-in computing power and high-speed networking points the way to the fall of the PC-centric companies." I hope Michael Dell is paying attention!
