According to a recent report, the PC is headed for a swift death by 2015. Ok, ok that statement is exaggerated a little. But within the next four years, more people will be accessing the Internet from smartphones and tablets than from personal computers.
It’s true that while people use mobile devices more and more to check email, read books, get directions, and socialize, their PCs are getting a little dusty at home. But does that mean we should throw our laptops out the window? Hell no! Even Digital Gentleman is on the fence on this debate.
Similarly to email, PCs will die a long and slow death and it all has to do with business. Corporations and organizations rely on email and personal computers on a daily basis. Not to mention the millions of creative professionals who would much rather edit a film, design a graphic, or write a story with a real keyboard and a large screen as opposed to spending ten-times as long doing the same thing on a headache-inducing handheld device.
What do you use your personal computer for? Could you do the same on a mobile device? Let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter @WIREDInsider.blog comments powered by Disqus
