Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

I have to make a big snip here, as this thread is already too big for me to manage. Thank you for keeping it civil though.

8/ The ability to administer, deploy and manage these applications on a network (in an office or at home)

Here I think the collapse of the pc paradigm my be surprisingly rapid. In the home come iOS5 for example a pc will no longer be required to administer anything, the same will go for many small and medium sized firms I think.

I think you may be surprised at how rapid the non-pc device revolution is going to be


In my work place, where we design, build and manufacturer Medical Instruments, iOS has made exactly zero impact. We are around 400 people strong.

People do use their own iPads to browse the web at lunch time, but it's going to take a lot more than that to convince me that this is a new paradigm. Maybe I just lack the vision :-)

We'll see I guess!
