Hardware, Embedded Systems If there's one over-used buzzword currently making the rounds in the technology industry, it's 'post-PC world' - or the notion that desktops and laptops are a dying breed. Todd Bradley, executive vice president of HP's printing and personal systems group, thinks this is a nonsensical notion - and he's right.

the problem is the definition of "PC" varies and is unclear.

when Great Apple said "post-PC", that meant "post-microsoft" because microsoft had used "PC" to describe a computer with microsoft windows on it.

and since microsoft is getting toasted, that post-microsoft idea was correct.

but things start to get strange when you use "post-PC" with other meanings of "PC"
