PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over at Daringfireball this past weekend, John Gruber put words to what many people are thinking about after Google's rush of Android announcements and not-subtle Apple-bashing at this week's I/O conference: "all-out war." I agree with Gruber that a good old-fashioned bitter rivalry could be a great thing for the computing world, and for smartphone/handheld fans in particular.

My point was that all the interest, all the development and all the growth is heading to mobiles. It's a hype bandwagon. Desktops will still be around and will still be getting the actual work done whilst people Facebook their tweets.

Apple seem already to have forgotten about the desktop.

Windows is already obsolete to me because I can use any OS and run the web pages I want to. This trend is only going to increase unless Microsoft can rejuvenate the platform.

Meaning, the trend for techie geeks. Not for business. Not for those that matter.

Microsoft will be around a LONG time, regardless of whether they "rejuvenate the platform."
