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.

This topic has already been talked/debated to death. Why is it being resurrected yet again.

I guess it needs to be said, yet again, that laptops and desktops aren't going anywhere. Anyone who thinks a device/platform that consistently sells hundreds of millions units a year, is quite simply a fool.

This thread can be closed now.

Just to throw in some trivia:
More memory chips are now made for tablets and phones than for PCs.

Desktops and laptops aren't going anywhere soon, but people are spending more and more time away from them using other devices.

...and? There are more tires sold for bicycles than for cars, so you also believe we're living in a "post-automobile" world?
