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.

Good article

It ends with this msessage

The tablet tsunami isn’t coming, it’s here. We can ride the wave…or we can wave goodbye any chance of understanding the future of computing.

Good catch, I didn't know that website and it is really fun.
However, I'm not sure that these "experts" realize how silly they are.

Pretending that tablets are replacing PC and saying that it is "the future" is incredibly stupid. Nothing never replaces anything.

Apple success is not about giving better tools, it is to make people buy things they didn't know they needed.

For example, if Mr Jobs was still alive, He would setup a secret lab developping "Home Robots" or "3D printers", things insanely cool, already invented, but just lacking polish and applications for everyone.

Sounds to me like you may have your own reality distortion field ;)

This is worth a look, by Jean-Louis Gassée no less, the guy who had the other OS when Apple chose Next.
