Desktop Computer - Google says it is at the end of its life

Google Europe sales chief John Herlihy says that the Desktop computer will reach its end of life in 3 years. Herlihy was speaking at the Digital Landscapes conference at UCD. “In three years time, desktops will be irrelevant. In Japan, most research is done today on smart phones, not PCs.” The view reflects Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s view at the recent GSM Association Mobile World Congress 2010.  Schmidt told that Google is looking everything through mobile lens, centering on the cloud, computing and connectivity. The fear is the next Sergey and Larry will come up with a disruptive technology or service that will eliminate the need for Google… … The digital world is fundamentally different to the traditional business world. Things happen much faster, websites spring up from nowhere, a video could be a YouTube hit in hours. When big names like Google say that some version of computer is going to be extinct in near future one can take it for granted. Even if it does not become obsolete by itself, they have the might and resources to kill it. With rapid development of smart phones, iPads, Microsoft Courier and similar device and operating system like iPhone OS, Crome OS, the future seems to be going mobile for sure. But, will the desktop become extinct in 3 years? We would certainly see signs in near future. sources- 1 | 2 |
