I foresaw a similar trend before journalists dared to talk about it.
Microsoft dominate the desktop, but computing is drifting towards the
Internet, which is presently dominated by Google.
I am not saying that others failed to make similar speculations, but notable
writers were reluctant to make statements which are overly bold.
My latest guess was this:
You will have void machines and carry your favourite O/S, applications and
entire data in your pocket, only using computational servers. There is a
lot of secrecy behind the ambition, which is why Apple, Palm and Microsoft
all push hard towards a good hard-drive-based portable device.
