Comdex Is Boring

from the the-death-of-the-post-pc-era dept

The John C. Dvorak roundup of Comdex points out that Comdex was fairly boring this year. He also points out that the “post-PC era” that everyone seems to be talking about was certainly not obvious at Comdex. So, don’t expect any more flashy products. Technology is boring again.

now what are we going to do?

With such a balanced, critical assessment of the current state of tech, will there ever be a “next big thing”? Now that ‘the internet’ has cried wolf about 100 times, what will we believe? Will we finally start actually *trying* to make people’s lives better, easier, etc. — instead of promising to do so, and really intending to just make as much profit as possible?
