PC Industry Over?

from the move-on,-nothing-to-see-here dept

Is the PC industry dead? That’s what this article is suggesting is true following the struggles HP is having trying to merge with Compaq. They give the example of Intel jettisoning its memory business and focusing on the microprocessor and say HP should ditch the PC business and focus on services while looking for the “next device”. Of course, that’s what Carly Fiorina has been saying the Compaq deal is all about in reality – but no one seems to believe her. As for what that “next device” is… no one seems to know. I’m writing this from a wireless conference (more on that later this week), where everyone wants to believe that some sort of wireless portable device is the next big thing, but no one seems to really believe it.
