Forget Computers, Buy Consumer Electronics

from the shifting-down-market dept

While the PC industry struggles along, it seems that consumer electronics products continue to sell well, and some technology companies are beginning to take notice. While consumers and companies may be putting off expensive PC purchases, they are willing to pick up the latest (cheap) DVD player or other consumer electronics, and so tech companies are inching their way in to get a piece of that business. What this could lead to is a real push towards the “convergence” that people always like to talk about. Already, companies like Sony and Microsoft are looking to make their game consoles more central to a household’s computing and entertainment needs – and as people are more and more interested in consumer electronics over computers, this trend should continue.
