The era of the PC is over …

Daddy, Where’s Your Phone? – O’Reilly Radar

The story goes something like this: Vic was out for dinner with family
and friends. The adults were on one side of the table, the kids on the
other. The adults were debating some issue, and Vic said, in response
to a question from one of his friends, “I don’t know.”

His four-year old daughter Samantha, whom everyone knows as
“Tiger,” piped up from the other side of the table: “Daddy, where’s
your phone?”

“What do you mean, where’s my phone?” She explained that she’d
overheard the question. Why wasn’t he just looking up the answer on his
phone?

Out of the mouths of babes. Vic said that he realized in that
moment that the era of the PC was over, and that the future belonged to
cloud applications accessed via phones.
