IBM: At 30 Years, The PC Is Dying
The IBM PC will turn 30 tomorrow and can be looked back as an astonishing accomplishment that has changed billions of lives. Yet IBM believes that the PC is already dying and will soon share its fate with the typewriter.
That statement doesn’t come from just a random company. It comes from a company that pioneered the PC and has often led new ideas and has been copied frequently by rivals such as HP. If IBM says that the time for its brain child, the PC, is over, we are listening.
Happy Birthday. Now drop dead.
