What does the post-PC era mean? (video)


People have been talking about us entering a post-PC era for a while. With the rise of the smartphone and the iPad, it’s finally happening but it and it doesn’t mean that the PC is dead. It simply means that the PC will be the primary device for work while the smartphone will be for computing “in the wild”. The iPad will be the true personal computing device – on your lap while your on the couch – shopping, watching videos, Skype-ing with friends, etc. Don’t believe me? Maybe you’ll believe Foresters, Sarah Rotman Epps!
