"Forget the debate over whether employees should use tablets and smartphones for work. A large swatch of information workers are already putting it in practice. They've decided that using computers, tablets, and smartphones -- often all three -- suits the "work anywhere, work everywhere" environment we now know so well. A global study of nearly 10,000 information workers by Forrester Research shows this post-PC reality is the new reality.
"If you're still arguing that iPads, Macs, iPhones, and Android devices are toys that faddist employees will soon get over, stop wasting your breath. If you believe a strict separation of work and personal information and activities can be imposed on information workers, stop wasting your time and money. If you're not reworking your applications and Web services to be adaptive -- that is, to work across multiple operating systems, browsers, screen sizes, and user interfaces -- you'd better start now. Likewise, if you're not reworking your apps and services to assume that information flows easily and capabilities are delivered as services, you'd better start now."
The death of the PC and the death of WinTel. I love it! Time for Microsoft to bite the big green one. I can't wait to see what happens next year when Microsoft ends XP support. Microsoft is doomed unless Windows 9 brings back the Start Menu. Here's what could save Microsoft. How about Windows 9 XP Pro, a Windows XP clone? Make it 100% compatible with all XP hardware and software. I think it would sell much better than the Windows 8 'Metro' fiasco.
