Another way to see the future
For a long time I’ve been talking about the idea that the computer (desktop or laptop) will become less and less important as a way to access the Internet, and the cell phone will evolve into an all-in-one unit.
When that happens, the Web will morph into a much more powerful tool for everyday living than it even is now. The various versions and competitors of the Blackberry that have been on the market for the last few years have been validating this concept.
But if you want to really see the future as I have been imagining it, catch one of the the new Apple i-phone commercials. From the looks of it Apple is going again move us a generation ahead. Watch the i-phone commercials here and see for yourself.
And, when you watch, you’ll also see why I think text messaging will be a transitional technology.
