Será o fim da computação pessoal de propósito geral?

Será o fim da computação pessoal de propósito geral? Artigos Quando os computadores, que são máquinas que evoluem e podem ser reprogramadas, se tornaram amplamente disponíveis, o burburinho gerado foi merecido. Cientistas, bancos e companhias de seguros, acharam que estavam sonhando; outros, como os escritores de ficção científica, acharam que aquilo era um pesadelo. Hoje em dia, gostando ou não, eles estão em toda parte. Só que parte desses computadores voltados para o uso individual está se distanciando bastante do conceito original de máquina programável. Eles mais parecem ferramentas comuns, com uma utilidade fixa. Seus mecanismos internos personalizáveis só estão acessíveis às pessoas que os desenvolveram. Será que não existe mais mercado para máquinas programáveis pessoais de propósito geral, capazes de fazer de tudo? Vou tentar responder a essa pergunta, levando em conta duas fortes tendências no mercado da computação pessoal: os dispositivos sensíveis ao toque e a computação em nuvem.
