evolution of the personal computer
During the 80s, software was a phenomenon that was relevant to the computer environment only, thanks to the evolution of the personal computer by Steve Jobs and Bill Gates in their areas of expertise.
Today, as with everything else, it has broken free of its confines and has diversified into the consumer electronics line of business. So, essentially, when you buy a mobile phone… you are actually buying a miniature PC.
If you ask me, I’d be happy with two tin cans connected by a string, from the ‘Telephone telephone’ days of my childhood. But since the New Millennium belongs to Gen-Y, where showing ‘skin is in’ as well as the fact that boys like their toys, we have indeed evolved to a tech-junkie post-modernism cultural pot pourri.
The interesting thing about digital electronics today is ‘killer apps’, a term familiarized by Apple Computers during its rise as a ‘complete’ computer company.
For all you gizfreaks, a plethora of free mobile softwares a.k.a ‘killer apps’ are available at mobuniverse.com. Whether it is mobile themes, SMS forwarders, mobile games, ring tones … you name it! And it is free of cost!
Applications available for every conceivable mobile phone on the market, really! So have fun on this techno roller coaster ride, until the next development comes up.
