"cloud

There’s no doubting the cloud invasion. But the research firm Gartner believes the personal cloud will replace the PC as the center of our digital lives sooner than you might think: 2014.
“In this new world, the specifics of devices will become less important for the organization to worry about. Users will use a collection of devices, with the PC remaining one of many options, but no one device will be the primary hub. Rather, the personal cloud will take on that role. Access to the cloud and the content stored or shared in the cloud will be managed and secured, rather than solely focusing on the device itself.”

But it’s not about the oft-referenced post-PC era, “but rather about a new style of personal computing that frees individuals to use computing in fundamentally new ways to improve multiple aspects of their work and personal lives.”
“People argue about, ‘Are we in a post-PC world?’. Why are we arguing? Of course we are in a post-PC world. That doesn’t mean the PC dies; that just means that the scenarios that we use them in, we stop referring to them as PCs, we refer to them as other things.”

‘Personal Cloud’ to Replace PC by 2014, Says Gartner | Cloudline | Wired.com (via myserendipities)

Clouds allow the content to free itself from the hardware, not altogether, but from at least from a dedicated device. It’s coming sooner than you think, and it opens so many possibilities.
