A week or two back I was going through Ray Ozzie’s “Dawn of a new day”. There is one thing that sounds clear to me after reading the memo is “Google’s Chrome OS + Android and Apple’s iOS” popping into my mind. In general “Chrome OS” kind of philosophy I was able to understand.
Web, now, after seeing IE9’s race, is going to be the platform, it may not have all the bells and whistles of Native Apps but that’s going to be there soon through Html5/CSS3/JS with developer creativity. It is long story and warrant a new post.
There are atleast two companies are affected by this computational and thought shift are Microsoft and Intel. The shift started almost decade back but when these people realized it might be almost impossible to turn around. But I am sure Intel, couple of years back, realized this and is started fighting marathon race.
Personal devices, which is what Intel fighting to enter, needs to be connected. In fact, even iPod is going to pull songs from Cloud. So these devices are confluence of personal + cloud based services which is source of information/data repositories.
