Computing has always been done at desks.But baristas don’t have desks.Nor do teens.And no one takes a desktop computer shopping.
And when you delete a le, you move it rom a‘desktop’ to a ‘trashcan’.
This is a problem
The deskiness o computers has stopped them gettinginto every corner o our lives.They aren’t there when we socialize.They aren’t there when we shop.Or travel.Or go to bed.And they are just not designed or the 80% o humanswho don’t sit at a desk all day.
Not so with the phone
A cellphone is a very dierent device.It’s always on.It’s always connected.And it’s always with you.
It’s a paradigm shit
Putting computing power into such a small device islikely to change computing out o all recognition.And our lives with it.Thirty years ater the invention o the personalcomputer, computing is about to get intimate.
