While conducting some market research for a client I ran across some (not new but) interesting data about how the need for efficiency drives leaps in technology. Here is a thumbnail of the blurb that caught my interest:
1970-80 Everyone wanted a mainframe
1980-90 Everyone wanted a desktop
1990-00 Everyone wanted a laptop/portable
2000-10 Everyone wanted a cell phone
I used to work on a mainframe that filled a 40x40 foot room and cost millions of dollars. Now, my laptop can do more and is faster.
What will be the "Everyone wanted a...." tag for the decade between 2010-20?
