NO RATINGS

I think technology has become cheap and mature enough to give more options to users. Yesterday users were bound to a laptop for all their computing needs whereas today a user can have a tablet to carry around for web browsing, emailing and messaging on the go while keeping a high power and bulky laptop for work. In addition, a smart phone will do more than just keeping you talking these days and can easily take over most of the tasks of the tablet when its battery is about to go flat when you are out and about. The trend I see in the computing world is more and more affordable platforms are becoming available to allow users to dedicate almost one device per task. In other words, the users are starting to keep a separate horse depending on the race track of their interest.
