アップルタブレットはコンピュータの未来を救う投稿日: 2009年 8月 11日
〈How the Apple Tablet Could Save Computing〉
The iPhone as a technology is ground breaking. The App Store as a business model represents (and I usually hate this phrase) a paradigm shift in software business models. To date, we’ve sold software like expensive books in a bookstore. We’ve sold programs like they were physical items, but software is ethereal and it has to be sold in different way with different tradeoffs. The App store does this. It sells software with boundaries of software, not software with boundaries of paper.
The modern computer industry started in garages. The future of computing could be born there as well if PopSci and others of like mind weren’t so damn nearsighted. I’m heading out there now.
