Decline of the personal PC

November 6, 2007 at 10:47 pm 1 comment

Interesting post from Paul Madsen pointing to an article in the Globe and Mail about the diminishing role of PCs in Japanese homes. Put it down to the rise of powerful gadgets like mobiles, gaming consoles, etc.

The article says, “Japan’s PC market is already shrinking, leading analysts to wonder whether Japan will become the first major market to see a decline in personal computer use some 25 years after it revolutionized household electronics – and whether this could be the picture of things to come in other countries.”

This is bad news for German law enforcement authorities. Their Stasi 2.0 plans of using Trojans to conduct covert surveillance will now need to increase scope and budget.
