The engineer who was on the team who built the first PC, 30 years ago, has said that its time has been and gone.
IBM engineer Mark Dean said that he was proud when IBM decided to leave the personal computer business in 2005, selling its PC division to Lenovo.
He said that he has switched to a tablet and that the PC is going the way of “vacuum tubes, typewriters, vinyl records, CRT and incandescent light bulbs.”
If he is using a tablet we can’t think that he is getting much work done. The clock speed of a tablet is slow and there is no keyboard.
