Electronic Device Evolution – What’s Next

The question of ubiquity around consumer electronics is an interesting one.  Will the Kindle replace the laptop?  Will home computers and TVs combine with gaming systems?

While you’re thinking about that, you might enjoy this evolutionary chart which was in the latest Fast Company (July/Aug 2009).  It’s a nice history reminder although you could add a lot more on any path and really have a very interesting discussion.  The funny thing is that I can remember most of these things, but I bet there are kids today that have no idea of a 8-track tape, a walkman, the Commodore 64 (or PC Jr), or the big mobile phone bags.
