Microsoft catching up but can they leap ahead? I have been thinking recently about what the next wave of technology will be all about. Of course it’ll be web-based but I think it will be the players that change this next wave not the software or hardware. Back in December 2004, Carly Fiorina, now ex-head of HP, talked about the world being more digital, virtual, mobile and personal (I’d also add ubiquitous and usable). If she was right, and it looks like she is, then the creative, right-brainers out there will surely acquire more dominance than they had before. The future though may be much more of a “whole-brained” affair – and quite fun apparently.
