End of the PC era

The latest Microsoft admission that the future lies in internet-based services comes from new Microsoft boss Ray Ozzie. The Financial Times says the "top technology visionary" has declared an end to the PC era, laying out a vision for the company in which internet-based services, rather than PCs, lie at the centre of its worldview. Ozzie told the company’s annual analyst and investor meeting:

“In a previous era – in the PC era – Microsoft would naturally begin with a PC mindset. We’re in a new era – an era in which the internet is at the centre. … [This] “fundamental and transformational shift to services [will] turn the technology industry on its head.”
