I guess the PC just isn't cool any more


I've recently read a very persuasive argument that the PC isn't much fun any more and that the coolest stuff in tech is now centered around all these small gadgets like iPods (of course), PDAs, phones, Tablet PCs, laptops, and other stuff. I'm not sure I'd put PDAs in the same category as iPods in terms of cool factor, but there's some truth to this argument. It's source is Benefactor/Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (hey, the guy can't be all that bad, he's an Indiana University grad). Check out his blog post, "The end of an era - The Desktop PC."
