Given the last post I have to add Nokia to the new order mix. They prove yet again, with their latest butt smackin´ results, that mobile is the future and tethered the past!
So Google, Apple, Yahoo, Nokia and Motorola may be the new tech world order, with the Internet, mobile and computer/sumer electronics the engines of future tech growth.
Microsoft will try and fight back by taking all of them on (what's new) but will ultimately accept that their future lies in corporate computing (as IBM learnt) and will re-org around it!! No guesses what'll happen to them thereafter!
