The “Post-PC” Era: It’s Real, But It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does | Forrester Blogs
May 17, 2011 | Forrester Blogs | by Sarah Rotman Epps who
explains that computing is shifting from: Stationary to ubiquitous.
Contrast the experience of computing on a desktop PC, in one place with a
clear start and finish time, to that of the anytime/anywhere computing
done on a smartphone or tablet. Ubiquitous computing = context-aware
computing, aided by sensors like accelerometers, gyroscopes, and
geolocators in smartphones & tablets.
Formal to casual. Instant-on/always-on computing on smartphones and
tablets fills in-between moments like standing in line or watching TV.

Abstracted to physical. Touchscreens on smartphones and tablets
enable direct physical manipulation of content in two-dimensional space.
Cameras with facial recognition, voice sensors, and motion sensors
(e.g. Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360) permit a wider range of physical
interaction with devices, where a user’s body and voice become the

IPads Are Latest Weapon in Medical Sales -
Medical-sector companies are passing out thousands of iPad tablet
computers to salespeople to spruce up their pitch to doctors, and at the
same time giving Apple Inc. a crucial foot in the door to business
customers. Abbott Laboratories, Medtronic Inc. and Boston Scientific
Corp. are among the drug and medical-device firms making the move, while
others say they are testing out the devices.

The tablet computers offer new ways to display product information or
surgical-implant techniques, and help eliminate time wasted on issues
that don't drive sales, according to companies. Their quick start-up
times mean the salesmen can jump into their presentations before doctors
lose interest.
