Steve Jobs' vision and creation of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) line of products, has helped create a paradigm shift moving from desktop computing into cloud computing using Mobile platform. With an enriched iApps ecosystem and sophisticated Mobile Operating Systems (iOS) which are beginning to replace software and operating environments such as windows respectively, we are beginning to see new waves of change in various aspects of our lives and the business community.
In addition, with advent of cloud environment and mobile communication, personal computers are becoming more and more obsolete as we enter this novel ecosystem.
Bottom line is that iApps, iCloud and mobile operating systems (iOS) are replacing traditional softwares, hard-drives and "old-world" operating systems. With continued growth in emerging markets and further penetration into business market, we are seeing signs and features of "new-world" order. Apple (AAPL) is the front-runner in this revolution.
The question remains if companies such as Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) and HP (NYSE:HPQ) will change their business strategy to keep up with this, or will they suffer the same fate as Eastman Kodak which failed to keep up with demands of advancing technology. Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows 8 (which is due to come out later this year) is an example of this change in paradigm in order to meet consumer demands. Will other companies follow suit?
