The word 'death' in this post is about as exaggerated as you can get. After all, many people still own and use traditional hand-set phones that are now several generations obsolete. Not everything that rises must fall; we still use the wheel, fire and shoes. But sure, Silicon Valley must invent something new in order to survive. Is it, as the author suggests, virtual and augmented reality glasses? "Smartglasses will in turn be a stepping stone to smart contact lenses or even the mind-reading tech that Facebook announced last week" Sure. But these are a decade away.
