Dave Pollard's list is a little idealistic and a little irreverent (just like all his stuff, which is why I enjoy hos blog so much). "Cell Phones: Now let me get this straight: On my increasingly-compact, full-screen, full-keyboard laptop I can get wireless anywhere for a small flat monthly rate, and then make unlimited phone calls, download files and communicate in a dozen different ways for free. But now on this tiny awkward cell phone, you're going to charge me for every message, and severely restrict what I can send and receive. And I'm going to put up with this why?" Um... yeah. there's going to have to be some convergence there. But guess which direction the service providers are betting on (hint: they are predicting the end of the desktop and the laptop).
