My iMac was broken a month ago. I didn’t send it to the repair center, because I’ve been busy these days. It’s hard days that I can’t write code in home, but I don’t have enough free time to do it even if my PC is home.
In the fact, without PC (including Mac), I have nice days, use net, write mail and post blog. iPhone provides those features. When my project in my company is released, I perhaps want PC to use it in home. But, now, PC is not must.
In Japan, young people don’t want PC. Old time, young people ask their parents to buy PC. But, these days, they want mobile phone. They enjoy games with mobile. Oh my god.
Since my PC is not available, I understood this phenomenon. PC is must to create something, but PC is not must to use something. We, I and you should think about these changes. This is not only Japanese culture.
Chrome OS will change NetBook, but, I think that consumers will not need NetBook for their life.
