It's a big fat cliche to mention how fast the web and computers are changing. The changes happen so fast that it's easy to miss them. It's that or you get lost with the next transition.
What's next? What's in the future? Well, it's happening right now with your smartphones and tablets. It's commonly referred to as the mobile web.
Check what Eric Schmidt, one of the big guns at Google, has to say about this change:
"The trend has been that mobile was winning. It's now won," he said in the interview. "There are more tablets and phones being sold than personal computers. People are moving to this new architecture very fast." For that reason, he believes we will see a "new generation of applications" emerge to fill changing needs for entertainment, social networking and more.
This affects everybody. It's a change in what tools are used to consume information and it is changing communications habits. It's here and it won't go away.
