Changing times ...

The pace at which technology is progressing every day is really scary, there was a time when Hardware used to sell like hot cakes and there was no real value for software... IBM did this historical blunder of concentrating too much on Hardware and leaving scope for likes of Microsoft to develop a operating system , they realized there mistakes when they started incurring huge losses .. finally after many years they sold there hardware PC/Laptop division to Lenovo and now focusing on software developement...

Time has taken one more turn after few years, software programs became so important and vital that new range of hardware are designed just to accommodate certain software features... new handset with no appreciable change in designs but featuring advanced software applications like blackberries of the world took over the market by storm .. the change was so fast , within no time every one was checking there mails on Blackberry .

Now this was not enough for us , another big change , entrepreneurs are developing specialized hardware to accommodate just a few dominant websites , this is micro specialty feature and people are buying it without second thought. ,For example new mobiles which are face-book enabled are spending millions just in advertising their products , face-book might not be making any money but these new generation of Entrepreneur bring new innovation and changes in market are reaping the benefits ..

The change might be a bit easy for non paying users but is very tough for entrepreneurs and licensed users who spend lot of money in developing and marketing a application which goes off line in a flash .
