$32 million vs. $400 -- price of the fastest super-computer in 1975, and a modern smartphone with equal computing power.
The mobile computing revolution - the explosion in relatively cheap mobile computing power and connectivity - has the power to significantly change the way many industries do business.
We've already seen examples of this -- the manager who submits an expense claim with the snap of her smartphone camera, the engineer who marks up construction defects on an iPad, the sales professional who catches up on the account history on the way to the client meeting.
But all of this is just the low-hanging fruit. Connected mobile computing is in its infancy, and a great deal of value is yet to be unlocked. Advances will come not just from improved user experience, greater availability of computing power and connectivity, but also from the automation of knowledge work through improved information coherence allowing apps to make subtle judgments.
