Another factor also came into play last week. While attending the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco I got to hear famed venture capitalist John Doerr talk about his passion for the iPhone. At one point, he held his iPhone up and said he believes this platform will ultimately become more important and influential than the PC platform.
Read that last sentence again and let it sink in. Doerr wasn’t saying the PC platform is dying out and the iPhone will one day be more important than it. He’s saying that as revolutionary as the original PC marketplace was (and has been), the iPhone platform is poised to have even more of an impact.
Emphasis added by me.
Well, duh, yeah! Some of us have been saying that since we first fondled the frikkin thing.
[...] I can honestly say I would have been less inclined to buy a Kindle if I already had an iPhone. (Sorry Amazon.)
Yeah, well, beginning in January, those Kindle sales will tank:
