May 28 2013, 11:10am CDT | by , in News | Technology News

The International Data Corporation has reported on the shipping trends of tablets on a worldwide basis. And the shipments will exceed both portable PCs exported in the present year as well as total number of PCs to be sent overseas two years from now. Now that says something loud and clear to the technology crowd out there.

IDC Predicts Global Tablet Shipments to Exceed PC Shipments by 2015

The world is moving on to try new things that were unknown a few years ago. Take the example of tablets with touch screen features. They are a phenomenon that is picking up speed as sales go sky high with each passing minute. The International Date Corporation (IDC) has formed a report regarding this latest trend and officially released this report today.

The news is not good for personal computers (portable or otherwise). With a more than 50% increase in sales during the span of the previous and current year, tablets are definitely the hottest item on the global menu of technological goods. The PC market is in recession as tablets become the order of the day. For now portable PCs are going down. In the future all PCs will face a downward trend in their destiny. The model of excellence for the world has undergone a power shift of sorts. Things are looking smarter and handy as the old gives way to the new. While this does not entirely spell doom and gloom for PCs, for now the forecast is of a bright and shiny future for the elegantly stylish tablet. The unwieldy PC is a dinosaur in the age of mammals.

This fashionable move contains a sub-trend of the search engine giant Google being more highly favored than Apple Incorporated. The decline of the PC world was only to be expected since in case of the rapid technological change you find so rabid today, today’s goods become obsolete before the event horizon of tomorrow has encroached upon the earth’s zenith. The goal is towards minimalism where less is more.

With more style in design and substance packed into a compact space you have some very slim and trim tablets which are hitting the market in succession. It is indeed a wonder of engineering and computer science. Change is the law of life and where there are winners there will obviously be losers. It is a simple example of evolution weeding out the unfit and making room for the fittest. And of course those technologies which happen to be among the fittest today will become unfit tomorrow. The laws of the technological jungle we find ourselves in today dictate that much for sure!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
