Dumbing Down Smart Objects
Bruce Sterling at Wired has studied his crystal ball again and prodicts that "Forget about cumbersome, multifunctional PDAs. The future is an open book."
The future product that embodies these developments will be so radically different from today's that it will need an entirely new name. So let's give it one. Because it's tracked precisely in space and time, let's call it a spime.
He continues to show that books are close to become spimes due to Amazon. Very interesting article as one would expect from Sterling.
A spime isn't a superfangled, function-heavy gizmo like a Treo 600. A Treo heroically serves as cell phone, camera, calendar, browser, emailer, music player, and word processor. A spime doesn't have to be that complicated. It could be a book.
