Convergence.


        The telephone has become mobile and turned into a games machine - that also receives emails and has a camera inside to videos your friends.  

The PC has become portable and turned into a tablet that you can use to listen to the radio and watch television on.  At home the television set is a satellite receiver, that connects to the Internet,   records DVDs and becomes a wide-screen media centre.

Its called "technology convergence".

Capability expands, performance increases whilst prices plummet.
