MEDIA POST -- Feb 22 -- Intel's New Super Chip promises to be a performance breakthrough of breathtaking proportions and while it's destined for supercomputers, the trickle-down effect to our everyday computing requirements is inevitable...mobile computing. If you can pack enough horsepower into your average mobile device to facilitate things like speech recognition and more robust support for virtual displays, the mobile computing experience becomes much less frustrating. And when that happens, our entire interaction with the Web changes with it.
Mark Brooks: Just think 'Star Trek.' Remember the little mobile pads that listen and talk. The future has already been laid out for us by Star Trek. Now technology has to catch up. Speech recognition and Location Based Services and GPS and iPod'esque personal entertainment will all unify within the next ten years. Apple and Nokia will be at the forefront.
