The proliferation of innovative information and communication tools is entering a new phase in the evolution of computing, which we call “Post-PC Computing” (PPC) . PPC is characterized by cross-device interoperability, Internet access to data and applications and reduced vendor lock-in. Before any the benefits of any technological change can be realized, individuals and organizations must evaluate and make a decision to adopt or reject the new technologies.
