Consumer electronics gumbo Economist article

Consumer electronics gumbo
Economist article arguing the subtle convergence based around protocols and people’s lives that has spawned divergence in the consumer electronics industry.

Reminded me of a conversation last year with Phil Oye
on a New York subway about whether our gadgets would converge to a
digital penknife or diverge to single-use devices… The protocols and
purpose arguement was something I wish we’d discussed then…!
