For nearly two decades, industry sages have heralded the coming age of converging digital technology. But it remained an empty slogan. Now, thanks to faster chips, broader bandwidth, and a common Internet standard, technologies are quickly merging.
"Digitalization is creating products that can't be categorized as tech or consumer electronics. The walls are coming down."
That sets up a collision of three massive industries: computers and software; consumer electronics; and communications. They all need help.
The result is a Big Bang of convergence, and it's likely to produce the biggest explosion of innovation since the dawn of the Internet.
