Even though mobile is trending, most of us still opt for bathrooms over diapers.

It's too soon to say that anything is inevitable as far as virtual reality is concerned.

Carl Metropolitan

So how did reorientation towards mobile work out for Blue Mars?

I'd compare content to cooking. Just because more people prepare their stuff in microwave ovens, it doesn't necessarily mean that we should stop writing recepies for classic cooking. There are a lot of things that do not turn out well (enough) in a microwave oven to be enjoyed. It's the same with the mobile phone.

If VR will really be the next big thing, then people will buy good computers to enjoy it. Or streaming services will improve so much that they can offer an acceptable performance and price to consumers...

Game changers are impossible to predict by trends that show you the situation, before the game changes...

Triangle Monarchy

A mobile phone is a computer, a tablet is a computer. Technology always gets smaller.


"Technology always gets smaller"

Like TV's and Flat screen monitors?

Like flip phones to touch screens?

Like PDA's to tablets?


ask any 13yo creative who makes stuff on Minecraft, What do you prefer to use: tablet or PC?

then ask the same question of a 9yo

one will say PC. The other will say tablet

and both will know (and can tell you) why they gave dif answers. and why the other young person is not wrong, even tho they give dif answers

Ice Petal

Can't we have both?

VR demands to much focus and calm to be used Outdoors - VR is desktop or laptop - I wont be going to virtual worlds while Im on Starbucks or waiting on a traffic jam - This trends are about Facebook and Messengers that had a Boom and still will boom more - VR is at home, at least for the next 1 or 2 decades
