PC processor shipments are up worldwide. This in itself is a good sign of economic recovery, since these chips go into a lot of devices – and perhaps most interestingly, they go into mobile devices.

Yet another indicator of our growing hunger to be connected yet mobile at the same time. Are we developing nomadic tendencies? Digital nomads? Certainly with the growing power of the iPhone, Palm Pre and Blackberry on top of Netbooks and increasing availability of wireless Internet access it must be so.
How do you think such mobility might shape our business world in the future?
