Orphaned references in Post-PC era
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Post-PC era's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.
Reference named "ReferenceA":
- From Intel: "Bill Gates Speaks", page 29. ISBN 978-0-471-40169-8
- From Compaq: Zuckerman, Laurence (June 16, 1997). "Compaq Computer Looks Back and Sees the Competition Gaining". The New York Times.
I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 23:34, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
I believe the term was coined by David Clark from MIT. This page suggests the term was invented by the Apple marketing department, but really they were just picking up on this concept that David Clark had been talking about for many years before. The term is not simply about devices shrinking from desktop to mobile, but a shift from interacting with a single device, to interacting with a ubiquitous web of interconnected devices.
The "Background" history talks about how Apple invented the PC but got overtaken and later knowing that they could not recapture the market, moving into the iPod and iTunes, and then the iPhone.Touranushertz (talk) 17:55, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
- That section seemed like unnecessary duplication of content already covered in Apple's article. 01:53, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
- Actually it is a bit more focused than the general history on the Apple page, which is more about product releases.
- The effect on other companies is also significant, regarding whether they have adapted successfully to the Post-PC era or not in the view of analysts and the market.Touranushertz (talk) 18:14, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
- Could you please stop disruptively restoring that previous revision that you created? It was a messy revision, full of unneeded content, stuff that could be constituted original synthesis of published material, and other issues. You are causing an edit war, and after similar issues I had on another page, I do not wish to go through one again. I actually have restored sections regarding other companies (some of it actually sourced from your version of the article), but conducted in a cleaner manner. 23:54, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
Bill Gates launched iCloud?
"Gates popularized the term "post-PC" in 2007, and in 2011 launched iCloud". So Bill Gates launched Apple's iCloud service? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:05, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
- This seemed to be vandalism of some form, and it has been resolved. Thanks for noticing! 13:22, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
The PC still dominates
