The Digital Hub, Version 2.0 →

Ben Thompson:

It’s true, of course, that the “Digital Hub” was the last golden age of the PC; one of the digital accessories for the PC was the iPod, which led the way to the iPhone and iPad, which relegated the PC to a specialized device. It wouldn’t surprise me if, over the course of the next decade, the alleged iWatch follows a similar path with regards to the iPhone.

Thompson presents an interesting theory about what role Apples iWatch could play in the company’s ecosystem in the future.
