Apple's iPad changed the supply chain, now MS Windows 8 tablets are going to do the same.
In February, I contributed to the 2.67 percent of all global traffic accessing the Internet through Microsoft's latest Windows 8 operating system (OS), after purchasing a Surface Pro tablet with touch screen. Adoption grew that month from 2.26 percent in January, according to web tracker NetApplications, which jumped 1.72 percent in December 2012, sequentially.
While Windows 8 now sits in fourth place just behind Windows 7 at 44.55 percent, Windows XP at 38.99 percent and Windows Vista at 5.17 percent, the slight sequential rise last month points to changes in the electronics industry that will inevitably occur through a more intuitive OS. It will change the electronics industry and its manufacturing supply chain through touch.
Tech leaders need to believe in their vision while not ignoring their failures, according to speakers at this year’s Global Leadership Conference organized by alumni of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). Speakers also encouraged attendees to combine technological vision with a focus on giving back to society.
