Why assume that the mobile revolution is a post-pc era?. PC are going to stay here and co-exist with all these new gadgets for quite a long time. So companies planning their strategies should not count out PCs as something gone by

"post-PC" indeed sounds a little dramatic. PC has become more like TV, still there but not "hot".

It would be interesting for someone ("somebody else, not me" as they say ;) ) to write a book following the trajectories of high-tech manufacturer's like Motorola/Freescale and HP. I remember the richly diverse product base that Freescale had--discretes, optoelectronics, communication IC's, processors, and comprehensive coverage of the logic families, including their ECL products, and how some of these products were spun off, with the creation of On-Semiconductor as an example. In what ways is a company's growth encouraged, and what factors stifle or subvert creativity? It seems that creativity, properly guided and harnessed propels a company forward and helps created new markets that provide positive feedback for further growth. It will be interesting to follow Freescale over the next few years and watch their progress.
