Sounds to me everyone is building a technological house of cards

I think we have the technology which can almost solve all the technical challenges but the people are always looking for sophisticated solutions which might keep challenging the technologies. Any technology that can not help in creating an really purpose product doesn't do any good. I always want to listen from the engineers what is the technology that is yet to reach its maturity to actually be useful? My share on this would be the wireless power. I wish we will see more n more developments of this in the near future.

Of course Aart de Geus is correct, this has been, and will continue to be a long term trend. But we seem to be inching up to a tipping point where complexity of chip design and fabrication and system design and manufacture are becoming unbearable for many companies. First pass success becomes more difficult yet more necessary due to the huge costs involved. The leading edge of the electronics industry is painting itself into a corner. With every new node down the semiconductor roadmap there are fewer new designs that are cost enabled.

The cloud could be used with low cost thin client netbooks running open source software. Many universities have free courseware now days. And it could start with recycling of trade-in netbooks by those moving to tablets. Why wait for a newly manufactured solution?

This is simply called industrial herding. They want to minimize exposure to risks and not necessarily to innovate. It is self preservation first.

I do not see any electronic ecosystem change - issues of investment in technology have always existed for this industry. The one area that I see changing is the sales of patent portfolios in the telecommunications industry. This has the potential for expensive and prolonged legal battles if one technology provider (iPhone, Android, etc) discovers they depend upon a patented component of another.

It is all going towards more sophistication, but very few companies are working for General Purpose Processing Units Range/Families, which can be universally used in the products where size of the product does not matter much, the Electronics and/or Systems will become more widely used at so many places where it is not being used. Thanks to Chinese they made all the latest technologies available to an average human being. Still there is a huge potential (That is more than the market of iPhone/Smart Phone) if an affordable computing product can be offered to school students in third world countries.
