MEM's doing many wonders. I think soon these sensors will be woven into our fabrics and this will monitor our sitting position in front of the PC's enable to improve our performance and health.

First you say that Google's Android will dominate, then you say how Apple's Siri will change everything. I see a bit of a conflict here.

@NSK: I feel tempted to say neither one! Both aren't open systems -we know iOS isn't but Android isn't either, contrary to the claims! Google controls it but allows the source to be downloaded. What is truly open is the up & coming Boot-2-Gecko (B2G) from Mozilla. When I met its CEO Gary Kovacs last year, one question I posed to him was-what is the future of browsers in the world of ubiquitous computing? Do they become irrelevant? Each mobile device has its own browser... His answer was -well, wait and see. I saw a presentation yesterday, at the Stanford Faculty club where some B2G developers showed what it can do. I hope B2G enjoys the same success as FireFox. MP Divakar

Junko, I will keep you posted. Had a nice chat with the CTO of Mozilla and also have some presentation materials on B2G. I understand how Mozilla monetizes FireFox but I am still in the dark about B2G's monetization mnodel. MP Divakar

we are not saying one is better than others...the idea of Siri-like services will surely spread everywhere over time...

I generally like the list, at least for technology sake... but I think many are solutions looking for problems. One thing is sure, we are networking the heck out of anything and everything! And losing privacy fast! MP Divakar

And once you expand the connectivity beyond a critical scale intelligence will arise and eventually render humans obsolete.:)

@pixies: scary(!) thoughts on extrapolation of networking to higher orders. I have read some what on evolutionary and self-organizing networks but I still consider them dependent on human intervention at least at several phases, for now. Human beings are already being rendered useless on several fronts with the advances in technology. We are supposed to advance in intellectual thought and their application to work life so we can justify the need for human interaction with processes & tools (in short, work!) but that line of argument seems to be struggling for validation, in some sectors. More automation is rendering human interaction with machines & tools unwanted. I honestly don't know where this stops! MP Divakar

For the ARMing of Windows, i wonder if Microsoft has any way to help developers port their apps to ARM conveniently?

Just wanted to draw attention to CogniVue's - also founding member of EVA - latest Smart Back-Up Camera Application dewarping, object detection & distance estimation running on a single CV2201 processor - 9x9mm2 incl sys mem dissipating ~250mW. How's that for 'powerful, low-cost, energy efficient processors as key enablers of this technology'. Check it out on http://www.youtube.com/user/cognivue/videos

All in the eyes. For some of us in Berkeley it has been a twenty year wait for the perception that MEMS is emergent. This insures that the actual core inventors get neither credit nor monetary reward.
