Apple has such a magnetic brand presence, it is easy to assume that Windows-based tech is dead and gone – if you only pay attention to flashy presentations. But the death of the PC has been dramatically overstated, as you can see from the trend lines in sheer numbers.

That said, we’re in new territory here, where the sales of the iPhone have finally overtaken those of Windows PCs.

The most important implication from this trend line is that mobile computing is finally and officially dominant as the driver of the future of tech.
