Computers, those big bulky things sitting on a desk with a keyboard, a tower and a monitor, aren't going away anytime soon. They will, however, be delegated to more specific tasks, kind of like how we use a truck. "People don't drive around in them all the time, but they'll use them for special purposes, to get particular types of work done."
I haven't always agreed with Jobs, and didn't then, but I've since come around to this particular view of his, and come around pretty completely. I'm now convinced that what we think of as laptops and desktops today will be relegated to pretty nichey sorts of work tasks. The future, obviously at this point, belongs to other, more human & invisible, types of machines.
I've been living with just my tablet and phone recently -- it feels clearer & clearer that many people will just skip the computer phase altogether.
