The phrase that set of this hubub is vague enough that one could argue
that it is already true. How many MIPS are expended worldwide in
figuring out when to deploy air bags, at what temperature to microwave
pop-corn, switch cells, decode DVDs, unscramble satellite symbols and so
forth.

As the buzzheads at Comdex say: it's the PC *plus* era.
