In this address to the 2012 Mobile world congress, Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt focused on the 5 billion people lacking the technological resources that Earth’s other 2 billion people enjoy. Schmidt noted “For most people the digital revolution has not arrived yet. Every revelation begins with a small group of people. Imagine how much better it would be with another five billion people online.”Schmidt is dreaming of the day when disruptive technology reaches the offline masses and redefines the world. Disruptive technologies upset existing markets and networks, replacing dominant technology or creating entirely new industries. For 30 years, the PC was the king of disruptive consumer technology. In 2012, the Smartphone and tablet share the throne. Our friends at Frugal Dad come with an amazing infographic discussing the great disruption, the future of personal tech.
