Re: Google's Celebration Of Diversity
That is a great point. Software tends to follow hardware that is in mass availability in the market. If the majority of users in the market have 2GB of ram then, software that works on 2GB will be the software that we consider as great.
Maybe, Project Era could change the relationship and economics of software and hardware. If great software is available that requires 3GB for instance, then, a user will only need to change their memory module. If software requires 4 back-facing cameras then again, modules can be changed. The PC era is back!
However, software is still the most important aspect of the system. It will be the software developers that enable an environment that can deliver maximum value through software that is collaborative. In a business, procurement and sales are different functions and working together, the two functions create value. In the same way, software will need to function on both the 4-camera device that will capture information and the 3GB device that will process information.
