In 1997, during my second year of university, I bought my first personal computer, or PC. A sleek, black Compaq Presario with a handy internal 14.4 modem. While I enjoyed playing many hours of Civ II between writing the odd term paper, little did I know the PC had actually died years earlier.
And now, 16 years later, the PC is still dying. Or dead. According to some, anyway. So pretend the PC you’re probably reading this on is a mirage as we share decades of so-called experts predicting its demise.
