    Future of computing...no computers

    Well no 'device' anyway.

    In Google's annual shareholder letter new current CEO Sundar Pichai talks about the evolution of computers from clunky desktops to mobile devices and envisions a future in which computers start to lose physical form...

    Looking to the future, the next big step will be for the very concept of the “device” to fade away. Over time, the computer itself—whatever its form factor—will be an intelligent assistant helping you through your day
    Hard to wrap the head around this. But then if someone had said 15 years ago we could pull a wallet size device out of our pocket, ask it a question, and have it give an useful, informative answer probably would have been equally skeptical.

    ps
    was referring to Siri, not a live dealer who you have ask (playing on your mobile) something like 'do you guys draw a card on all 17s'

    But this would have been equally unfathomable
