A lot of people say that Mark Cuban is just a guy with good timing (He unloaded Broadcast.com on Yahoo for billions during the bubble) and a big mouth (He owns the Dallas Mavericks and likes to yell at NBA refs) But his post on the future of personal computing here is one of the smartest things I've read on the topic in a long time. For years we've been obsessed with whether the PC was going to take over the TV in the living room or vis-versa. Most recently it's been about whose living room box is better - Apple's, Microsoft's, the cable companies' etc etc. Cuban wonders if we are all wrong: If hard core graphics intensive computing won't be done on a game console that's browser enabled and connected to a keyboard. He wonders if the rest of our tasks - casual internet, email, writing, spreadsheets and presentations - won't be done on thin clients. The thin client debate is older than the popular Internet (12 years), but this is a twist on it I haven't seen before.
