Ajay Bhatt, the co-inventor of USB, is working to reinvent the PC. “We said let’s make a ubiquitous plug on a computer so that any device that’s plugged in just starts working.

Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group, anticipates attention at CES 2013 will center on two points of conflict. “You’ve got the 7-inch tablet and the 4-inch smartphone that are starting to ram together on the one end and we’ve got the 13.3-inch notebook and the 11.6-inch tablet ramming together on the other end,” he said.
This year, convergence will really happen with notebooks and tablets, said Enderle. “A lot of people are arguing that you can get one device that can do both things,” he said, referring to new Ultrabook computers that convert into tablets.
John Jackson, vice president at IDC, expects to see the halls of CES full of what he calls conver
gence experiments. “Convertibles beg the question of the extent to which tablets will remain a distinct or discretely identifiable category over time or whether or not they’re just a logical evolution of the PC,” he said.

And what are you doing about it?
“If a 15-year old who didn’t even know he had a pancreas can develop a sensor for pancreatic cancer that costs 3 cents and [takes] 5 minutes to run, imagine what those additional 3.5 billion people and just about anyone can do,” Jack Andraka told me in an interview following his speech at the recent TEDx SanJose event.
I walked with Jack down the halls of Intel, where engineers, computer scientists and researchers have played a key role in creating the technologies that Jack uses as if they were as accessible as air. I though that if healthcare is to become the next space race, it will require emphatic, big idea chasing wunderkinds like Jack, the 15-year-old has been called the Thomas Edition of our age, a science prodigy and genius ahead of his time for inventing a faster, cheaper, more reliable way to detect pancreatic cancer.
In the interview captured with my iPhone 5, Jack told me that now he is teaming with two other award-winning teens to develop a disease diagnosis device the size of a smartphone to compete for the $10 million X Prize.
Now that’s drive and inspiration.
Here’s my full story for Intel Free Press: Big Data Key to Disease Detection Quest.
Holiday season can be a frenzied time with desires, obligations and talk about winners and losers of the year. With so much clamoring for our attention, things that we really want often slip out of reach.
Despite the business press bashing Best Buy success, or lack there of, my Intel Free Press team did some gumshoe reporting to see if one particular new transformable computer was hot on people’s wishlist.
The Lenovo IdeaPad 13 “Yoga,” an Ultrabook that converts into a tablet, was out of stock at several Best Buy stores across the U.S.
“We don’t comment on specific products, but I can tell you that it [the Lenovo Yoga] has been one of our best sellers from a Windows 8 perspective. There’s been a ton of interest. It’s a really cool form factor and product and it’s one you really need to see in person to understand what it can do for you.”
Haydock said they were working to increase inventory in time for the holidays. “We’re doing everything we can in terms of working with Lenovo to increase inventory in stores.”
Anyone else struggling to find a Lenovo Yoga for the holidays?
