Single device, multiple form factors

By 2030, we will have transcended the need for owning multiple microprocessor-based devices. Instead, everyone will have a core-computing unit, a device that contains a microprocessor, some onboard storage for buffering and offline availability and wireless/cellular radios for cloud connectivity. The device will have a standard interface, developed by a consortium of electronics manufacturers, that allows interoperability, in the same vein as USB standards do today. This device will dock into your car when you drive, have a tablet-sized screen for reading and emailing, engage with a lap-dock when you work from home, or connect to your desk and monitors while at work. This allows for a contiguous user experience while moving from place to place and switching from task to task.
