In contrast to Apple's stunning success, the first calendar quarter of 2011 was a revolving door for other Silicon Valley companies and executives. There were management shifts, shakeups and ousters at AMD, Google, HP and Microsoft. They were variously aimed at jump-starting product momentum (AMD, Microsoft), polishing a tarnished image and placating stockholders (HP) and providing an orderly transition of power (Google). You need a scorecard to keep up with all the comings and goings.


The biggest development in 2011 is the arrival of the of the Post-PC era. The signs have been out there to see and to measure for many months now.
But no real comment from the author. Where does the rise and fall of the Hurds and others of little achievement fit into the juggernaut of real change?
There are dozens of consequences of this force majeure change to discuss in this context, the smallest of which is more important than an AMD or a Hurd.
