The PC: Death by 1000 Texts

On December 3, 1992, Neil Papworth, a 22-year-old engineer, sent the first text message from his personal computer to his boss’s cellphone. It read: “Merry Christmas” and revolutionized the way we communicate. From its humble beginnings 24 years ago, texting has exploded into the world’s preferred method of communication.

  • Over 350 billion text messages are sent each month globally.
  • 90% of cellphone users worldwide text at least once per day.
  • 18 to 24 year olds are the heaviest texters averaging 110 sent and received texts a day.

Texting is just another nail in the PC coffin. Last year, PC shipments declined by 9.5% in the second quarter, while Apple reported shipping 61 million iPhones during the same period.  In 2015, mobile web searches also passed PC web searches, further proof of the PC demise.

Google is also an accomplice in the death of PCs. They prioritize websites that are mobile friendly—responsive websites—and penalize websites that remain static and difficult to read on a tablet or smartphone.

So, it’s time to upgrade your website to a smartphone friendly responsive website. A responsive website adjusts to the size of the smartphone screen, allowing for optimum navigation, pixel perfect pictures and the ability to read words at the perfect size. An investment in a responsive website is an investment in attracting the smartphone user to your business.
