Share Your Thoughts on the "Post-PC" Era

It seems tablets are all the rage these days, but while they're certainly providing a new and unique ways to consume media, does that mean the "old-school" personal computer will be going away?

As stated by Steve Jobs not too long ago during the iPad 2 reveal, he quoted the growing trend of "mobile OS" that'll eventually take over the PC market. And while the numbers are certainly indicating this may in fact be true, it's hard to see the personal computers becoming obsolete any time soon.

For me, I am not only a full-time employee, but I'm a gamer, a blogger, and movie junkie - I enjoy having some form of control and ownership in the technology and media I buy. As much as I love the convenience of reading my e-mails on my smartphone, there is something I find invaluable in having a primary 'super-computer' that takes care of thing such as file organizing, archiving, and a powerhouse for more intensive computing duties.

But perhaps I'm just old-fashioned and need to give trying to organize media myself when Netflix provides an instant-streaming option (with recommendations the more I use it) and purchase gaming consoles instead of trying to keep up my Wolfenstein 3D days with a mouse and keyboard.

What do you guys think? Is the PC on its way out? Share your thoughts below!
