Best Business Ideas in the World

Business 2.0 magazine talks about the 29 Best Business Ideas in the World (Subscription required). One of the columns by Om Malik is about the new face of the PC revolution.



The next PC revolution will be televised. It uses less power than a night-light and plugs into a TV. Best of all, as the first $100 computer, it's affordable enough to propel the rest of the world into the digital age. About two miles inland from Chennai's long white-sand beaches -- part of a stretch of Indian coastline hammered by last year's tsunami -- the downtown sidewalks buzz with life during the morning rush. Vendors flog coconut water and newspapers while rope-thin men in ankle-length lungis jostle for space with office workers in polo shirts and slacks. Three floors up in one of the city's numerous office towers, past a row of cubicles and half a dozen programmers, 38-year-old Rajesh Jain points to a table that holds, he'll tell you repeatedly, personal computing's next big thing.

  • @IBH,
    The phone and TV will be enablers of Personal Computing.

    @Ganesh,
    I think Dayanidhi Maran got this message and is using a similar gimmick to promote the sub INR 10K PC manufactured by HCL.
