The fate of the servers, the fate of the cameras

Om Malik sees similarities between cameras and servers:

But mostly, our pictures — even the best ones — function as glorified postcards on Instagram, Facebook, or some other messaging app. No one on WhatsApp cares if you made a photo in 50 megapixels or 12 megapixels Just as, in the cloud, no one gives two hoots if your server is Sun, Dell or HP.

I think he’s onto something. I also agree with him: I love my camera.
