“Some men see things as they are and say why,” said George Bernard Shaw. “I dream things that never were and say why not.” Shaw was a creative force– he wrote more than 60 plays, won a Nobel Prize and an Oscar, and co-founded the London School of Economics.

Gartner cites multicore/hybrid processors, augmented reality, new user interfaces, contextual computing and Web mashups as emerging game-changers. For more about the book, click here.
