MIPS are death, Megabits/connectivity becomes the law

May 23, 2009

As Gigaoam puts it “My COMMputing (Communications+computing) view of the world puts the speed of the networks and the availability of connectivity at a level higher than the raw oomph of a processor or the capacity of a memory chip” http://gigaom.com/2009/05/22/why-its-the-megabits-not-the-mips-that-matter/#more-51335

and though most of the people do not recognized it in a formal way, it is true that MIPs were the key performance metrics. However, now we all ask whether you have this or that ammoung of megabits of your communications. We have moved from a world were the bottleneck used to be the power of computers to a world were the bottleneck is the speed of our connectivity.

Will it affect the value of companies in the market, and those helping connectivity will succeed in market cap, while those centeered in computer power will slowly become uninteresting stocks?
