According to him, wallets would be digitized and these devices would be everything people would ever need for a transaction.
Steve Ballmer was interviewed at the D8 conference where he commented on Macs and the iPad. According to Steve Ballmer, PCs would grow in huge numbers and people would continue to use them. He even mentioned that Macs could become like trucks in the near future, but PCs won’t. They would still continue to operate in large numbers. Speaking about the iPad, Ballmer believes the iPad to be a PC with a different form factor.
