However, the arrival of iPhone dealt a deadly blow to MP3 players, while iPads killed theportable video player. The Android-powered counterparts of the two Apple gadgets only sped upthe process.

The personal computer is dying a slow death courtesy tablets. Tablets are a much better option for those who want to mainly watch movies, surf the internet and play a few games.
