the end of hardware

A BusinessWeek online article :

IBM's decision to put $1 billion into services R&D is a telling sign that the ground under info tech is shifting radically

It seems to me that Business Week has arrived at this conclusion a bit late. The "hardware era" ended a few years ago, possibly the day that Netscape released Navigator 1.0, possibly even before than when Microsoft released Windows 3.0 and showed that you could be the most powerful company in the computer world simply by creating software.
