"The Internet is in the midst of a transformation that will soon
see automobiles turned into "mobile portals," printers becoming
"smart devices" that produce stamps and e-mail messages, and Web
access becoming as readily available and reliable as water and
electricity, North America's top female executive said
"'We are entering a fundamentally different phase of the
Internet,' Carly Fiorina, chairwoman, CEO and president of
Hewlett-Packard Co., told a gathering of IT specialists at an Intel
Corp. event. 'Any asset, process or service that can be digitized
is going to be delivered over the Internet.'"
"The transformation is being driven by improved hardware and
software and open standards such as the Linux operating system. A
key part of the emerging technology is Intel's new Itanium
processor being rolled out this quarter for mid-range and high-end
servers and workstations, Ms. Fiorina said."
