@BenedictEvans true. But somehow, for 40 years, the press treats concept cars as something relevant to future products. Yet it's marketing. @BenedictEvans vaporware @mikeyavo "David Pakman thinks apps will become a more popular of accessing the web, changing everything!"Um, this already happened...like, 3 years ago. https://t.co/C1VvGIeiwx
