If the consumer electronics and personal computing industries are indeed rushing toward a grand digital convergence as some folks think, “Steve Jobs has a better chance than many of the others to rethink the idea of personal media in the living room,” Richard Doherty, president of Envisioneering, a computer industry research and consulting firm, told The New York Times. “I know his iPod design team has been busy working on new products,” he adds in the article that’s noted at MacSurfer. Doherty believes if Apple and Jobs can reinvent the home-computer-as-entertainment-and-information-hub the way he led the creation of a “seamless way of delivering digital music,” analysts think he could “shake up the plans of all the other more powerful corporate interests trying to figure out what consumers want,” the Times adds.
