It
seems like only yesterday that only a few people in the neighborhood
had the privilege of owning a landline phone. Today, mobile phones
are commodity items,and everyone in the family has one and
professionals use them for productivity on the move. PCs used to cost
lacs of rupees, and were therefore affordable to only a few large
enterprises. Today, we’re talking about entering the post-PC era,
with the onslaught of so many mobile devices. It wasn’t long ago that
Internet browsing was done from a black and white command line
interface by geeks, and today, everybody and their cousins are on
Facebook, Twitter, etc, creating a huge market worth tapping.

Not long ago, two wheelers
were booked well in advance, and delivered several years later if you
were lucky. Today, you can get a 3D view of a vehicle online, compare
multiple brands, and simply walk up to any showroom to pick up what
you like. The same goes for any product or service.


Technology has improved
production cycles, reduced cost, and enhanced customer experience,
all without compromising on quality. It has indeed brought a sea of
change to our lives. So much so that it’s difficult to imagine how we
ever managed without it!

PCQuest has played a
catalyst’s role in enabling professionals, organizations, and
consumers alike in understanding how to leverage ICT better. We would
like to thank all our readers in supporting us throughout this
journey and making it so successful.

As we complete
25 years of PCQuest, we take a nostalgic look at how the PC story
started with those ugly yet path-setting machines of the past, and
gradually evolved into products and tech that define modern-age
computing.

We also look at
the journey of the now ubiquitous Internet and the people and
companies that put on years of research and sweat into making those
lovely IT gadgets buzz around us.

Also,
presented is the history of of IT’s evolution in India as narrated
by the pioneers and veterans of Indian IT industry who’ve seen and
driven it all around themselves. We capture the past, present and the
future outlook for the IT industry in India.
