Of course the PC is dieing. The 8 track is gone, the laser disc is gone, etc.
Nope. You could say big screen TV is dying, but actually, ..., they got bigger. Just like people want bigger trucks, they will want bigger computers, ..., to impress their friends.
Don't confuse formats with devices.

By time "Money" magazine or "Business Week" notice a trend, it is too late to make money in stocks. They are notorious about publishing bullish covers at the top of markets.
You amended to your title to be less trollish and less inflammatory. The "PC" will not die. There will always be need for a powerful computer in the home. It might be a single machine used by an entire household and not in a desktop or deskside "box", more like a server rack blade accessed by the occupants and the house and the appliances and the entertainment systems and the car in the garage, etc.
The bottom line is that photographers who care (and there are a lot of them) will not process their photos on iPhones. Duh.
If my home is an indication of trends, and I don't see why not, then I have to agree the computer as we know it today is slowly dying. We used to have 3 computers in the house, all being used. Now with everyone having smart phones for their e-mail and browsing and a couple of iPads, our lone "computer" sits idle except for my image processing. I can see a day where the desktop and even the laptop of today will be dead.
