Speaking of technology going the way of the Dodo, Zach Epstein of Boy Genius Reports looks at a major shift among consumers:

Smartphones out-shipped feature phones for the first time in Q1 this year and according to market research firm DisplaySearch, smartphones will continue to dominate basic cell phones for the rest of 2013. The firm sees smartphone shipments hitting 937 million units this year, handily topping the 889 million feature phones expected to ship.

Driving this growth is a market for cheaper smartphones, along with the ubiquity of mobile broadband.
