>"Pervasive Computing" is the strongly emerging trend toward:
>     Numerous, casually accessible, often invisible computing devices
>     Mobile or embedded in the environment
>     Connected to an increasingly ubiquitous network structure
>Failing to see and act upon this trend may be very costly to U. S.
>Information Technology companies; just as it was for mainframe companies
>ignore the emergence of personal computers; and for the PC companies to
>ignore the infant World Wide Web.

>For computer users, the underlying premise is compelling: simplicity of
