Consumer Tech Spending Visualization

Fantastic infoporn from Wired (the guys who really invented the genre). Note that tech spending is only 5% of total consumer spending, and cable, telco, and mobile spending account for 70% of that. It seems inevitable that the amount spent on these areas will fall, and the amount paid directly to content owners will rise. The pie may or may not grow, but the distribution will almost certainly change.
