ARM dominates the smartphone and tablet world, but it isn't the first name that comes to mind when you think of Computex. The massive tradeshow in Taiwan, which is going on this week, is largely devoted to the PC industry, and in particular to the many companies that manufacture and assemble the components that go into the world's desktops and laptops.

But the computing world has changed. Smartphones have become mini-computers. Tablets are eating away at laptop sales. And the release later this year of Windows 8 and Windows RT will for the first time put the x86 and ARM worlds in direct competition on a range of devices.

Perhaps that is why ARM decided to get a jump on the competition and hold a media event before the show began. The company didn't break any news, but executives talked about how in a post-PC era the company's technology is finding its way into everything from more powerful smartphones to laptops and servers.
