The trend toward ubiquitous computing does not represent simply a change in the way people access and use information. In the end it will have a profound effect on the way people access and use services, enabling new classes of services that make sense only by virtue of being embedded in the environment. Ultimately, these technologies will lead us to a world of ubiquitous commerce.

In this chapter we explore this question in the context of a number of examples.
