PC sales continue to head south.
    
The financial information firm Interactive Data Corp. says worldwide PC sales are now expected to fall almost 10-percent in 2013. In May, IDC had forecast global PC sales would dip 7.8 percent this year after falling four-percent in 2012.
    
Sales of desktop and laptop computers have tumbled as more users switch to tablets and other mobile devices.
    
IDC said sales in emerging markets will decrease at a steeper rate than sales in older markets, reversing a trend from previous years. IDC said sales will continue falling in 2014.
    
PC sales peaked at 363 million units in 2011.
