Editorial Last week, Apple again repeated its claim that the iPhone and iPod Touch are capable of filling the netbook niche. They also claimed that netbooks can barely be called personal computers. Both of these statements are complete and utter nonsense, but instead of writing down some high-level definition of what a netbook is, I decided to simply write down all the things I do with my netbook that the iPhone/iPod Touch cannot do to make the difference between the two that much more tangible.

Apple users != normal people with comon sense ;-)

So for a real apple user an iPhone/iPod Touch offers what they want from a "mobile mini device"

I think we can extend the equation to

AppleUser + iPhone = Netbook + PCUser
where as
AppleUser = PCUser - CommonSense
and
iPhone = Netbook - Keyboard and freedom of choice

q.e.d.
