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 ;-)


You know, many, many Apple users have used their common sense to move away from PCs. Don't tell me Apple users are gullible or stupid.

Normal people (I speak of OS geeks) don't mind pissing their time away keeping their PCs running. Fine, have fun. Many Apple users have decided to spend their time working on other things besides their OSes.
