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.

Prefixing a term with "small" sometimes puts the result term into a different category from the original term. I wouldn't have any difficult in working hours on a word document on any laptop with 13' screen and standard keyboard, but I will never try to do so on a screen even 11'.
