Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

Old is not always bad, and new is not automatically better. There are plenty of things that are very wrong with what Apple is doing, and pointing that out doesn't mean that we're idiots who can't clearly see where the technology is headed.

That shouldn't need to be said; it should be obvious. The revelation that "things will probably be different in ten years!" shouldn't by everybody who wants to do things differently a free pass out of critical analysis of the benefits and costs of their proposition, nor should it require me to come up with some brilliant scheme to Fundamentally Alter the Desktop to point out the obvious downsides in Apple's brilliant plan.
