Hardware, Embedded Systems InfoWorld's Neil McAllister offers 10 reasons why the PC is here to stay despite Steve Jobs' recent pronouncement that the iPad signals the end of the PC era. 'Depending on whom you ask, the iPad will save journalism, rescue the book publishing business, transform the movie industry, change the way we communicate, and make the perfect omelet. But there are plenty of reasons to suspect that at least some of these predictions will prove overly optimistic. Even more dubious is the idea that the iPad signals a true sea change in computing,' McAllister writes. Chief among the reasons the PC is not dead yet are desktops' comparative cost-effectiveness, the lack of versatility of mobile devices, the fact that desktop and mobile OSes don't mix, and limitations inherent to tablet devices' dependencies on the cloud.

IMO these articles are pretty funny. Seriously, who didn't know it. Apple is hyping like any other company would. Looks like there isn't anything interesting to write, hmm?

What comes next?
3D-TV won't replace usual TV?
Quantum cryptography won't replace usual cryptography?
The WWW won't become 3D?
Touch screens won't replace keyboard and mouse?
You won't control your computer with your mind or voice?
Cell or GPUs won't replace x86(_64) CPUs?

So not only history is repeating, news and articles are too. Guess I should do the same with comments like this *g*
