In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

But SOMEONE programmed it to display/create (camera, etc.) that content. Are you saying the end user has to be the one to be able to program it? I know many people that simply played games on their Commodore 64 and never even tried to program it (complete lack of interest, not intellect). That didn't stop the C64 from being a "personal computer" nor should it stop the iPad or a smartphone from being considered one. They are all programmable.
