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?

The iPad is a personal computing device, so it is a PC in the literal sense. But it is clearly something different from the devices that the term "PC" typically refers to, so it's not a PC in the "if it walks like a duck..." sense.
