Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

- iPhone/iPad: walled garden
- iCloud: no encryption (same with ChromeOS ?)

I don't see them solving this any time soon.

As I have no problem with a post-PC-era, as it seems to resolve to much around Windows anyway. I do think webapps are the solution to atleast the first part.

I know it sounds counter-productive. But it very much depends on the implementation. I want control of my data and thus I think efforts like http://www.unhosted.org/ http://www.freedomboxfoundation.org/ need a lot more attention. They may be new projects, but they do solve this.
