PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless An article at The Next Web points out that the latest marketshare numbers put Apple at the top of "PC" makers, and that some PC makers that don't have any tablet momentum are calling foul. It's "controversial" to count tablets as PCs, they say. The article points out various justifications for not categorizing tablets as personal computers, and then shoots them down. I must say, I find the argument compelling.

This is a discussion about words. Personal Computer is obviously an old term without clear definition now. There are desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablets, phones and tv-boxes. All of them are clear. But what PC is? I think it is a big box with two floppy drives and CRT-monitor on top with IBM PC engraved on it.
