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.

In response to the first comment about programming:
Self hosting is not a prequisite for a PC!!! Personal Computing is a prequisite. Users do not program. They use. PCs are not made for use by a professional in computing. They are made for use by USERS. Thus the name Personal computer, not Professional Computer.
