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.

did you miss the part of the article which describes how someone spends more time on a tablet than on a powerful PC?


Oh, ffs. We really need a Godwin variant for tablet discussions:

"As an online discussion of iPads grows longer, the probability of a poster invoking an older relative who uses their iPad in preference to their desktop/laptop computer approaches 1"

A bit unweildy, but we can work on it.
